China tours to visit earthquake sites

Travellers on adventure tours in China will soon have the option to visit sites that were affected by the devastating earthquake that hit the country in May last year.

The tours in Beichuan county, the area most severely affected by the earthquake in Sichuan province, are expected to begin before the end of March, a local official told China Daily.

Chen Wen, an information officer in the city of Mianyang, said demand for the tours was shown during this year’s Spring Festival, during which some 200,000 people visited Beichuan.

Visitors will be taken to vantage points that offer a view of the damage caused by the earthquake, including the local high school and the village of Jina Qiang.

Tourists will also be able to take boat trips on the ‘quake lakes’ that were formed when rivers were blocked by landslides during the earthquake, causing a build-up of water.

The earthquake that hit Sichuan province last year was so severe that tremors were felt in Shanghai and Beijing, both more than 1,500km away.

Trips around the affected areas will be among many unusual tours that travellers can take in Asia, Oceania and elsewhere, which offer a memorable way of exploring one’s holiday destination.
