This brand new program takes you to the best hiking routes the Great Wall has, including popular standbys like Jiankou-Mutianyu, and Jinshanling-Siamtai. However, what this tour offers that others don't is an opportunity to sleep over on the Great Wall itself! In addition, you'll get to discover Taipaingzhai, an unrestored and beautiful example of Great Wall architecture that is relatively unknown to both domestic and foreign tourists alike. Like all of our tours you'll get your own English-speaking guide and driver, which will give you the opportunity to travel worry-free and enjoy all that the Great Wall has to offer.
Camping on the Wild Wall, which is not known to outsiders but is the most heartwarming and fascinating, is the embodiment of a dream.

Just wanted to let you know that my tour was exactly what I wanted and more!
It exceeded my expectations!
We barely saw any other people on the " wild section" of the wall, and it was a nice mix of wild and restored wall, with the majority being wild.
The hiking was great!

Our hike will start from Jiankou. 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.

This is the classic Great Wall that hikers are very thrilled about. wall enthusiasts have done. The Wall runs from deteriorated wild state to the restored in the end to allow hikers to compare the differences between the two wall status.
The Jinshanling Great Wall has not been repaired since 1570. It is a remote and relatively isolated section of the Great Wall. If you are looking for breathtaking views with a relatively peaceful walk, then the Second Valley of Jinshanling can't be better, so we hope that you remembered to bring your camera!

Gubeikou is mostly Wild Wall. It was first built during the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-557) and rebuilt in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Stretching for about 25 miles (40 kilometers), there are 172 watchtowers, 14 beacon towers, 16 passes, 3 water passes, 3 barbarians, and 6 fortresses along it.
In 1933, Chinese army fought against Japanese invasion troops at Gubeikou. In the four-month-long battles, over 5,000 Japanese soldiers were killed while 9,000 Chinese soldiers died. You can see that Gubeikou is not merely a relic but it remained as a battlefield in modern world.

Today we'll start with Peace Fort (Taipingzhai) that starts from Banlagang Mountain in the east and arriving at Guafu Tower (Widow Tower) in the west. There are six watch towers, one battlement, and one shortcut leading to the wall.
Waking westward, we will get to the steepest segment of this section, the Huangya Sky Ladder. Stretching to the top of the ridge, this long stairway seemingly leads to the sky. Climbing over the ladder, we will reach the primitive Great Wall built in the Northern Qi Dynasty, marking the end of the Huangyaguan section.
We will drive to Beijing in the afternoon to end this 4-day adventure.
