Expect an early start for this full-day Great Wall hiking tour. Your knowledgeable guide will greet you at your central Beijing hotel for the 2-hour journey to Jiankou, where your Great Wall hike begins.
The twists and turns of this unrestored and less-visited stretch of wall make it perfect for photographers. As it winds along sheer mountain ridges, the wall offers new panoramas at every corner, while its ruins and imperfections are shockingly atmospheric.
You’ll spend about five or six hours hiking this route, which is considered the most precipitous and beautiful stretch of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall, to Mutianyu. Along the way, your private guide explains the long history of the wall’s construction. If you enjoy a mild physical challenge combined with a cultural experience, this is the tour for you.
• Explore an unrestored, unretouched section of the Great Wall, starting at Jiankou • Finish at Mutianyu, one of the best-known sections of the Great Wall • Learn how the Great Wall was built over the centuries from your private guide • Hike includes entrance fees, lunch, and hotel pickup and drop-off
