For the person who loves outdoor physical activity, this program combines two of the most well-known Great Wall hikes along with one of the least known sections of Great Wall. Your trek begins with the hike from Jiankou Great Wall, which features dramatic peaks and ruins that are a photographer's dream. You'll soon hike over into Mutianyu, one of the most famous and popular sections of Great Wall, but one which has escaped the tackiness of other popular Great Wall spots. The next day we'll have the classic Gubeikou-Jinshanling hike, which allows you to see both restored and “wild” Great Wall, giving you a more nuanced look at the Great Wall. After sleeping in one of Jinshanling's larger watchtowers, you'll continue your hike to Second Valley, a strategic point on the Great Wall that is a bit of a challenge due to its steepness and condition.
