Private Trip: Chen Castle Great Wall Camping (2days)

The Great Wall in this section was named after the village, Chen Castle Great Wall. One may wonder if there is truly castle there. Actually, there were fortresses in the villages but they are all gone now.

Chen Castle is located in Huailai county, Hebei province. It connects north to the Badaling, and south to the General Xu Great Wall.

The Chen Castle Great Wall was built in the early Ming dynasty, about 600 years ago. It was the defense wall and protected the northern gateway of Beijing for over 250 years.

Looking back at this year, the hike with John was a fantastic experience for my children and myself. Thank you to China Hiking for being so flexible in organising this tour for our little group. What a luxury to have had the Great Wall for ourselves. Great and very friendly organisation!

Heidi and Fred are the highest level of tour operators you can hope to meet. I have been on multiple overnight hikes with them. If you want to “get out there”, and see the wild parts of the wall, this is the tour company for you! They care about the details. Their tours are well curated, well planned, and well executed. They feed you like you are family joining them for the holidays. There was plenty of time to take pictures along the way, and they set a comfortable pace for both the exuberant hiker and the novice. When my dad visited, special care was taken to accommodate him since his knees and back bother him. They found a separate trail entry point for us so that we could still camp out on the wall together. This allowed for him to have a less strenuous first day on the wall. I can’t thank Fred and Heidi (Guide Xiao Yan and the other guides) for spectacular times on the Wall. I will treasure these experiences for the rest of my days!

My husband and I visited Beijing in Oct 2019. We went to China only to do this trip and see the Great Wall sans all the other tourists. We were referred to this company by our friends. We had a great experience and loved our guides and group. It's very relaxed and enjoyable and fun to hike along the wall. We ate at farm houses along the way, and it was delicious food! The last leg of the wall is open to tourists, so you will see other people. We would have preferred not, but it's also cool to see the wall restored. We had young children on our trip, who did well, but it's a lot of hiking for them! So make sure you're prepared to carry them when/if needed! You can bring a backpack with you and bus will take your other "gear" to the farm house for you. We kept all our gear with us. We may have missed it in the middle of all our planning and booking, but could have used a little more info on what to bring and the logistics. We didn't know we would have the option to send some items with the bus. Might be helpful for families planning this. Have good shoes and a backpack! Great trip! Will be a highlight for us.
