Black Dragon Pools

IMG_0272
Today we hiked through a national park area, through steep canyons up to the Black Dragon Pools. It was beautiful, lush green contrasting with the grey rock pools and dark water. A splash of colour was also provided by the yellow rubber boats and inflatable toys, however, it did detract from some of the natural beauty.

After checking out the Black Dragon pools, we had a local guide take us off the trail and out of the canyon which lead us further into the wilderness, over streams and through forests. It was a stunning walk and a nice change of pace from the wall. Along the way we came across, beautiful rock formations, one in particular known as the Hole to Heaven. We walked through a little local village and even got to meet some local 4 legged friends. We ended our hike at the highest waterfall in Beijing province.
