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 4+ / 500 RMB (450 RMB for members) – A shorter version of our tough hike up to the craggy peak of Heituo Mountain that finishes by hiking out below the tall cliffs on the Nine-Eyes Tower side of the mountain.
Level 3+ / 400 RMB – Walk through chestnut orchards to find a dirt trail that climbs up to the unrestored wall; follow the wall through unrestored and restored sections, making a big climb up to a lookout point high on a ridge. If you're not good with heights, there's a short section of this hike you won't like very much!
Level 3 / 400 RMB – Follow a path through a scenic gully into an isolated and mostly abandoned old village; continue through the hills to find a short stretch of very old Great Wall. After the hike, take a stroll through the streets of Yongning Town, a countryside town with a long history.
Level 3+ / 420 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 – 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.
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.
