This easy walk traces a riverside path, from a tiny 12 family village (about 60 people), with the aid of stepping stones, past relics of tourist free "forgotten" parts of the Great Wall that are now partly submerged. Suddenly the view changes from the wild quietness, to a magnificent lake – Little West Lake and a feeling of rediscovering 'civilization'.</p> <p>This FCGroup popular fun walk is off the tourist map and (like all FCGroup events) is suitable for both foreigners and even the most local of local Chinese, We did this trip in July 2009, repeated it in 2011 and by popular request are repeating again this year. It combines a mixture of clambering over rocks, splashing through pools and stopping for rests in the shade of some beautiful trees and a DIY brunch picnic. You will get your feet wet! This trip is not suitable for pregnant ladies but if my "sit in front of a computer all day" physical shape is okay for this trip then so is yours.</p> <p>RSVP Options:</p> <p>• Option 1: 300RMB pre-pay via Yoopay.</p> <p>• Option 2: 350RMB RSVP on-line before Friday 25 May and pay on the day prior to boarding the bus.</p> <p>• Option 3: 350RMB by email to info@fcgroup.org before Friday 25 May and pay on the day prior to boarding the bus.</p> <p>NB: Registration for this event is only valid if it includes your name and a contact mobile phone number.</p> <p>For insurance purposes:</p> <p>Foreign nationals please provide your mobile phone number, your full name as it appears on your passport, your nationality and passport number.</p> <p>Chinese nationals please provide your mobile phone number, your name in Chinese Hanzi as it appears on your ID card and your ID Card number.</p> <p>We look forward to seeing you and anticipate having another great day in the peace and quiet of rural Beijing.</p> <p>Please do remember to register as soon as possible to ensure that there is room for you.</p> <p>Registrations are not accepted after 12:00hrs (noon) on Friday 25 May.
