In part three of Walking the Beijing waterways, D J Clark takes off on a 13 km western walk that is broadly divided into two halves. The first is a pleasant stroll through the vast grounds of the Summer Palace and around the Kunming Lake. The second consists a long straight walk south along the wide Jingmi Canal which sits below the busy western edge of the city.

D J has mapped the walk here for your reference.
