This 2-day Great Wall program packs quite a punch! Not only do you get the classic Great Wall hike on Jinshanling, but you also get to explore little-known Gubeikou, while also getting to camp and sleep overnight in a Great Wall watchtower! Just think of it! You'll be able to witness the sunrise and sunset from the perfect vantage point. On the second day you'll get to walk Huanghuacheng-Xishuiyu which features an extremely rare trait-the Great Wall underwater!
The General of Hot Blood is a hero, and the song is a bonfire to sharpen his loyalty. Camping for a song of the mountain and river, the sword of a thousand kilos of the warrior's blade.
In those days, the brave guards camped year-round in this beacon, guarding the Great Wall and guarding Beijing in the cold wind and rain. We have camping tents and sleeping bags for you, and tonight you are a soldier guarding Beijing. Your camping is legal and safe.
We'll leave Beijing at 8 (in winter) and 9:30 (in summer). Drive 2.5 hours to Gubeikou. We'll hike from Gubeikou to Jinshanling today for 4.5 hours. Gubeikou was often the battlefield in many wars including the fight against the Japanese invasion in 1930's. Jinshanling is the section that represents the Great Wall the best. The pictures are often in public media and government offices. We'll have lunch at Jinshanling and Huanghuacheng. Camping on the Great Wall at lakeside Great Wall.
Wake up early to catch the sunrise from the Great Wall. Today we'll walk Huanghuacheng and Xishui Great Wall, the only two sections sitting by the big lakes. Fantastic views the combining the mountains and water. We'll return to Beijing after having lunch in a new restaurant at the foot of the Great Wall that serves organic food. You'll get back to your hotel by 5 pm.

My wife and I, plus an Aussie adventurer, did a 2-day hike with Great Wall Adventures at the beginning of July. The entire expedition was AMAZING! We hiked "wild" sections of the wall and saw about 20 other hikers the entire time, which we preferred as we're always looking for a more authentic, less touristy experience. For our sleeping accommodations, we hiked down from the wall (about 45 minutes) to pick up sleeping bags, sleeping pads and a tent, then hiked back up to one of the crumbling towers. My favorite moment of the entire hike might have been sitting on the corner of a crumbling watchtower, looking up at the stars, sharing a beer with my wife and two people who I had just met that day and simply being in that moment on the Great Wall. So amazing.
Overall we were extremely happy with the hiking, sleeping arrangements (in a watch tower!!), our guide, the food, the experience, everything!
