Jiankou Great Wall

 Jiankou Great Wall, Located in the district of Huairou and 80 kilometres north-east of Beijing, is completely in its original state, dating from the Ming period (late 14th century). Exploring these more authentic fragments of the wall is a great experience, however, it could be dangerous, as a lot of steep steps are crumbling. Although Jiankou is seldon know by the tourists to Beijing, it is very famous in local hikers and  photographers interesting in Great Wall.

     Many people learn about the Jiankou from illustrated books about the Great Wall. One scene is known as "Ying Fei Dao Yang" (the eagles have to fly upwards over a high tower), so named because a watchtower was erected on the highest peak, and eagles/hawks often perched on it. Another one is "Heavenly Ladder" - a flight of steps ascending almost vertically. These steps are so narrow that only one person can climb up at a time. The massive and well preserved watchtower is the best spot for taking photos and watching the sunrise. At the foot of the wall a couple of quiet and peaceful villages lie in the valley.

What Our Clients Say

Two of us enjoyed a truly wonderful tour of Guilin, Yangshuo and surrounding countryside.    Many thanks to CnAdventures for providing very helpful assistance and our guide, David, who was really terrific, both accommodating and informative.  The trip provided a great deal of variety as we hiked, biked and rafted through some of the most gorgeous countryside I have ever seen.  An unplanned side trip to the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terrace was a most worthwhile addition to our itinerary.  Another nice aspect to the trip was the opportunity to sample some excellent local food along the way--stuffed snails and sticky rice cooked in bamboo were a couple of highlights along with rice wine and osmanthus tea.
