Beijing – Camping Trips

Let us whisk you away to the nature reserve just outside of Beijing where your beautiful basecamp awaits! Our excellent Himalaya and Black Diamond Tents, along with our cozy Deuter sleeping bags, will protect you from the elements and keep you warm and dry for an excellent night’s sleep in the mountains. Whether you seek adventure, relaxation or both, our skilled guides will craft your time in the wilderness to meet your needs.

In the daytime read a great book by the river, chat with friends as you swim, or trek through the surrounding bush and crags. In the evening, enjoy warm, delicious food cooked over the fire. And for desert, roast some marshmallows for a s’more, and grab a cup of scrumptious cocoa or chai.

Our camping trips can be customized for your group. There are no age restrictions. Groups might include (but are not limited to)Chinese language classmates, international schools, church groups, or groups of friends. We also invite groups of families to plan a trip with their friends and kids! Minimum group size is 15 people.
