Overview
This is the most classic hiking route on the Great Wall, taking about 5 hours to complete a distance of 10 km (6 miles) from Jiankou section to Mutianyu section. Challenge the most precipitous Jiankou section of the Great Wall, wild, weathered and primitive. Photographers and hikers love this section, which is also the iconic image of the Great Wall as you can see in many photo albums. Mutianyu section of the Great Wall boasts the most beautiful scenery of all the sections. It is restored and tourist-friendly. Hiking the whole route is like traveling through time from primitive to modern, presenting three phases of the Great Wall with striking contrast from wild, half-repaired to totally repaired.

This was an excellent tour with a guide that knew the way. The hike up was really long but worth it to see wilder and unrestored portions of the wall. The restored portions with its Disney-esque themepark vibe was interesting to see by contrast. Getting to the wall like this is

We are so glad to know that you had an excellent time with our one-day Great Wall hiking tour! This breathtaking Jiankou section is totally unrestored, you have seen the most original look of the Great Wall. It's the first time to hear from the guest saying that the Great Wall is similar to Disney-esque themepark vibe. How imaginative you are and thanks for your great feedback! Hope for your next tour with us!

Great tour, you get to experience the Great Wall of China without tourists. The Wild Wall is simply incredible. Can also recommend the guide, Bob Chen, he was very knowledgeable and it made the hike up smooth with all his stories and facts about China.

BEST HIKE EVER!! Highly recommend for anyone looking to hike for a day at the Great Wall. This tour allows you to see the untouched portions of the wall where trees and plants were covering the remains of the wall. This is an unforgettable and unique way to see the Great Wall.

We are so glad to hear that you had a wonderful time in our Jiankou Great Wall Hiking tour with your guide Bob. Due to the Jiankou section has not been developed yet, it's original, wild and few people to visit. Also it's a little dangerous and steep, but how brave you are to challenge this section! Bob is experienced at hiking, and he loves to take some nice photos for the guests on this beautiful Great Wall views. Hope you have some best memories in Beijing. Looking forward to your next booking!
