We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Day By Day Itinerary
Day 01
Hike from Jinshanling Great Wall and Camping on Gubeikou Great Wall

Pick up from your hotel in Beijing around 10:30am. and head to Jinshaling Great Wall. The 150-km drive takes about 2 and half hours. Arriving at Jinshanling Great Wall, you will be arranged to have Chinese lunch. After lunch, hike up on the west section of Jinshanling Great Wall. This hiking tour takes about 3-4 hour for about 5 km ( 15 watchtowers ). This section of the Great Wall is wild, ruined, preserved, original and somewhere half restored with great photogenic opportunities. We have to get off the wall at Kylin Tower, and cannot hike to Simatai Section direction due to the temporary closure of Simatai Great Wall. 

Unrestored Jinshanling Great Wall

At the end of the hike on Jinshanling Great Wall, continue to drive to Gubeikou Village where you will have Chinese dinner at a local villager's farmhouse. After dinner and it is getting dark,  then walk up on to one of the towers on the wall for overnight camping in a tent. We offer tents, mats, sleeping bags and fashlights. No electricity and no plumbing. Take all your necessities on to the wall for next morning's hike since we start to walk on Gubeikou Great Wall directly from where you are camping.

Day 02
Gubeikou Hike and Hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall

Wake up to catch the sunrise ( if fine weather ). Cooking is forbidden on the wall. You will have simple western breakfast prepared by us ( bread,egg...).  After simple breakfast, have  one hour short hike on the unrestored  Gubeikou Great Wall.

The main part of the Gubeikou Wall was first built in the Ming Dynasty 1368, and composed of two main sections - Panlongshan Great Wall (The Coiled Dragon Mountain Great Wall) and Wohushan Great Wall(The Crouching Tiger Mountain Great Wall). You are arranged to hike Panlongshan Great Wall, nicknamed after the name of the mountain on which it lies - Panlongshan Mountain. Panlongshan Great Wall is mostly unrestored, oroginal, less tourist and one of the most beautuful sections of the Wall around Beijing.

Leaving Gubeikou Village around 8:30am and continue to drive 120km and get to the starting point at Jiankou Great Wall. We will start to hike eastward around 10:30 from the unrestored Jiankou Great Wall to the restored Mutianyu Great Wall.

Mutianyu Great Wall

For the first hour, we will clamber up the mountain and get to the Zhengbei Tower on the wall atop the mountain ridge. Starting from Zhengbeilou Tower, then walk eastward ups and downs on the rugged wall along the mountain ridges past the wild and crumbling towers at Jiankou, and reach the restored and maginificent Mutianyu Great Wall. The hike takes about 4-5 hours for 8km trekking.

One hour scale up a steep hill to reach the wall, 2 hour hike along the unrestored section starting from Zhengbeilou Tower at Jiankou (Not advisable to scramble the section between the Upward Flying Eagle Tower and Zhengbeilou Tower ) and 1-1.5 hour walk along restored section at Mutianyu (many other tourists). You may get down from the wall at Mutianyu on foot ( half hour walking down ) or take a cable car or toboggan. Cable car and toboggan are optional.

Jiankou Great Wall is the greatest and most photogenic section of the Great Wall around Beijing. It is wild and totally unrestored. The tumbledown and crumbling brickwork snakes along a narrow mountain ridge. The Mutianyu Great Wall was built in 1404. The fortifications and the Great Wall here are featured by many watchtowers on overlapping mountain ranges. The wall, built with slabs of stone, is crenellated on both sides with bricks. The wall provided better protection and ward off attacks with Jiankou in the west and Gubeikou in the east.

Jiankou Great Wall

After the hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall, we will have a late Chinese lunch at a local restaurant before returning your downtown hotel in Beijing.
