Just north of the Great Wall at Badaling and 80 kilometers (50 miles) from downtown Beijing, Great Wall Adventure Club now can deliver to you the splendor of Longqing Gorge, which is located in the northeast of Yanqing County. The gorge, reputed to be the “Little Three Gorges”, features clear water, wooded mountains, and wonderful karst caves. The gorge's main attractions are the Longqing Gorge Cruise, Baihua (hundred Flowers) Cave, and the Shenxianyuan (Immortal) and Jingang temples. Near the entrance, a grand waterfall plummets down 50 meters (164 feet) from the dam above. A long, dragon-shaped escalator carries visitors to the dam, where the cruise begins. On both sides, eerie mountains and strange formations inspire visitors' imaginations as they have for centuries. You can marvel at the huge, natural Buddha stone and a hill rising from the water like a great bell. Another hill, named Fengguan (Phoenix Coronet) Isle, is considered the symbol of the gorge. Fengguan is surrounded on three sides by water and closed off by high mountains on the fourth.


While we do not offer guided tours of Longqing Gorge, we do offer a hassle-free drop-off and pick-up service to and from the gorge. You will be picked up from where ever you stay, be it a hostel, budget hotel or a luxury hotel. This service will include your own car and driver, ensuring that you can get to Longqing Gorge in both peace, comfort and safety.


Every year, the Ice and Snow Festival, held from January to February in the gorge, displays many beautiful ice lanterns. This is Longqing Gorge’s most famed and renowned attraction. During the festival, the marvelous ice waterfalls together with the lanterns attract many visitors. Except for the Ice and Snow Festival, Longqing Gorge only opens to visitors from April 10 to November 15.

But you can experience Longqing Gorge during all of the four seasons, from the heat of the tropics to the heart of the northeastern China, thanks to the colorful lights and elaborately crafted flowers in Baihua Cave. In the Shenxianyuan Temple area, several huge stones halfway up the cliff resemble chessboards. It's said that rubbing on the trunk of the tree near the edge of cliff can cure illnesses. The Yuhuang Peak is the highest in the area, and the teahouse at the peak offers a wonderful position from which to appreciate the scenery. In the Jingang Temple area, a hill looking like a pen gently dips into the water as if it were clearest ink. A karst cave nearby, Minting Coins Stove, is the place where two brothers made fake money to save the poor in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).


Longqing Gorge is also an ideal place to do extreme sports such as bungee-jumping (CNY 150 per person), rock-climbing or abseiling (CNY 50 per person). Tickets for the cruise, the Baihua Cave, the Shenxianyuan Temple and the Jingang Temple are respectively CNY 60, 10, 20 and CNY 10 per person.
