TRIP OVERVIEW:

This is our most-popular 2-day excursion! Day 1 is fairly-easy hiking, getting our “hiking legs” limbered up. We will follow the Great Wall through the countryside, where we will have the chance to see villagers going about their day-to-day tasks. Day 2 will be more ambitious - we will hike two great sections: Jinshanling section of the Great Wall and Wofushan Section of the Great Wall. We will first hike along an original section of the Jinshanling Section of the Great Wall which follows the crest of the rocky terrain. Some parts of the Wall are steep and will require effort. Some parts are somewhat broken-down, punished by the weather after countless years, and will require careful maneuvering as we pass by. The Wohushan Section of the Great Wall is simply marvelous, with protected watch towers and preserved vantage points. In short, the second day will offer some fantastic views, great for pictures, and not seen from the commonly-visited tourist locations!

DAY-BY-DAY DETAILED ITINERARY:
(B=breakfast, L=lunch, D=dinner)
 
Day 1 Beijing-Gubeikou-Jinshanling (LD; 10 km; 5 hrs)
After an early pick-up from your hotel, we will drive directly to the Gubeikou Section of the Great Wall, where our 2-day adventure will begin. The Great Wall was built to protect China from attacks from the north, but it was here, at the Gubeikou Pass, in 1541, that the Mongols, under the leadership of Altan Khan broke through, and set the suburbs of Beijing on fire. Then, inexplicably, he suddenly took his armies north again, sparing Beijing. If the weather is clear, we will be able to see our ultimate destination, the Wangjing Tower in the Simatai Section, many kilometers away. Today’s hike will take us to a military area along the Wall, which we must bypass. We will take a pleasant diversion through a friendly village, and then hike directly to the Jinshanling section of the Wall, where we will stop for the night. We will stay in a local hotel near the Wall or, if the weather is nice, we will camp at the bottom of the Great Wall!

Day 2 Jinshanling Great wall and Wohushan Great Wall (BL; 8 km; 5 hrs)
If we sleep on the Wall, we will be up before sunrise to catch the sun throwing soft morning light onto the Wall itself, great for pictures! After breakfast, we will continue to hike eastward from Jinshanling toward the Simatai section of the Wall. Our hiking on Jinshanling stops at Wuyan tower where we could enjoy a good view of Simatai Great Wall and overlook the surrounding. Then we will down to meet our driver in the parking lot at the bottom of Jinshanling. Lunch in a local restaurant.
Then we will take a short drive to Wohushan section of the Great Wall for another 2 hours hiking.  Wohushan (Crouching Tiger Mountain) Great Wall straddles on the rocky mountains of Wohushan— so named because two distinct peaks resemble a pair of tigers, one looks up and the other bends down. The Wall winds through Wohu Shan for 13.6 kilometer; along the way, 20 towers decked its spine. Our hike will cover part of them. This is the Wall which is not seen by tourists! There will be many opportunities to take pictures of this authentic “Wild Wall” before we transfer back to Beijing.

To ensure all our groups have more time on the wall and shorten the travel time on road, we will go by a new high way which was open to traffic on Sept. 28th(saving about 1 hour one way, now it only takes about 1.5 hour from the city to Simatai Great Wall one way.).The tour cost was adjusted accordingly.
