Things to do

While there aren't specially structured activities this time, there are some fun things to do.

Climb Great Wall towers: Climb on top of the big tower, and try to find the shoot location of the historical photos. Best for older kids.

Walk along the Great Wall: the basic route is mostly flat once you get on top of the wall. It's possible to add more wall walking on this hike if you're interested.

Gubeikou adventure playground: swings, rope swings, see-saws, balance beams, and ropes.

Please contact us if you'd like more details about the plan.
