Level 4 / 380 RMB – A tough hike up and down unrestored Great Wall, peaking by the Chinese Knot, a section where three lines of Great Wall come together. Note: if you're not comfortable with making a short-but-steep climb on somewhat tricky terrain, you might not find this hike an enjoyable experience.
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+ / 380 RMB – Walk up and down valleys and over hills on the way from a small valley village over to the Ming Tombs area, passing by two closed tombs on the way to the end of the hike. 14km with two good climbs, trails quite brushy in places.
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 / 400 RMB – Begin with a stroll through chestnut orchards on the way to the Great Wall, then follow the wall up along a big ridge, finishing up with stunning views of the Little West Lake.
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.
