What makes our hikes different from the others ?

  • This is THE hike for first-time Great Wall hikers !!!
  • This is the location where most people fall in love with the Great Wall, and hiking along it! Both sections are well-maintained, and what you will see is awesome!


This will be a long day, but if you’re up to it, one of the best! It’s designed for the person who feels cooped up all day somewhere in Beijing, and who wants to get out and away, into the fresh air, the open spaces, the natural surroundings, and who wants to do some healthy exercise as well.

If you want to see history, meet friends, get some exercise, and feel exhilarated at the end of the day, this is it!



Our minivan will pick you up anywhere within the 3rd Ring Road in the early morning, and we will drive directly to the Gubeikou Section of the Great Wall.

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 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.

The Jinshanling Great Wall is known for its well-maintained watch towers, quite close together. At lunchtime, if the day is too hot, we will have our picnic lunch inside one of the beacon towers, where it is always cool. The tour ends in the parking lot at a pre-designated time and transports everyone back to the city.
