After a beautiful bike ride in the West of Beijing, visit this 500+ year old village which was founded during the Ming dynasty. For an affordable group price you can have an inclusive private bike ride in the countryside and tour of this quaint village. The locals have converted many of their homes to accommodate visitors.
We enjoyed a delicious meal in the front courtyard of a family's home and then wandered through the ancient village. Hike up to the temple and look-out point to see this village in the midst of the mountains from every perspective.
Cuandixia is three hours away from the center of Beijing, so it is only accessible by car.
