This program is an incredible way to get the best out of your short time in China. In just 4 days you will get to go on the 4 most popular Great Wall hikes. We’ll start out with the trek from Jinshanling to West Simatai, a hike that combines classically restored Great Wall along with its natural and unrestored state. Tonight you’re in for a real treat, as you’ll get to camp inside one of the Great Wall’s watchtowers! Next we’ll hike at Jiankou, the most misterious section of the Great Wall followed by another day's hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu.
Throughout the four-day itinerary, we will send our local guides who are the local residents at the Great Wall. They know the best of the Wall and can guide you with translation apps installed on their phone. This is a great opportunity for you to interact with local Chinese people while saving $$ for this 4-day unforgettable expedition.
" We had an amazing and incredibly memorable time at the Great Wall. Our local host was so kind and accommodating, the food was wonderful, and our driver was friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for this experience. I will highly recommend this company to friends and family.." S. Walker, experienced Nov., 2019.
We designed this new program to offer our guests a full-range day by day hiking and one or two nights of camping by using our professional local teams and guides at the Great Wall rather than using an English-speaking guide. By that, this 4-day trek is generally $100 or more cheaper than other 4-day programs. Find out more by clicking the button below.
Camping on the Wild Wall, which is not known to outsiders but is the most heartwarming and fascinating, is the embodiment of a dream.

The tour is very interesting though at times somewhat challenging, due to the state of some parts of the wall. The tour can be done by young people with an good physical condition. We had a nice little group of likeminded people so that was great. The wall itself is beautiful and thankfully not overrun by tourists. Our meals were also delicious. All in all this trip was excellent value for money. Thank you very much

Jiankou is the part where the shape of the mountain looks like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock. It is known for its ruggedness and wild beauty, and you will be in awe of the marvelous views it affords. As soon as we reach Jiankou we will see a deserted watchtower that gives you a panoramic view of the entire valley. In the early morning the view is priceless with its morning fog. This is the pinnacle of exotic Great Wall scenery.
Once we descend from the Great Wall we will spend the night at a farmer’s inn.

From Jiankou we will cross over onto Mutianyu, a section of the Wall that has been largely restored. Although it has gotten a face-lift, it avoids the army of tourists that plague Badaling. Mutianyu offers some breathtaking views of the valley and wall below, and if you look to your right you’ll see a large sign engraved in the side of the mountain encouraging you to “Cherish the teachings of Chairman Mao.” Mutianyu has also become popular for visiting foreign leaders and celebrities.
