CJ750 Rides and Tours:
The surrounding area of Beijing is very rustic and beautiful. There are the mountains which the great wall sits on, the reservoir that holds the water for Beijing, water rafting, horse ridiing, fishing, camping, treking, small farming villages, trout BBQ and just incredible scenery with lots of winding roads and clean air.
