The sixth Beijing International Mountain Walking Festival has opened its registration, prior to this year’s festival which is comprised of a total of five separate events between April and October.

The various routes and dates are as follows:

Apr 18 – Yongding River
Jun 27 – Nanshi Ocean
Sep 9 – Zhaitang (pro hike)
Sep 12-13 Zhaitang (all)
Oct 17 – Qingshui

If you want to learn more about the individual routes, visit the organisers’ website. There are a range of different options and these hiking routes may be the best way to explore Beijing’s surrounding natural beauty.

To sign up, you can either use the online sign-up (unfortunately only in Chinese), or alternatively you can get in touch with the Mentougou District’s Competition Department of the Organizing Committee Office of the International Mountain Walking Festival (yes, those people), at 6983 3538 or 010 6983 3399, or email them at [email protected].
