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.
This program, which is recommended for families, offers a wide range of opportunities for fun and enjoyment. You can experience an unrestored section of the Great Wall in its natural state (Lianhuachi), in an uncrowded and relaxed environment, as this section is relatively unknown to tourists. Afterwards, you'll take in one of the most famous parts of the Great Wall at Mutianyu, which is renowned for its picturesque vistas and has been visited by scores of world leaders on their China visit. On the way home, we'll pay tribute to modern China, with a visit to Beijing's Olympic Park, and especially its two standout features, the Bird's Nest Stadium and the Water Cube.
