Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and go on a hiking tour in West Lake and Longjing Village. The tour will start at the hiking trail near Zheijiang University. After an hour of hiking, this relaxing trail will take you to the Northern Peak for a marvelous bird’s-eye view of Hangzhou. Look east to see West Lake, and then turn west to gaze at Xixi Wetland. Head over to Longjing Village for a delicious lunch and a soothing sip of Longjing tea, a special, pan-roasted type of green tea. After you’re well rested, take a stroll through the Longjing Tea Plantations to arrive at Zhenji Temple. Marvel at the thousand-year-old gingko tree at the front of the temple which is famous for its vibrant yellow leaves that fall in mid-November. Cap off the hike with a view of the complicated waterscape of Nine Streams and Eighteen Gullies.
