Great Wall at Panlongshan (Coiling Dragon Mountain) and Wolongshan (Crouching Tiger Mountain)

Panlongshan (Coiling Dragon Mountain) is a great place to hike the Great Wall, so is Wohushan (Crouching Tiger Mountain). The climbing is challenging in places but the level of danger is reasonable for the Great Wall. The architecture is interesting, the defense security features are unique, and scenery is excellent. Both parts of the Great Wall are in a highly deteriorated condition.

Panlongshan is reached via Gubeikou. The Panlongshan or Coiling Dragon Mountain Great Wall lies between Jinshanling to the east and Gubeikou to the west. This section shares many of the characteristics of the Jinshanling Great Wall but it has not been restored since the Ming Dynasty. Part of the Panlongshan is used by the Chinese military department as a military exercise base and is therefore strictly off limits to all visitors. Hikers must detour around the military base (on the north side of the Wall).

Wohushan is located just opposite to Panlongshan, divided by the Beijing-Chengde Expressway. The name of Woshuo means "crouching tigers" from the shape of the mountain of a pair of tigers with one pushing up and one pushing down, as two giant intrepid guards of the capital city of Beijing. The Great Wall at Wohushan is also known for the parts of the Great Wall built in various dynasties from over a thousand years ago to five hundred.

Like Panlongshan, most parts of the Wall is so deteriorated that it would be impossible to walk upon it. The peak reaches as high as 665.22 meters. At that altitude, ancient warriors can command a fairly wide views of both in and outside the Great Wall, obtaining what the information of potential enemy threat that only modern telescopes can reach or satellite. The walking distance on Wohushan of Great Wall is roughly 4.8 km (3 mi) long to the west side of Panlongshan. The sister towers at Woshushan are the unique towers found on the entire Great Wall of China. The Wall here is also famous for round towers, one-sided towers, flat towers, knife-shaped towers and construction of other creative structures.

Only experienced guides can get on the trail to find the Wall where you can climb and enjoy the superior views from the watchtowers. Great Wall Adventure Club is the help!

You can get to Panlongshan or Wolongshan from Beijing by going to Gubeikou. It takes approximately 2.5 hours to reach Gubeikou. No rebuilding has been done on this section of the Great Wall since the Ming Dynasty. The parts closest to Gubeikou are not in good condition, and the condition improves as you get further from town.

Panlongshan leads to Jinshanling when you walk eastward. As you hike towards Jinshanling, you will find a wide variety of conditions from walls and towers that are nearly completely intact to areas that are highly deteriorated and nearly unrecognizable, and everything in between. There are areas where it’s not possible to walk on the Great Wall and you will need to walk alongside instead. In most cases the path is clearly visible and in some steep spots it’s augmented with steps. This area affords some of the best photography opportunities of the entire Great Wall. You'll have the same opportunity to take great shots of the Great Wall on Wolongshan. Wohushan is not significantly more strenuous than Jinshanling, but it's far less civilized.

We are organizing the transportation to send you to this beautiful section of the Great Wall on daily basis. Each departure can be formed by 2-person-group, 3-person-group or 4-person-group.
