Route 1: Two Day Outdoor Adventure Tour
Bamen Greenways -- Seven Fairy Mountain
The wilderness of Hainan is full of exciting adventures for you to enjoy. Hike up waterfalls, go parasailing through the clouds, go whitewater rafting through the jungle, and challenge yourself to surpass your goals as you hike to the summit of every single mountain.
Day 1: Bamen Greenways 文昌八门湾绿
The Bamen Greenways, a network of biking and hiking trails, pass through four towns: Wencheng, Dongge, Wenjiao and Dongjiao. The greenways encompass a total of 45 km of paths, and another 9 km of side routes. The trails pass over mangrove forests on boardwalks, through small local villages, coconut groves, and along riverbanks. There are many convenient tourist stations set up along the paths to provide information, snacks, shelter, rest areas, and more. The Bamen Greenways are a great place for a nature hike or bike ride in a gorgeous natural setting.
Day 2: Seven Fairy Mountain, Baoting 保亭七仙岭
Seven Fairy Mountain, located in Baoting, offers a fairly, but not extremely, challenging hike. Hikers can take a tram to the trail entrance, and back down again. The trail is paved with steps, and there are occasional rest pointswhere beverages and snack are sometimes available.
The trail parallels a stream, and small waterfalls and pools can be seen and even waded in, providing a cool and refreshing diversion. The surroundings are full of life, from the lush rainforest, to the birds, insects, and small animals you will be able to spot as you climb. The last 200 meters to the peak is more difficult, involving a vertical climb which can be accomplished by pulling yourself up ladders and chains which have been secured to the rock face.
Even if you decline to climb this section, the rest of the hike is well worth the trip. After the climb, why not soak away any aches and pains in the many local hot springs?
