Welcome to the Great Wall Adventure Club!
This is your card.
This is your Great Wall Adventure Club
membership card. This card will also
give you savings on accommodation, entertainment, city tours and
more. Please contact us for details!
As a Club member, we believe you'll actively preserve the Great Wall, the world heritage during your hiking.
We thank you for protecting our environment!
What to bring with?
First, bring the remaining balance due at
boarding. Exact change, please!
Second, bring some more cash, but no credit
card or passport, or any important items. You may bring a photocopy of
your passport or other ID for identification in case for emergency.
However, since you'll have an English-speaking tour guide to walk with
you, you shall be fine. Bring
some snacks, or sandwich for your lunch. Also bring a couple of bottled
water and a clean t-shirt (You'll get wet!). Bring an umbrella if it gets
very cloudy. Check the weather before hand. Here are more remarks to
prepare for your hiking.
- You are
likely to be chased on the Wall by book, map, postcard and water
peddlers. You should say NO at the beginning otherwise you will
be followed throughout the whole walk.
- To keep the
cost low to promote the outdoor activities in Beijing, we only
include the tour bus fee. The tourist insurance is not included,
we suggest participant purchase their own insurance before going.
- In summer,
thunder storms and rain are common while hiking on the Wall. Be
sure to have your cell phone (Mobile phone) powered-off in the bad
weather. Using cell phone while thundering could be fatal!!!
- There are
local people selling bottled water and even Coco Cola all along
the wall. They generally charge four or five yuan (RMB5)
for each. So you are recommended to carry some water at hand. Our
recommended drink is Gatorade which can be bought at CareFour and
- It's really
a long drive for about six hours round trip. We may be delayed by
the traffic or something unforeseen, so don't come if you have
something planned in the evening.
- It is likely
to be very hot at noon under the sun from May to October., but there
is always gentle breeze or even gale.
- Some parts
on the way are really rough, and the wall is broken and loose. So
you must take care, and bring some medical supplies.
- For the
trekker from Jinshanling: This is an A-B trek, the bus will be waiting
at the parking lot of Simatai. You will NOT be able to go in your
own car (unless you also bring a driver), you won't be returning
to the starting place.
- Mobile phones have limited
coverage in the area, so if you see someone trekking alone, stay
with them. This trip is to "smell the fresh air", rather than to
nothing except your footprints. Take nothing except photograph and
- Are you willing to send photos of
your experience to us to get them published on our site? We'd like
to take up to 10 digital photos and will pay you back for $20.
We'd like to see you, your teammate and our tour guide in them.
Please contact us for details.
