Hiking Tour.


This section of the Wall was constructed during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). It has many parts built on sheer cliffs or on steep mountain slopes. It connects to Mutianyu in the east and joins Huanghuacheng in the west. The Great Wall served as a link in promoting harmonious relationships among the different nationalities in the whole country.
Note: This tour requires you to be in excellent condition as the hiking is strenuous.

Itinerary

Note: This tour requires you to be in excellent condition as the hiking is strenuous.
Pick up from your Beijing hotel (Between 8:00 and 9:00 AM).
For the adventurous, there are many famous sections of the Jiankou Great Wall such as:
'The Nine-Eye Tower' was an important command post during the ancient wars. It has three layers and there are nine holes which look like nine eyes on each side.
'The Beijing Knot' is the meeting point for three walls coming from different directions.
'The Sky Stair' is a precipitous stair whose angle of elevation is 70 to 80 degrees.
'The Eagle Flies Facing Upward' is a watch tower built on the lofty peaks. It is so dangerous that even eagles have to fly facing upward to reach the top.
'Zhengbei Tower' is the right place to appreciate the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset.
Lunch at a local restaurant.
Drive back to the city for a nice foot massage.
Return back to your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent guide....RECOMMENDED! Sunny went above and beyond to make our tour just what we wanted. Just before our tour date, we had to suddenly adjust our plan as President Trump was visiting the Great Wall causing a closure. Sunny contacted me immediately with options, and I think we ended up with an even better tour than the original plan. The Great Wall is amazing and walking it is definitely the best way to enjoy it. We learned a lot from Sunny as well...knowledgable on history and culture.
