Mother’s Day Hike, May 8
Join the Beijing Hikers on a lovely hiking tour through Xiangtun Village to the Little Lake/ Yanqing. There are two trails to choose from depending on family size and ages of accompanying children.

Starting off on a dirt trail, off of the main road, you’ll walk through chestnut orchards towards a small village. The second 12 km trail, best for families with older children, goes through a forested and leafy valley, with a small stream flowing through it. Sign your family up for one of these and celebrate Mother Nature on Mother’s day!
