Great Wall Hiking Tour Itinerary



Between 6:30 am and 8 am, you will be picked up from your hotel by your English-speaking guide and driver. From there we will make the approximate 2.5 hour drive to the Great Wall at Jinshanling. A day earlier, you’ll hear from your tour guide about the estimated pickup time from your hotel’s phone or your personal Chinese mobile phone. Please have a big breakfast and bring some snack with you for this long day.

The Great Wall at Jinshanling is one of the best preserved parts of the Great Wall with many original features. It got its name because it was built on the Greater and Lesser Jinshan (Gold Mountain, literally) Ranges. A tablet with the Chinese inscription for Jinshanling Great Wall was set into this section. The Jinshanling Great Wall has not been repaired since 1570. It is a remote and relatively isolated section of the Great Wall. As there are relatively few tourists at Jinshanling Great Wall, it is definitely a good place to explore on foot and see the real Great Wall.

The Jinshanling Great Wall was initially built from 1368 to 1389 in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), The rebuilding of the Wall was mainly directed by a famous general Qi Jiguang (1528-1588). Poems and tablet writings can be found on the Jinshanling Great Wall left from the time when Qi Jiguang directed the rebuilding of this section of the Great Wall. There are more than 100 watch towers along the Jinshanling Great Wall. The ‘Watching Beijing Tower’ is on the highest point, from which you can see Beijing.
There are five main passes and 67 watchtowers at Jinshanling although you will finish a fraction of it during the trip. Featuring various structures and having various functions, those watchtowers are either one tiered or two-tiered. We will take roughly 3 hours to explore and trek along this world heritage.

Following our trek, we will stop at a local restaurant where you will get to try refreshing and authentic rural Chinese dishes.
Since this trip goes very far to Jinshanling and then returns, and in order to ensure that guests spend enough time touring Jinshanling, they will not drop off guests at each place (hotels, primarily) after the group returns to Beijing around 6 pm, the middle of  of the horrible rush hour. Instead, they'll drop everyone off at the Dongzhimen Subway Station to save your time. Guests can take subways, buses or taxis to return to their own hotels or somewhere to enjoy the night in Beijing.



What to bring with this exciting hike:

*Hiking boots or sneakers sunscreen and sunglasses.

* Bottled water
* Backpack, and snacks or energy/protein supplements you may need before our lunch
* Camera


Pickup: To clarify, a group tour means that we will pick you up from place to place in the morning and that can take time. If you book a private tour then there would be no need to go around the city to pick up others. As you are probably well aware, Beijing traffic effects a lot of what we do, but nevertheless, we should have done a better job of communicating with you and giving you the most out of your day with us.


The tour guide will pick you and other guests up from different hotels/locations in Beijing in the morning, and then will take you to Jinshanling. Upon arrival, your guide will show you where to get started, and if you wish to take the cable car, your guide will help you buy tickets at the entry. Your guide will hike with you for a few watchtowers and you will be at your own pace to explore more watchtowers.

If you wish to have a fully guided tour, then we recommend you consider our
private tour. The purpose of this group tour is to provide customers with the convenience of getting to and back from the Great Wall safely and with the reduced hassle of not having to take public transportation.

Return: Upon getting back to Beijing, your guide will drop you off at the nearest subway station to your hotel and instruct you how to take and get out. The horrible rush hour in Beijing at the time we get back will cost you much more time to get back to your hotel by sitting on the bus that moves forward inch by inch. You will be better off to take the underground transportation. Don't worry about getting lost in the subway. Your guide will tell you with good details.
