Why take this tour?

A hardcore 8-hour in-depth Hangzhou mountains hiking tour that takes you deep into Hangzhou’s scenery and history at the same time. Likely the densest Hangzhou hiking and culture tour available. Hike the Southern Song Dynasty ‘Nan Song’ relic route, tracing a path from the Nan Song bazaar markets of Hefang Street to the Chu Palace ruins on Mount Fenghuang – from the commoner’s streets to the crumbled seat of the ancient Imperial government. The great outdoors and a see-and-feel history lesson combined. 1. Trace a path through a thousand years of Hangzhou history - get to know Hangzhou and Jiangnan culture through hiking and mountain climbing. 2. This West Lake trail is a favorite route of the locals. Experience weekend leisure life in the style of your average live-in citizen. 3. A local as your guide, head deep into the West Lake mountains and deep into Hangzhou’s history. Explore a string of millennial relic ruins that tell a story of kings and war.

About operator:

Bringing life to culture, and culture to life! For more than three years our focus has been to provide the most authentic in cultural experiences while staying away from the common activities and attractions. We believe that culture is best absorbed through experience: those who visit with us become monks for a week, craft items of tradition with their own hands, and immerse themselves in environments rich with Chinese cultural heritage. Every month the team delivers unique opportunities - doorways to discover the crafts that artisans of this ancient land have been perfecting for thousands of years; windows to the spirit they embody. In addition to monthly events TA also organizes custom private experiences for visitors of all types, from the solo traveller to families and business partners.
