The Jinshanling Great Wall has not been repaired since 1570. It is a remote and relatively isolated section of the Great Wall.

Rated as the top-seller Great Wall hiking of the past three years, this program still offers all that you would expect from a premium Great Wall experience. You get the classically restored and graceful peaks of the Jinshanling, and the unrestored “wild wall” of Gubeikou (which takes the place of Simatai). This makes for a wonderful lesson on the uses and purpose of the Great Wall, as the sections here were placed at a highly strategic point to keep out northern invaders. Not being nearly as crowded as other Great Wall section, this Great Wall hike is an excellent way for a family to spend a day at the Great Wall!

The EXTREME Seven Day Beijing Great Wall Odyssey

http://www.greatwalladventure.com/Great-Wall-Hiking-5-7-day.htm

These epic seven-day journeys are composed for the ultimate Great Wall enthusiast. These seven day adventures are optimally designed to give you the ultimate Great Wall experience. These hikes require you to be in good physical condition, so please be aware of how much you can handle. While these hikes are tough physically, you will gain a greater understanding of the Great Wall and its original strategic purpose, as well as a wonderful tour of rural Chinese culture and nature. These seven day programs take you to the best of the Beijing-area Great Wall sections, and also to some of the lesser known ones, like Shixiaguan, Sandaoguan, and Badaling (unrestored), and some even take you out to the wall’s eastern-most point where the Great Wall meets the Yellow Sea. All these hikes contain the beautiful and majestic ruins of a Great Wall unrestored, along with glimpses of a restored Great Wall with grand watchtowers and spectacular brickwork. While daytime on the Great Wall is a great experience, you’ll have the rare opportunity to camp overnight on the Great Wall as well (in one of Jinshnaling’s watchtowers). This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is sure to be one of your most cherished moments during your China trip. Just imagine how great it will be to witness the sunset and sunrise over the Great Wall. For all you amateur photographers, this is a treat you won’t want to miss. Like all of your Great Wall programs, you will be accompanied by an English-speaking guide and your own driver, making sure that your Great Wall experience is safe as well as fun.


Not for the regular tourist, this hike is designed for the well-conditioned hiker with experience. Featuring 5-7 hours of hiking per day, this hike is only for those serious about exploring the Great Wall. We begin at Badaling, not the tourist one, but a quiet unrestored section noted for its challenging terrain. We’ll move into Shixiaguan, a largely intact portion set among the mountains and hills. The scene then shifts to Huanghuacheng, where we will trek until we reach Xishuiyu, which is famed for its underwater portion of the Great Wall. Next, we’ll tackle Jiankou, a largely dilapidated section that features awe-inspiring ruins set against some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable. We’ll get a break when we cross over into Mutianyu, a largely restored section where the hiking is relatively tame. The following day we’ll be at Gubeikou, a vitally important section that saw some fighting during the Japanese invasion of the 1930s. From here we’ll hike into Jinshanling, where that night we will camp out in one of its countless watchtowers. The next day we’ll encounter west Simatai (the rest is closed for the time being), which features some of the steepest hiking you’ll find. Our final trek will be at Huanghuacheng, and while the wall here is restored its setting upon rolling hills makes for some hard trekking.

The following day we’ll take a brief respite from the Great Wall to visit the East Qing tombs, the resting place for much of China’s final ruling dynasty. We’ll then resume our hike by trekking Huangyaguan, which represents a miniature composition of the entire Great Wall. We’ll then end your adventure by going on the most popular Great Wall hike, starting from the western end of Simatai (the rest is closed for the time being), we’ll pass through Jinshanling before ending in Gubeikou, a strategically important part of wall that last saw action when the Japanese invaded in the 1930s. The wall here is highly photogenic, and its steepness and partly-dilapidated state is sure to give you a good work out.
