Three-day Great Wall Hiking & Camping on the Great Wall Route 3AA: Gubeikou-Jinshanling-Jiankou-Mutianyu-Lakeside Huanghuacheng-Xishuiyu

This program takes you to the classic Beijing-area Great Wall hikes. We start out at Gubeikou, where we will hike through Jinshanling until we reach the western portion of Simatai. With both unrestored “Wild Wall” and grand brickwork and watchtowers, this will make for a nice study in contrasts. The scene then shifts to Jiankou, which is fast becoming one of the most photographed sections of Great Wall, and once on it it’ll easy to see why. Much like the previous day’s hike Jiankou-Mutianyu makes for an interesting study of contrasts in Great Wall styles. We conclude your tour with a visit to Huanghuacheng-Xishuiyu, which also features restored and unrestored Great Wall, and which features an exceedingly rare sight-the Great Wall underwater!
