Day

This morning, meet your private guide and driver at your hotel, and journey into the Wohuashan Great Wall (2 hour’s drive). Wohuashan (Crouching Tigers) is the western section of Gubeikou Great Wall, winding on the majestic rocky mountains of Wohushan, resembling two lying tigers, hence the name. On this unknown and wild section of the Great Wall, you will not see any tourists. Walk on the wall, through 20 watch towers, getting to Gubeikou Great Wall, which is the most complete and most majestic Great Wall, and was crucial to wars and battle during Liao, Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. Camp overnight on a beacon tower of Gubeikou Great Wall, seeing the sun set and the stars rising on the sky.

  Tailor-make Your Trip  

  • If you don’t want to camp on the Great Wall, or just want one night camping, we can arrange you the hotel/hostel accommodation at the foot of the Great Wall.

Meal: B, L, D

Gubeikou Great Wall trekking


Get up early in the morning, breathing fresh air and viewing the sun rising from the east and shining upon the grand wall (if weather permits). Start hiking from Gubeikou, and head for eastward toward Jinshanling. The trek gets a bit easier today, as most of the terrain is gentle without big slopes. Capture the chance to take photos of the Great Wall, which is looking like a giant dragon zigzagging on the mountain. Besides, Jinshanling is famous for the seas of clouds above it. Continue hiking, and get to Jiankou Great Wall. Camp on one of the well-kept beacon towers.

Meal: B, L, D

The Great Wall Camping


Wake up in the warm and soft sunlight (if weather permits), and view the world differently from the mighty, historical Great Wall. Hike again, from Jiankou to Mutianyu. Jiankou is one of the most beautiful wild Great Walls near Beijing, and a photographer’s paradise. However, it is a rough hike, as some of the parts are rugged and broken. So be careful and walk safely. Finally, we arrive at Mutianyu, a more famous section of the Great Wall. Walk downhill, and transfer back to your hotel for rest. Tonight, you may celebrate your great completion of the Great Wall hiking adventure with a gourmet dinner.
