Day 1 Full-day Group Hiking at Jinshanling Great Wall of China connected with Camping on the Great Wall at Night

Stop At: Jinshanling Great Wall

The Great Wall at Jinshanling is one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall with many original features. The pictures of this section often show in China's official images of the Great Wall. Jinshanling is a remote and relatively isolated section of the Great Wall. You can find many poems and tablet writings on the Wall left when Qi Jiguang directed the rebuilding of this section of the Great Wall 500 years ago. Meticulous detail is evident in the construction of the Wall. The uneven steps meant to slow down advancing troops should they make it onto the Wall. The narrowing curves and paths limit the invaders' movement, making them vulnerable to the defending army. You will enjoy the history with 3.5 hours of walking. After lunch, our camping manager will transfer you to Gubeikou, an older and the oldest section of the Great Wall near Beijing. Here you will have the chance to walk to this part of the Wall to watch the splendid sunset.

Duration: 4 hour

Stop At: The Great Wall of Gubeikou

Gubeikou Great Wall occupies a strategically important location, which is difficult to access. Situated between Shanhaiguan Pass and Juyongguan Pass, and about 62 miles to Beijing, the bastion is protecting the northern gateway to the capital. This part of the Wall is precisely the battlefield between the Chinese resistance army and invading Japanese troops in 1931. You will see the splendid sunset here (weather permitting) and take the photos that only a sunset walk can make possible.
