What to Expect
Meet your private driver in hotel lobby at reasonable time , this according to date and hotel location. You will ride about 2 hours from hotel to Jinshanling Great wall. You will start hiking from Jinshanling part great wall ,and end at Simatai west. It will take about 3 hours to complete the hiking. This section 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 watch-towers here. Some have two stories, 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.

A lunch at a local farmer’s restaurant if you need( Lunch fee on your side ) . Driver will take you back to hotel if do not need lunch.
