What makes our hikes different from the others ?

  • Our tours are private – no delays picking up other tourists from various hotels around the city. We pick up, then go!
  • 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:

  • The hike includes BOTH a section of the Wall, which is restored. PLUS a section of the “Wild Wall” that is not restored (The “Wild Wall” section is remote, quiet, and you may not see any other tourists for the entire morning! And it is great for pictures).
  • This is a very easy hike for inexperienced hikers and a popular hike for families! Wander through a quiet village located in a picturesque valley.
  • Easy and pleasant hike on an unspoiled part of the “Wild Great Wall” with various flowers in Spring and fruit in Fall.
  • Take the toboggan down from Mutianyu Great Wall at the end of the hike and then enjoy BBQ fish .

TRIP OVERVIEW:
This is one of our families’ favorites! The hike transverses what residents call “the Wild Wall” located in Shengtangyu– not only is the hike itself picturesque, but it combines the old with the new! Hikers start with a leisurely walk round a quiet village in a picturesque valley, and hike on an unrestored part of the wall, which is not generally known by tourists, to the restored section at Mutianyu.. The hike will end with a slide down Mutianyu Great Wall on the toboggan.

This trip can be taken any time during the year, even winter, and always makes for a memorable day-trip. However, the most picturesque seasons are Spring and Fall.

DETAILED ITINERARY:
Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel and will drive you to a quiet village in a nice valley. The drive to the picturesque valley, famous for trout, is approximately 2 hours. We will take a small mountain trail beside the village right onto the wild wall. The trail on the wall is clear and easy to walk on, and not too steep. Unlike other parts of the wall, this “Wild Wall” trail is dotted by trees and bushes on and off the Wall making the view in Spring splendid with countless flowers, cooler in Summer and full of color and wild fruits in Fall. Panoramic views greet you along the entire trail of the “Wild Wall” and the restored wall at Mutianyu. The hike along the wall will take about 2 hours, and it is unlikely you will meet any other tourists along the way until we arrive at the sign ”Unrestored Great Wall, No pass” at Mutianyu Great Wall, where other tourists will stop and take the same way down the Wall. What a change, emerging from the peaceful, authentic section of the Wall, so full of history, onto the restored portion of the Wall at Mutianyu, full of tourists! You can hike down to the parking lot, or you can also take the table car or toboggan down for fun (the tickets of the table car or toboggan are not included in the price)!!! Your driver will meet you there, and will take you to a nice restaurant for a delicious BBQ fish lunch.

Transfer you back to the hotel in the city, where the drive will be approximately 2 hours. The end of the leisure hike.
