    What to Expect

    Day 1: Beijing to Gubeikou

    Stop At: The Great Wall of Gubeikou, Gubeikou Town, Beijing 101508 China
    Gubeikou, along with the passes at Shanhaiguan in the east and Juyongguan in the west, was a key strategic target in military campaigns since ancient times. Protecting these three passes was considered vital for keeping Beijing safe from the Mongolian nomads. There was also a fierce battle between Chinese and Japanese in the 2nd World War. The vistas of the sinuous Wall snaking its way over the ridges of the Yanshan Mountain are breathtaking.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Great Wall Inn Gubeikou

    Day 2: Jinshanling to Beijing

    Stop At: Jinshanling Great Wall, Chengde Shi, Luanping County 068250 China
    Jinshanling offers arguably the finest hiking anywhere on the Great Wall. It is extremely photogenic, with over 15 watch-towers, and steep gradients that give constantly changing perspectives and wide, open views. There is fascinating variety in the watchtowers here. Some have two storeys, others three. Some have flat roofs, others rounded and others again are pitched with upturned eaves. This section of the wall is wild, ruined, preserved and original. On a clear day, it is difficult to fail to take good photographs here.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Great hike on the wall during two days with Peter. Peter has a very good knowledge of the wall and give you a lot of detailed information. The sunrise on the Great wall was fantastic. Everything was well organized.

    Our guide Robert was exceptional. Very friendly and very supportive of all hikers irrespective of their fitness. We spent most of two days hiking on parts of the wall where we saw very few other people. Much of the wall was quite damaged and overgrown...More

    If Great Wall Hiking can't accommodate you, I suggest also trying Beijing Hikers. Both companies are really good.
