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 (saving about 1 hour one way, now it only takes about 1.5 hour by car from the city to Simatai Great Wall one way.).The tour cost was adjusted accordingly.  

   What makes our hikes different from the others ?

  • Your English-speaking guide stays with you the entire trip (including the hiking).
  • Our guides carry 2-way radios (and a cell phone) in case of emergencies.
  • We use safe, reliable, government-licensed vehicles (e.g. mini-vans), not a dubiously-maintained family car or taxi.
  • We use professional drivers, not a “friend” making some extra money.
  • We save time by taking the direct routes, even if there are charges (rather than navigating back roads trying to avoid tolls).
  • With us, there are NO “forced shopping” stops !
  • There are NO hidden costs ! (e.g. fuel surcharge)
  • We are proud of our Wall. We want YOU to become an ambassador of Great Wall hiking too!
  • We not only want our customers to return – we want them to tell their friends!

HIGHLIGHTS :

  • 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!
  • Unlike most of our trips which are private tours, this trip is a competitively-priced “group” excursion, which leaves daily, every day, as long as there are 2 or more people ( but with a maximum of 6, so it does not become bogged down or unwieldy  ) ! This tour could also be made private if requested.

TRIP OVERVIEW:
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!

      

DETAILED ITINERARY:
Our minivan will pick you up from you hotel in the early morning, and we will drive directly to Jinshanling

Upon arrival, starting from the bottom of Jinshanlingi Great Wall, 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. (about 2.5-3 hours)

After lunch, enjoy a good time in Gubei Water Town, Gubeikou Water Town is a resort located in north Beijing, spread out across an area that includes the Simatai Great Wall and Gubei Water Town. With great lodging and meeting facilities, it is perfect for company conference and teambuilding activities. We could arrange hiking the Great Wall, treasure hunting around the water town, experience traditional Chinese culture-learn tie-dyekite-painting, etc. In the late afternoon, do the hike on Simatai section where we will appreciate the beaury of the Great Wall sunset!!

Back to the city.

The Jinshanling Great Wall  is known for its well-maintained watch towers, quite close together.

The Simatai Great Wall is spectacular, one of the most-challenging hiking sections, running right along the crest of the steep cliffs.  When you have hiked the two of them, you will be hooked!
