What you will do
In Beijing Municipality, the Great Wall expands over 630km. Except for about 50km of the Great Wall developed for tourism at scenic spots like Badaling and Simatai, the majority of the wall is still left untouched, making it extraordinarily well-preserved. ChinaHiking will guide you to those most remote and long deserted parts of the Wild Great wall.
As usual we have a good lunch at a local farmhouse before we start our Great Wall adventure. From the farmhouse we will take an almost invisible trail trough the low bush towards the Great Wall. The trail is only used by shepherds these days. It will take us about 1.5 hour of uphill hiking till we reach the Great Wall. A normal physical condition is enough to make it to the top.
A short walk on top of the wall brings us past a few strong intact tower and seldom seen round tower. Here we will cross the wall and hike down for 1 hour trough the bush towards a tiny village at the other side of the mountain range where our driver will pick us up and drive us back to Beijing.

Provided byChina Hiking
China Hiking is for the dreamers among us who, their imaginations running wild, enjoy exploration and adventure in all four seasons.
They stay away from the metropolitan areas and fancy resorts; instead they set off to seek unique places, where the population is scattered and the modern world forgotten.
They don't rely on the typical facilities of the tourism industry but love to eat, sleep and travel like locals. They can endure uncomfortable transportation in pursuit of adventure. Their cost of traveling is the least expensive and they want it to benefit the local residents.
Chinahiking is about fun and small group exploration (max.10 people) . There are no tours of the Forbidden City, capital museum or Terracotta Warriors. Instaed we leave the beaten track in search for real culture and nature.
The trails you hike are what they always have been without human restoration. The scenery your eyes will witness tells a history of its own.
