Hiking on the Great Wall of China.

Interested in hiking the Great Wall, beholding the spectacular scenery stretching below and in front of you, and incredible photo opportunities then this is a trip for YOU!!
Jinshanling and Gubeikou Great wall, are sections of the Great Wall of China located in the mountainous area of Luanping County, which is about 125 km northeast of Beijing.
A 12 km hike from the authentic fortresses of the Great Wall of Gubeikou to Jinshanling. The scenery here is stunning and the photo opportunities endless. The Jinshanling to Gubeikou Great Wall hike is quite long, As there are no steep climbs a person in normal physical condition who can hike for 6 hours will be able to enjoy this trip.


Your guide and the driver will pick you up at 7:30 AM in your hotel lobby.
The drive will be about 2 hours to the border of Hebei province.
The hike starts with the less renovated section where tourists are few and new views unfold. Just before we reach the restricted military zone we take a detour off the wall and up a hill top where you have a fantastic 360 degrees view of the Great Wall winding over the mountain ridges and onward. The hike becomes easier as you approach the Great Wall at Jinshanling.
Please bring appropriate snacks and water for this long walk.
Lunch includes authentic Chinese food.
Return to the hotel.
