At about 8:30 am your English-speaking guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel, and you will go directly to the Xishuiyu Great Wall. In 1974 China built the Xishuiyu Reservoir. When the water level rises, some low-lying sections of the Wall gets submerged underwater. Seen from the reservoir dam, this stately sunken Wall is still visible under the water's smooth and glimmering surface. It is here where you will begin your bike ride. We'll let you start biking in a little-traffic country road surrounded by trees (the Great Wall itself here is not suitable for biking). You'll enjoy the breathtaking views when you ride through this road for about half of the way, and when you reach the Huanghuacheng Great Wall, you'll start seeing the Great Wall in front of you laying down the mountains. The bike ride should last for about two hours.
After that, we'll pick you up and drive for about 20 minutes to have a gourmet Chinese country-style lunch at our approved Ancient Pass Restaurant.
Following lunch, we'll start the hiking portion of your tour by scaling up to the Huanghuacheng Great Wall. At the Huanghuacheng Great Wall, Because the lake breaks this section of the Great Wall into three segments naturally, its uniqueness might surprise you. The Huanghuacheng Reservoir lies here, shaped like a curved moon. From the place called Zhuangdaokou and Zhenluguan, you will walk up to the Great Wall and on the Wall for 2 hours till we see the lake. From the Wall, the lake seems quiet but huge. You will feel how amazing the views are.
You will arrive at your Beijing hotel at approximately 5 pm.
