On this excellent Great Wall adventure, we’ll walk all of the wall on the east side of Gubeikou; hike on to Jinshanling and walk all of that section of the wall; hike a few towers of Simatai and maybe get a little look at what they’re doing over there; and follow a Jinshanling park trail through the hills to finish. After a late lunch in one of the restaurants at Jinshanling we’ll head back to Beijing. The cost of food, drinks, round-trip transportation, and park tickets is included in the price. Note: there are a few slippery sections on this hike. Good boots required.
Holiday hike! It’s the Tomb-Sweeping Festival holiday weekend, and we might get stuck in traffic at some point on the way to or from the hike. We recommend you don’t make fixed plans for the evening, just in case.
Regular hikers: this is the longest version that we do of this hike, crossing all of the wall at Gubeikou and all of the wall at Jinshanling. (If time permits: we’d have to make the hike shorter if we weren’t going to make closing time at the eastern gate of Jinshanling.)
Tough hike! We’ll going to ask you some questions about your hiking experience as part of the reservation for this hike, just so we can be sure that it will be an enjoyable experience for you!
