Enjoy a quiet day with Beijing Amblers at several authentic ancient villages of Mentougou, western mountainous suburb of Beijing. Explore an obscure Dragon King Temple valued for its Ming Dynasty murals and four colourful clay figures of dragon kings and one river god around 600 years ago, only one of its kind in Beijing; search for the very first pagoda of Beijing hidden amidst the fruit trees on the slope of a farmland; and have an easy hike along the ancient rock horse trail to appreciate the Buddha relief sculptures and steles carved on the cliff over a thousand years ago. (fruit and vegetable picking are available at the right season)
