Detailed Hiking Itinerary



At 6:00 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.


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’) 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 a good place to explore on foot.

The Jinshanling Great Wall was initially built from 1368 to 1389 in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and in 1567 and 1570 rebuilding of the Wall was mainly directed by 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. ‘Watching Beijing Tower’ is on the highest point, from which you can see Beijing. The Jinshanling Great Wall is second only to the Badaling Great Wall in its completeness.

Much of the hiking that we will do on Jinshanling today is relatively easy. Jinshanling has five main passes and 67 watchtowers. Every 100 meters (328 feet), there is an enemy tower each of which is about ten meters (33 feet) high. Featuring various structures and having various functions, those watchtowers are either one tiered or two-tiered. Among them, the most celebrated are the Big and Small Jinshan Watchtowers. The Wangjinglou Tower, the General Tower, the Black Tower and the Taochun Tower are also must-sees on the Jinshanling Great Wall.

We will take about 3 hours to explore and trek along the Jinshanling Great Wall. Following our trek, we will stop at a local restaurant where you will get to try refreshing and authentic rural Chinese dishes. Following lunch, we will drive back to Beijing,

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 at 5 pm. Instead, they'll drop everyone off at the Dongzhimen Subway Station. Guests can take subways, buses or taxis to return to their own hotel. 5 PM is Beijing's rush hour. Dropping off guests at every locations would be a very lengthy and painful experience for everyone involved.
However, please keep in mind that they will still pick up guests from every location in the morning from 6 AM.
