About the Event
Hangzhou is one of the most beautiful cities in China and the best place for hiking all year round. The time around Qing Ming (or Tomb Sweeping Day – April 5th), is the busiest time for the farmers because the best tea is picked before the rain fall (which comes after Qing Ming). During this day trip, we will explore the beautiful scenery of the tea hills and villages, sample delicious local farmer's food, and breathe the fresh air.
The tour starts with a high-speed train ride to Hangzhou and then a drive to Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies. From there we will walk to the Dragon Well Tea Village (where the famous Hangzhou green tea is grown) and have lunch. After lunch, we will transfer to Meijiawu Village to experience the tea making process and pick fresh tea leaves and learn how to fry them, appreciate the tea ceremony, taste the local tea, and have snacks and fruit. Then we will transfer to the train station and take the train back to Shanghai.
Hiking difficulty level is easy.
