What you will do
This hiking will start from the unrestored section at Jiankou, and then continue to the renovated wall eastward at Mutianyu. Jiankou is the steepest section of the wall around Beijing. When we complete the hiking and arrive at Mutianyu, there’s a sharp contrast between restored wall and original wall.
Pick you up at your hotel in Beijing at 8 am and drive to Jiankou (2.5 hrs). You will start the hiking around 10:30, and it will take about 5 hours hiking on the wall. A late lunch at a local restaurant will be organized after the hiking before returning your hotel.
Jiankou to Mutianyu offers a wonderfully satisfying experience of the Wall. It has superb scenery, dense vegetation and many fine watch-towers in an excellent restored section which is about six meters broad. The brickwork is elaborate, with crenellations on both sides and finely curved eaves on some watchtower roofs. There are decorative gables with animal statues, and tablets bearing calligraphy above some entrances. The first one hour is going straight up and reaching the wall, and then hike unrestored towers. The wild Wall to the west is the original Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) with fine stonework, and there are almost no other people. You will be rewarded when you approach Zhengbeilou Tower, where you will have a breathtaking view of Jiankou section.
