About
See two marvels of Chinese engineering, ancient and modern, in one day on this 8-hour private trip to Shilinxia Glass Platform and the Site of Ming City Wall Park. Step out above a 1300-foot (400-meter) canyon on the vertiginous glass platform, the largest cantilevered viewing platform in the world, then see the ruins of the 15th-century wall that once encircled all Beijing.

What to expect
  • After pickup from your central Beijing hotel, travel by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the Shilinxia Scenic Area, also called the Jingdong or Pinggu Stone Forest Gorge, or Jingdong Grand Canyon. Along the way, head into the rolling hills northeast of the city and listen as your guide shares stories about the Stone Gorge and the Shilinxia Platform. The gorge consists of millennias-old stone formations and peaks, all interspersed by valleys, rivers, pools, and waterfalls. After your journey, arrive at the Shilinxia gateway and admire the strangely shaped rock formations. Then, ride a cable car (own expense) halfway up the gorge’s highest mountain. Disembark here and climb the rest of the way to the peak up the stairs. On arrival, take in the spectacular, circular glass platform protruding about 107 feet (32.8 meters) from the mountainside and suspended about 1,300 feet (400 meters) up. Don the shoe covers and walk onto the glass, absorbing the incredible views to the gorge base and across to Jinhai Lake and Mount Pan. The platform projects 37 feet (11.4 meters) further than the US Grand Canyon Skywalk, so the experience is breathtaking—providing you’re not terrified of heights! Afterward, savor lunch at a Chinese restaurant before making the journey to Beijing’s Ming City Wall Park. Drink in the park’s peaceful atmosphere and see its showpiece: the last remaining, and restored section of the 15th-century wall that once encircled Beijing. Admire the 1.2-mile (2-kilometer) Ming-era edifice, noting its brickwork and bullet holes, and climb the Southeast Corner Watchtower, complete with 144 arrow windows, as your guide outlines its history. Your trip then concludes with a hotel drop-off.
