Shidu: near Du 7 10 km loop trail thru valley

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 10:00 AM

At Shidu, the 'Guilin of the north e.g. scenic karst mountains 90 km from Beijing (take train /bus 917 from Beijing) near Du 7 there's supposingly a 10 km loop trail through the valley that few people take.

You need a good trail description / local to point you the way in order to do this 10 km loop trail. As a result it's a lot less crowded though then other parts of Du 7.

You can also take the ~1.5 km trail & back to the top of the mountain for views, which is well trodden (40 RMB: 2011 info).

FYI - I've never been here yet though would like to.

I also found this info:
Hiking/Camping Potential: The Pu Du Resort, about a mile past the main attraction area of Shidu, offers some excellent hiking and scenery. The Pu Du resort itself is a fairly new (opened in June 2001), modern 2-star hotel at the base of a network of miles of well-maintained, well-marked hiking trails winding far up into the valley, past goat herders sheds, ancient sea stone fossils, beautiful rock formations and several caves. There is a perfect camping spot 15 minutes up the trail at the ruins of a goat herders shed. The area around this shed is flat, open and has enough room for a number of tents. Continue up the main trail for several more miles and you will reach a spot high in the valley with a series of raised plateaus stair-stepping upward. These are perfectly flat, free of brush and would be ideal for camping. There is a water source along the lower part of the trail, none higher up.

    So my friend and I going to catch the bus 836 at TianQiao at 7am, if anyone else will go catch the bus, send me a message and we can meet at the bus station.

      Sure.

      We took the bus 836 at Tianqiao at 7am, you got to be careful because there are several "836 line", only one can get to Shidu. It took about 2.5 hour to get the Du6 second stop, where you should get off to go to the Gushanzhan valley. The entry fee is 75 yuan, and besides the valley, there are also some interesting mountains there you can explore, we spend about 4 hours there. And caught the bus 836 back at 2pm, just as the plan. Hopefully it helps.

    Hi Folks, i don't see any organizers for this meetup event, it was raised by Reni long time ago, our current setup is "a member can suggest a meetup and it becomes an official meetup if 10 more ppl attend it". So just to clarify that i don't think anyone from the organizer team arranges this meetup. I've been very busy with family matters in the past, if anyone wants to join the organizer team, please ping me, we'd like to share some of the nice hikes that you can organize.

    Thanks,

    Jia

      how's thing Jia, glad u showed up.. finally.. haha.. of late your meetup site has become very busy.. yes, you are right, with a few hundreds member you may like to appoint some event hosts.. so that events get organized.. however you can still set some rules for hosts and members, so that this web link remains a credible and well loved place to socialize.. i will be in Nanjing the whole month of September 2013.. may not be able to join you in the trek but you always have my support.. haha

      Echo, Sunny, I have to take a business travel to Nanjing tomorrow. So I can't attend this hike this time. My cell phone is 13910105388. Maybe we can catch up later. I'm really sorry about this.

    Seems there is no detail info, my friend and I will go there anyway. We plan to take the bus 917 and arrived at the Du6 around 10am. If anyone want to meet us and go hiking there, feel free to send me a message.
