Depart your hotel at 9:00 am
Then drive to the Longqing Gorge,It is located about 80 kilometers to the north of Beijing. The Longqing Gorge is flanked on both sides by green peaks.People often say Longqing Gorge is a small Li River in Guilin, but it is more beautiful than Li River; it is a small three gorges on the Yangtze River, but it is more dangerous than the Three Gorges.
The Longqing Gorge Mouth is towered by a reinforced concrete hyperbolic-arch dam which is 72 meters high and 90 meters long. There are two north-south tunnels at both ends of the dam. The South Tunnel is about 300 meters long, which reaches straight through beyond the mountains, while the North Tunnel is about 100 meters long, leading to the North Shipway. With a total length of 258 meters, Telron escalators have been built on the steep cliffs, which act as entrance routes into the scenic spot. They are large outdoor fully-closed dragon-shaped escalators. Tourists can take the escalators up to the terminal where tourists may take boats into the deep and secluded valleys inside the Longqing Gorge. The valleys feature beautiful scenery and clear water like mirrors, where tourists feast their eyes with not only cliffs, peaks and steep rocks, but also with many stone cones, stone swords, stone pillars, solution crevices.etc
