It is about 90kilometers away from Beijing Center. The scenic spot is famous for its gorge. Visitors compare the scenery of the gorge to the Three Gorges of theYangtze River, but its mountains are much steeper than those along the Yangtze. The scenery also resembles the Li River in Guilin, but the water here is much clearer.

When you arrive at the spot, the first thing you will see is the Longqing Dam. The seventy-meter-high dam is inset between hills. Looking to the north side from the dam, the picturesque scenery of hills and white clouds reflected in deep green water can be appreciated.

But how do you get onto the dam? Use the elevator inside the body of an artificial dragon. The elevator is hidden in the majestic dragon. It is 258 meters (846 feet) long and can take people to a height of 90 meters.

Getting down from the dam, you have to enjoy the river and hills by cruise. Every turn around a hill in the river will surprise you because of the new view. Along the river you will see the heavily forested steep cliffs and the bare limestone in different fantastic shapes, eroded by the natural power of water. To some extent, it is much like Li River. Many of these rocks and hills have their own names, such as: Comb Hill, Immortal Taoist Temple, Flowers Cave and Jingang Temple

Flowers Cave is another must-see spot, which covers 3,000 square meters (0.74 acre). There are more than 1,650 kinds of artificial trees and flowers decorated with birds and other animals in the cave.

In addition, it is special for its ice lantern show in winter from January to February. Although every year, the lantern show has its own theme, but the spectacular ice fall against the dam wall is always the highlight. If you are keen to see the marvelous combination of the natural wonder and human creativity, you can go there during the winter.

Lunch , you can have lunch in a local restaurant ( If you need)  . You would know what is normal food for the local people.

After lunch ,it takes about 2 hour back to hotel 

Duration: 4 hours
