I have lived in beijing for many years, have worked in the travel industry and have visited a number of sites around Beijing both on and off the beaten track. Still my family and I join Beijing Hikers on a regular basis as the walking routes offered -e specially on t and around the Great Wall are exceptional. If as a traveler you have only one shot at visiting the wall this is the way to go. If going as a family level 3 hikes can be done by 9-10 year olds, level 3.5-4 is a good challenge form 12 years and up.
