Planning a visit to come to Shanghai or already here and not sure what to visit? Here are some suggestions:
Huanghuacheng is a village located in the north of China. The town is famous for being close in proximity to a section of the Great Wall that was built during the Ming Dynasty. The town is split into parts by lakes with some parts even being immersed in water, making it unique from other sections of the Wall. It's also named after the sea of yellow flowers that bloom in the summer, “huang hua” in Chinese.
The last activity in June will lead us to the Longqingxia Gorge (Dragon Rejoice Gorge), which was named after the birthplace of Emperor Renzong of the Yuan Dynasty. The Gorge is located about 85 kilometers north of Beijing and is part of a large reservoir around the Gucheng River.
We will be hiking along the Jingxi Gudao next Saturday. We start at 8.00 am at the Hutong School courtyard. For lunch, we will be stopping to have a picnic outdoors and will be back at School around 19.30 pm.
