This hike is a shortened version of our Nine-Eyes Tower trail, made easier by skipping the tough climb up to the top. We’ll follow hill trails through leafy valleys to get to Jiankou’s ‘Big West Wall’, and then walk south along the wall towards the Chinese Knot. This hike will still be fairly tough on a hot day, and there are some sections that are very steep and slippery.
WEATHER UPDATE 2016/07/22: We might be changing this hike to a different part of the Great Wall because of bad weather forecast for Jiankou. If you’re interested in seeing the Great Wall on Sunday go ahead and sign up, and we’ll contact you with any updates about the trail and weather situation.
