What We Love:

Characterized by needle-thin vertical trees and said to have been formed by an earthquake centuries ago, Shuiyang Forest and Lake provides a mysteriously beautiful destination for an overnight camp. On this two-night excursion, you'll spend a night in a hostel before two days of trekking in the Shuiyang area. You'll pitch tents beside the lake and enjoy dinner under a spectacular starry night sky. Led by experienced hiking guides, this itinerary discovers the varied nature and off-the-beaten-path routes in the foothills of Mount Jade, ideal for intermediate hikers.
