Ten Ferries

Ten Ferries Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
After visiting the site of Peking Man in the morning and having lunch along the highway, we continue southwest to Ten Ferries the name for the beautiful gorge of the Juma River between Zhangfang and the town of Shidu, which is at the end of the gorge. Ten Ferries scenic area refer to the upper and middle drainage of the Juma River in Fangshan District .

Shidu means Ten Ferries, or Ten Crossings. The name derives from the fact that before the new road and bridges were built, travelers had to cross the river ten times as they journeyed through the gorge between Zhangfang and Shidu. We had no idea that there was such a beautiful place so near Beijing.

Features
Among the 10 ferries, the sixth ferry is particularly known for its bizarre rocks, clear water, and deep pond. Here was believed to be the battlefield where Mu Guiying, a legendary Chinese ancient female marshal, and her brave army defeat the invaders of the Liao Empire. The famous Sanqing Cave, known for its bizarreness, danger and tranquility, is also around here. Shisdu is often dubbed as Guilin(a place in south china which is famous for its karst landscape) in north China for perhaps it is the only scenic location in the north that features Karst land terrain and formation. Convenient location and amenities make Shidu a very hot holiday resort in suburb Beijing.

Traffic:

There are buses to Shidu both at the Tianqiao and Liuliqiao bus stations, but the best option is to take a train at the Yongdingmen Railway Station. Normally a single day will be enough for the whole excursion.
