About this place
Shidu--The Guilin of The North.
Sometimes dubbed 'the Guilin of the North,' Shidu Scenic Spot is located along the middle-upper reaches of Juma River in Fangshan District, 100 kilometers from the city.
There are 10 river bends along this segment of the river, on each of which a ferry crossing was set up. Hence the name Shidu means '10 ferry crossings' in Chinese.
Shidu is the only natural scenic spot in north China that is characterized by karst peak forests and river valley topography. There is beautiful scenery on each ferry crossing.
The varied terrain -- the winding river course, deep here and shallow there, broad here and narrow there, and the rolling hills, sometimes undulating sharply and sometimes slightly -- forms the distinctive style of the scenic spot.
Convenient amenities make Shidu a very attractive tourist resort. To date, nearly 200 films and TV programs have chosen Shidu for location shooting.
Bungee jumping is a more recent attraction of the area. It claims to be the first place to offer a bungee facility for adventurers in China.
