Gubeikou-Jinshanling-Second Valley (Simatai West) Hiking & Camping

 http://www.greatwalladventure.com/Great-Wall-Hiking-2-day-tours.htm

For those that have a little more time to spend in Beijing, and whose interest in the Great Wall runs a little deeper than the average tourist, our 2-day Great Wall programs are a perfect way to sate your Great Wall appetite! With these two day programs, you'll be able to spend more time on the Great Wall, see more of China's natural beauty, explore relatively unknown sections, and even sleep on the wall itself! (for more information about sleeping on the Great Wall see Routes 2X, 2AA and 2AB) As with all of our other programs, you will receive nothing but the best service and guidance.

In accordance with our 1-day programs, you will be picked up in the morning by your travel guide and driver. Your travel guide, who has gone through the strictest safety criteria in the country, will be with you at all times during your Great Wall hike, ensuring your safety while also imparting you with his/her vast knowledge of the Great Wall. In addition, all heavy camping materials and provisions will be provided (such as tents when sleeping on the Great Wall). The parts of the Great Wall we will encounter are often empty, allowing you to have some quality one-on-one time with one of the world's great wonders. For those hearty outdoor types who live a challenge and trying something new, this is the perfect way to explore the Great Wall of China!


In addition to spending the night on the Great Wall, you'll get to explore some of the more unknown and wild sections of the wall. The hike will start at Gubeikou, a relatively unvisited part of the Great Wall that is in its natural and unrestored state. After a few hours of hiking we'll pass over into Jinshanling, which will feature some of the most stunning scenery you will see in China. Restored brickwork, and large watchtowers dot the land, and under one of these watchtowers is where you will spend the night. The next day, after watching the sun rise over the Great Wall, we'll continue hiking Jinshanling until we reach the Second Valley (aka the west wing of Simatai), a part of Simatai featuring dramatic ruins and which connects to Jinshanling in the west.
