We will pick you up at about 9:30 am from your hotel and drive directly to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall, where we will begin our two-day hike on the wall.
Gubeikouis covered with over 140 watchtowers, all differing in size and design. You will witness how the wall twists and winds along with the steep mountain range from the wall here. That is as dramatic a view on the Great Wall as you’ll find.
The Jinshanling Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while 1/4 of it is restored, is not nearly as crowded as Badaling or Mutianyu, allowing you to have a more intimate experience with the wall. This afternoon, you'll watch the sunset while walking along the Wall.
Then we'll take you to have a gorgeous Chinese countryside style dinner served by a local housewife. Before it gets dark, we'll go up to the mountain and sleep overnight in a watchtower. We'll prepare the necessary camping facilities such as sleeping bags, so you don't have to bring anything but yourself. Here it is the sound sleeper's paradise - let the mountain valley and the Great Wall echo your snoring sound!
