The scenic Shi Du region is located approximately 100 kilometers from Beijing city center and covers 300 square kilometers of natural forest, streams and amazing karst cliffs that give this place the nickname Guilin of the north. The area is like a beautifully painted corridor; crystal clear rivers cut through the mountains, and water-pools can be found at the feet of the slopes. Historic sites and cultural relics dot the landscape. Activities include hiking, boating, bungee jumping and water skiing. Horses are also available for hire making this a fun and easy get away spot for a weekend away from Beijing.
