Already been river trekking and looking for a new destination? We have one for you.
This weekend is all about taking fun in the water to the next level – hiking, swimming, and rappelling in awesome rivers, down …and up… waterfalls and rocks, and exploring one of the coolest canyons this part of China has to offer.
What is extreme river hiking?
On this trip we are not just walking in a river. We take it up a notch. Ultimate river hiking is when two instructors coordinate to set up equipment – ropes and other gear and use mountaineering technology (instruction provided during the trek) to help us move up the river. In total the challenge will take about 6 hours.

What is the minimum age for this trip? Can kids join?
18 – 65 , depending on fitness level and experience. This trip is not suitable for children.
Ideally, previous experience with river hiking or similar activities, but not absolutely necessary, the instructors will be helping everyone along the way.
Daily physical fitness training (exercise in the gym etc) starting 15 days prior to the trip is necessary.
Difficulty levels are highly subjective. We categorize the water trek as medium to difficult and the land hike as easy . Want to join but not sure if the level is right for you? Just ask 🙂
