take bus No. 919 (Da Zha Kuai Che) to Yanqing Nan Cai Yuan stop, and then take a bus No. 920 Huan (Loop Line) to Longqing Gorge.

it takes about 20 minutes from Tiananmen square to Deshengmen by taxi, and the taxi fare is around CNY 25.

is there is a lot of foreigners too, taking from downtown to longqing george? or mostly locals? by taxi can we get easily from there?

Hi Mika,
many foreigners go to Longqing Gorge.
you can get a taxi, but it is very expensive. i suggest you to take public buses.

is there is available shops and restaurant inside the longqing george? or better to bring drinks and snacks with us, please advise... thanks

hi,

were planning to take a trip to both Badaling and Longqing Gorge by bus
from beijing downtown, which place is best to go first?

Hi Cherryl,
Longqing Gorge is much farther than Badaling, so i think you can go to Longqing Gorge first.
however, usually you need to spend a whole day for each of them, so you can go the Longqing Gorge in the first day and then Badaling in the second day.

Hi,

My friends and I would like to go bungee jumping this Saturday (November 5). I spoke to someone on the phone who said it might not be open but this website says the park is open until the 15th. Will we be able to bungee jump? Thanks!

Yeah, it Longqing gorge will be open until Nov. 15 yearly.

HI,

I will be staying hotel near Tiananmen east subway. Could you tell me Step by Step how to go to Longqingxia from my hotel?

What time should I set off to depart to avoid the crowd.

What time should I leave Longqingxia to avoid missing the buses. Thanks.

Kindly email me back @ mypellia@gmail.com. thanks

Susan :10/10/2011 7:39:08 PM

hi calvin,
you can either walk or take the subway line 1 to Tiananmen West to take bus No. 5 to Deshengmen station. take bus No. 919 to Yanqing Nancaiyuan Stop, and transfer to bus No. 875 to Longqingxia. Reverse the trip when getting back.
the last bus from Yanqing back to Deshengmen departs at around 18:30, and the travel time from Longqingxia to Yanqing Nancaiyuan stop is about 1 hour, so you have to leave Longqingxia before 17:30.
Longqingxia is a little bit far from Beijing city, so you'd better depart as early as possible in the morning. the earliest bus No. 919 departs at 06:00.

Can someone tell me of a reasonably cheap hotel, hostel near longqing lake? Thanks.

i know one named Beijing Happy Holiday Hotel, which is quite near Longqingxia.
the price is around CNY 300- 400.

Hie ! May I check the taxi ride from Beijing to LongJing, as stated from previous post, from 200 - 400. Is this one way or to and fro ? The Tourist Bus from Tiananmen to Longjing, is the price per adult ? Are there any discounts for children ? Thanks !

hi Joy,
the taxi fare is one way.
and the price for the tourist bus is per adult. usually there is a discount for Children under 1.2 meters, but i'm not sure about the exact rate.

Is it recommended to stay the night Longqing Gorge... can you see everything in one day? Can you even stay

hi Austin,
you can finish all the attractions in one day and don't need to stay there.

Hi, me and my 8 other friends plan to visit badaling great wall, ming tomb, longqing gorge, guyaju and kangxi grassland. Could you please suggest a best way to visit all destinations within 2 days? are there any private tour that caters for these destinations? How much would it be? we would like to stay a night in kangxi grassland, in the yurts.

regards,
Wei-Han

Hi.
We're styaing in Beijing and we thought to take a trip to both Badaling and Longqing Gorge.
Is it possible to finish them both in the same day?
What's the best way to get to Longqing Gorge from Badaling? How much would a taxi cost?
Thanks! :)

It is possible to visit Badaling and Longqing Gorge on the same day. From Badaling, you can take bus no. 919 to Yanqing, transfer to bus no. 920 (loop-line) to Longqing Gorge. It takes about 30-40 minutes. It's hard to take a taxi at Badaling Great Wall, since it is far away from the urban area.

Do the bungee jumping, abseiling and boat tours take place in April?
Can anyone provide contact details or websites of companies that offer these?
What is the slideway?

there are no direct tourist bus from Badaling to Longqingxia. you can take the bus No. 919 to Yanqing Bus station, then take bus No. 920.
1. it is not far from the great wall entrance to the bus stand. CNY 12 for air-conditioning bus, CNY 7 for ordinary bus.
2. it is also easy to find the entrance of Longqingxia from the bus stop, don't worry. the bus fare for Bus No. 902 is only CNY 2.
2. about 1 hour.

Hi
