Tour Itinerary

  • Day 1
    ARRIVE BEIJING
    DAY 1: ARRIVE BEIJING

    Upon arrival, make your own way to your accommodation. The rest of the day is at leisure.

  • Day 2
    GUBEIKOU – JINSHANLING HIKE
    DAY 2: GUBEIKOU – JINSHANLING HIKE

    This morning, transfer to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall, a stretch much less frequented by tourists than others. From here, start your hike towards Jinshanling; you will be walking for around 5-6 hours over a distance of 10 kilometres. Gubeikou is a rough and wild section of the Great Wall, while Jinshanling is known for its beautiful brickwork and watchtowers. Both sections offer some of the best views in China. The walk intersects a military base and you will therefore take a detour off the wall around the base, stopping at a farmhouse for lunch. After finishing your hike, transfer to Gubei Watertown for an overnight stay. After dinner, explore the Simatai section of the Great Wall at night. Much of Simatai Great Wall has not been restored and offers a fantastic insight into years gone by. (B,L,D)

  • Day 3
    GUBEI WATERTOWN TO BEIJING
    DAY 3: GUBEI WATERTOWN TO BEIJING

    Spend the morning discovering the delights of Gubei Watertown. Built in the style of a Chinese ancient town, Gubei is nestled beside the Simatai section of the Great Wall and encompasses the beautiful Mandarin Duck Lake Reservoir. After lunch, return to your hotel in Beijing where arrangements end. (B,L)
