Great Wall Jinshanling Group Hike

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.

Most Stunning One-Day Lakeside Great Wall Hike

The trip will start with a drive to the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng. Huanghuacheng, which is fast becoming popular with hikers, features classically restored brickwork and the way that it glides and bends across the mountainside. Situated along a lake, Huanghuacheng is a picturesque section of wall, so remember to bring your camera. About halfway through the hike we'll pass over into Xishuiyu, a section of the Great Wall, a little known section of Great Wall that is unrestored, meaning that the “wild wall” starts to take hole. As we walk along the ruins of the wall here, you will get to see something truly special, the broken Great Wall running underwater.

Great Wall Hike with Cultural Tour to the Imperial Tomb

In addition to spending time on one one the best sections of the Great Wall, you'll also get to explore the Eastern Qing Tombs, which is the final resting place for many of China's last ruling dynasty. The day starts with a drive out to the Great Wall at Huangyaguan. The great thing about Huangyaguan was that it was designed as a miniature version of the entire Great Wall, giving you an understanding of the Great Wall's functions and features without having to walk the whole thing! From there we'll drive to the Eastern Qing tombs, a sprawling tomb complex that many feel is much more exciting than the Ming Tombs. Here is the final resting place of five emperors, four empresses, five imperial concubines, and one princess of China's last imperial dynasty, the Qing.
