Description

This is a private tour takes you to visit Jingdong Karst Cave and  to experience the world's largest glass sightseeing platform in Shilinxia (Stone Forest Gorge). A Tasty home lunch at a local family, entrance fees, private guide and transfer services are all inclusive.

Pick up at 8:00am from your hotel in downtown Beijing (within the 3rd ring road). Drive 90km (2 hours) to Pinggu County. 

Firstly, visit the Stone Forest Gorge. The stone forest valley is 6 kilometers long with its main peak looking like trees put together, hence the name stone forest for the scenic area. The stone forest gorge area has dense plantations and fresh air, a good place to walk close to the greatness of the nature.
 
Move on to the world's largest glass sightseeing platform. It is hung out from the cliff on the highest peak inside Stone Forest Gorge (Shilinxia Scenic Area), 11 meters longer than the Grand Canyon Skywalk inside the Grand Canyon National Park in the United States. The transparent sightseeing platform allows you to have a terrific view of the valleys and mountains below. 
Spend about 2 hours at Stone Forest Gorge.

Walking about 40 minutes and then take the cable car up to the mountain.  Visit today's highlight: UFO Glass Sightseeing Platform.
The glass sightseeing platform, billed as “Flying Disk/UFO”, opened to the public on April 30, 2016. The glass platform hangs 32.8 metres out from the cliff, 11 meters longer than the Grand Canyon Skywalk inside the Grand Canyon National Park in the United States.
It is claimed to be the largest sightseeing platform in the world.

The transparent sightseeing platform is 800 meters above sea level and 400 meters high from the bottom of the cliff, a thriller for visitors who want to experience the excitement walking in the sky.

Those who have acrophobia are not recommended to step on the transparent breathtaking glass floor.

Then head to the Diaowo Village. The village has 54 households with over 100 villagers. Today you will meet Mrs Li and her husband Mr. Hao in their courtyard home. A few years ago Mrs. Li retired and left the busy downtown Beijing and relocated to her husband birth place for spending the retirement life.

Now she eats the vegetables she plants in her front yard and the Geese & Chickens in her back yard, enjoying an organic living and healthy life. You will have a home lunch made by Lady Li, chatting on their life and getting a good feel of its people of China.

After lunch, visit the second attraction - Jingdong Karst Cave, which has existed ever since 1.5 billion years before, hence the name of "The Oldest Karst Cave in the world". Spend about 1 hour at Jingdong Karst Cave.  

Return to your hotel in downtown in late afternoon.
