The hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu starts in a small village at Jiankou. We do a big uphill climb to get on to the Great Wall and then follow it all the way over to Mutianyu.

Parts of the Great Wall at Jiankou are a bit steep for fun on a hike – we avoid those parts on this hike, but you can get a look at them in the photos in this set.

We finish the hike on the restored Mutianyu section of Great Wall, an area popular with tourists.
