About
Address: Shidu Town, Fangshan District, Beijing Telephone: 8610-61349009

Shi Du--the Ten Crossings are situated about 100 kilometers to the southwest of Beijing on the upper reaches of the Juma River. To get from Zhangfang village to Shi Du, it is necessary to cross the Juma River ten times, which is how the spot got its name.

The scenic spot is filled with sparkling streams, marshy swampland, and gushing springs. Adventure seekers can try horseback riding or bungee jumping. The earliest bungee jumping facilities in Beijing were built here, with one platform at 48 meters and another at 55 meters.

There are two styles of bungee jumping for daredevils to try: with the cord linking around the waist, and the more demanding one, which links to the ankle. Whichever they choose, those adrenalin junkies will experience a challenge to themselves, and a feeling of jumping into the arms of the nature.

Admission: Separately charged at each scenic spot
How to arrive there: Take Bus 10 (Time of Departure: 6:00--8:30a.m. on Saturday and Sunday) at Qianmen, Fuchengmen or Xuanwumen through to the site; Take Train 7095 (from Beijing Western Rail Station - to Tianyuan) at Beijing Southern Rail Station at 6:38 am through to Shidu; Take Bus 917 at Tianqiao (or Liuliqiao) through to Shidu.
