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. Except for snow and inclement weather, these programs are available all year round. With these programs you can see the most famous sections of the Great Wall, the ones that you have probably scene on postcards, National geographic, and the like. 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.
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.
