An excellent idea for people living in Beijing and willing to breath fresh air during the weekend: visit the Via Ferrata of Yanshan! Yanshan Via Ferrata or Feilada in Chinese was built in the first quarter of 2011 by a renown French company: Prisme. Conception, construction and equipment are all made in France and the local team was fully trained by French professionals. 

imagesSafety and adventure are then combined on this high quality outdoor installation and you need only 1 hour 30 min to reach Yanshan Via Ferrata from Beijing down town.  Yanshan Via Ferrata offers 3 roads, with progressive difficulty levels: the roads include stairs, wood beams, monkey bridge and Tibetan bridge. Security is ensured thanks to a continuous line of life and connected with a pair of runs equipped with a shock absorber. 

Beijing Via Ferrata Development Ltd is the company managing the installations. Owners are Chinese and speaking excellent English and French! 

As long as we know, in China, you have only three Via Ferrata developed in collaboration with PRISME:
Beijing Huairou Yanshan Via Ferrata, managed by Beijing Via Ferrata Development Ltd
– Laojunshan National Park Via Ferrata in Liming
– Nangongshan Forest Park

This is an excellent destination for team building in Beijing or to have fun with your family and friends during the weekend !
