Our 1-day Great Wall hiking programs is our bread and butter and is what made us famous. With our 1-day programs you can see the best of the Great Wall in style and comfort, and which will also allow you to be back in Beijing by nightfall. You can venture across the dramatic ruins of Jiankou, walk through the graceful watchtowers of Mutianyu, visit the relatively tourist-free sections of Huanghuacheng and Xishuiyu, or take the challenge of our most popular Great Wall trip, the hike between Gubeikou and Jinshanling, which gives you the full Great Wall experience, from tastefully restored watchtowers and brick to the spectacular real “Great Wall” in its unrestored splendor. Your travel guides are fully licensed to provide stimulating and thoughtful tours for hikers to the Great Wall, and are with you throughout your trip, explaining the legends behind the wall, from sections used to resist the Mongols to those that repelled the Japanese, allowing you to have a fun, informative, and safe trip.
This program was specifically designed at the request of visitors who wanted a tougher and more invigorating Great Wall hike. At 20km and 6+hours of hiking this day at the Great Wall is no joke! However, if you’re up to the challenge, you’re in for a treat, as you’ll get to experience stunning views such as the snaking wall at Jinshanling and the dramatic ruins of west Simatai. You’ll get the full Great Wall experience, with glorious watchtowers, tastefully restored brickwork, and rugged and challenging Great Wall remnants. Please be advised that this hike should only be undertaken by those in good physical condition.
