What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Shixiaguan Great Wall (Southwest Gate), 032 Xian Dao, Yanqing Qu, Beijing Shi, China

We will depart from Beijing at 8am in the morning, and the journey will take about one and a half hours. After walking through villages and woods for about 20 minutes, you will at first reach the Beiqi Great Wall. This stretch of Great Wall was mainly built from mud, stones and wood, created an elevated military route through the harsh and rugged terrain. You will see stones and marbles opening a road among greens and stretching along ridges. You can’t help throwing all the noises and concerns away and enjoy the nature ahead.

After hiking for 40 minutes, you will reach The Ming Great Wall, which was built by the Ming dynasty as a deterrent against northern settlements of Mongol tribes. Here, the Great Wall was built from bricks and stone. The Ming Great Wall stretches like a Loong (legend godlike dragon in China). You will feel like riding the giant flying dragon as you are on the Wall. And if you are familiar with Chinese history, the fierce battles between the armed Mongol tribes and the Ming armies will come into your mind as you are standing right on where these have been happening.

After hiking uphills and downhills, eventually you will reach the stretch of Great Wall which was restored in the 18 centuries. The hiking tour will end here. Descending from the Great Wall within 50 minutes, you will be enjoying your lunch specially prepared for you by local villagers. Your happy journey ends here and you will leave for Beijing with all the marvels and wonders of Great Wall.

Just when I thought I have seen the best of the Great Wall James still surprises me! This is an amazing hike. You can see two different parts of the wall and how they converge. This hike has you walking on some of the oldest parts straight into the more recent Ming Dynasty built
