Level 3+ / 420 RMB – After a reasonably tough hill climb of 40–50 minutes, we reach a beautiful, unrestored stretch of Great Wall. The hike continues along the wall, passing through towers, finishing in a rustic village.
Upcoming hikes and trips
Ready for a great hike? Every week we run hikes and trips to the Great Wall, hills, mountains, forests, and villages around Beijing, with a wide range of hikes that are suitable for casual walkers as well as the super-fit.
Level 3 / 1,600 RMB (1,440 RMB for members) – Camp overnight in a scenic spot on the Great Wall. You’ll hike easier with just the essentials in your day pack; we’ll arrange delivery of the heavy stuff to the campsite.
Level 3+ / 450 RMB – A new take on our Longquanyu Great Wall hike, with an extra 1.5km of wall walking along a newly restored section. Follow the Great Wall through the hills to finish at the Little West Lake reservoir.
Level 4 / 500 RMB – Walk from Gubeikou to Jinshanling, following stretches of restored and unrestored Great Wall and taking a detour through the pretty farmland that surrounds Hemp Village, finishing all the way over at the eastern end of Jinshanling.
Level 3+ / 420 RMB – Try out the 10km trail we used for our hiking festival—mellow trails up to the Great Wall, some steep ups and downs on unrestored ‘wild’ Great Wall, and then a quick climb over a hill to complete the loop.
Level 2+ / 450 RMB – Spend the day out in Cuandixia, a Ming Dynasty-era village in the mountains west of Beijing – first a walk in the hills near the village, then a good look about the old courtyards, temples, and narrow lanes of the village itself. Lunch included.
Beijing Hikers operates trips to many places in China – famous scenic areas, as well as those obscure and less well-known. We take care of all the organisation, leaving you free to enjoy the scenery without stress.
