  • 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.

TRIP OVERVIEW:
  This excursion is shorter and easier than our 5-day tour, but still covers the best areas of the Great Wall near Beijing. If you have limited time, but still want to enjoy a Great Wall Adventure, this trip is for you!
For those who have not yet hiked on the Wild Wall, the section of the Great Wall at Wohushan, from Jinshanling to Guibeikou  is absolutely the best choice! We will also hike the section of the Great Wall from Jiankou to Mutianyu, a sacred and picturesque area not visited by regular tourists at all!
Because we will visit some of the most-picturesque portions of the Wall, bring your camera!

DAY-BY-DAY DETAILED ITINERARY:
(B=breakfast, L=lunch, D=dinner)
 
Day 1 Gubeikou-Jinshanling (LD; 10 km, 5 hrs)

After an early pick-up from your hotel, we will transfer directly by safe van to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall, where our 3-day hiking adventure will begin. The panoramic view is wonderful – partway along the hike, if the weather is clear, we will be able to see all the way to the Miyun reservoir and the Wangjing Tower in the Simatai Section. Along the way, we pass a military area where hiking on that area of the Wall is prohibited, you we will bypass this area by walking first to an interesting village nearby, and then rejoining the Wall in the Jinshanling section further on. For our first night, we will either camp in one of the watch towers in the Jinshanling Section, or will stay in a simple but clean courtyard hotel at the bottom of the Wall or camp on the Great Wall.
 
Day 2 Jinshanling Great wall and Wohushan Great Wall, Jiankou Great Wall (BLD; 8 km; 5 hrs)
If we camp overnight 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!  From here we will transfer to Jiankou section of the Wall, where we will enjoy the hospitality of a local family, staying in their guesthouse for our final night (each room with two-beds and private washroom).
 
Day 3 Jiankou-Mutianyu (BL; 10 km, 4-5 hrs)
Today is special! We will spend the day on the Jiankou section of the Wall, recognized as one of most beautiful parts of the “Wild Wall” near Beijing, and much-loved by photographers. Not visited often by “typical” tourists, this section is really rough and broken. Although we will have to be careful walking on it, the opportunity for pictures in this section is unequalled! With memories (and memory cards) full of pictures, we will then have a late lunch at a restaurant near Mutianyu, known for its delicious fish. After enjoying a leisurely lunch, we will start our drive back to Beijing. The comfortable ride in the late afternoon sun will allow us to reflect on, and cherish, various highlights we experienced during our unique adventure of the last 3 days.
End of Tour.
