Level 4 / 450 RMB – A tough hike that follows the Great Wall from Jiankou's General's Tower all the way over to the Mutianyu Great Wall, starting on unrestored wall and finishing on a restored section. Post-hike Xmas meal and dumpling-making contest!
Level 3 / 380 RMB – Visit one of the unrestored sections of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall and follow it along a ridge on the way to the Walled Village, an old Ming Dynasty-era army barracks that has been converted into a little village, with courtyard houses inside the walls now instead of soldiers.
Level 3 / 400 RMB – Walk all of the eastern section of Jinshanling; hike a few towers of Simatai and maybe get a little look at what they’re doing over there (still not open!); and follow a paved park trail through the hills to finish
