Hiking Time: 3 hours
Hiking Level: Easy

We’re hiking the east part of the Badaling Great Wall for 2-3 hours. Cable car is available, but it is optional. Then move back to the Juyongguan Pass Great Wall lying 20km south of the Badaling. Check-in at Juyongguan Great Wall Hotel located under the Great Wall at Juyongguan. Dinner at hotel. Free for rest of the day.

Hiking Time: 5 hours
Hiking Level: Intermediate
After breakfast at the hotel, start the day with the 2-3 hour’s hike across the west section of the Juyongguan Pass Great Wall. The Juyongguan Pass Great Wall is narrow and steep! It is circular with a perimeter of about 4140 meters circling the 2 passes. Most people walk the west part of the Great Wall for its beautiful views and challenging hike. After lunch, drive 40 km to the Huanghuacheng Reservoir. Walking along the reservoir for 1-2 hours enjoying the fantastic view of the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng built in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 ). This section of the Grerat Wall at Huanghuacheng is not officially opened to the public. People have to walk around and see the Great Wall at a distance. The Yellow Flower Great Wall is also famous as the Water Great Wall, the wall going into the water. Because the mountain there is cut by a lake, the Great Wall along the mountain is going down inside the water. Nobody could tell if there’s the real water in the water, but it looks it is outside. In the afternoon, we’re checking the Water Great Wall on our own. Getting into the sightseeing area and be really close to the Great Wall, you’ll judge the wall on your sight. Check-in at Huanghuacheng Courtyard Farmhouse. This inn is just located under the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng. Dinner at inn.

Day 3: Jiankou Great Wall – Mutianyu Great Wall / B & L & D
Hiking Time: 4 hours
Hiking Level: Intermediate
Providing you with unique guides travel information on China, we will head out to the Secret Great Wall. The Secret Great Wall is truly a treasure, because unlike the modern Great Wall of China such as Badaling or even Simatai and Jinshanling sections of the wall, it has not been mentioned in any English-language guidebooks. Thus, you will hardly meet any other tourists on this route. The Secret Great Wall is located in Huairou County, 73 kilometers north from Beijing City. It connects with Mutianyu Great Wall 10 kilometers to the east. This section of the wall was built in 1368 during the period of the Ming Dynasty and is named after its shape (like a bended bow). It is famous among local hikers for its unique beauty. There are several scenic sites you will see, one of which is the enemy observation tower known as, The Eagle Flies Facing Upward”. This observation tower appears extremely high as it was set up on a mountain which forms the highest section of the Secret Great Wall. Therefore, when an eagle flies there, it can only do so facing upwards before reaching the top of the tower. The Beijing Knot (the meeting point for three different converging sections of the Great Wall). We will trek on some of the most magnificent sections of wall, which are virtually deserted. The hike itself would be quiet and beautiful, in about 4 hours of passing deserted sections of the wall in its original state, we will get to a section of the restored wall known as Mutianyu. After the hiking, we’re driving to Jinshanling Great Wall and check in the hostel there.

Day 4: Jinshanling Great Wall – Simatai Great Wall / B & L & D
Hiking Time: 5 hours
Hiking Level: Challenging
After breakfast, around 11:00am we’re starting the hike from the east section at Jinshanling Great Wall to the west section of Simatai Great Wall. The hike is about 12 km and takes about 4-5 hours traveling across 30 towers! Get down the wall at the foot of Simatai at about 04:00pm and check-in at a local inn – Simatai Great Wall Courtyard Hotel under the Simatai Great Wall. Take a bath and have some relaxation. Enjoy a local dinner at the hotel.

Day 5: Simatai Great Wall / B & L
Hiking Time: 3 hours
Hiking Level: Intermediate
After breakfast at your hotel, we’re hiking the east section of the Simatai Great Wall for 2–3 hours in the morning. There are in total sixteen watchtowers built at intervals along this space and it will take about 2-3 hours to reach the twelfth watchtower. Beyond this stage the condition of the stairs and walkways is poor and the passage becomes both steep and narrow which means that it is often safer to use the adjacent footpath rather than try to walk on the Wall itself. So the towers from 13th to 16th are not allowed to hike. Have lunch at local farmhouse restaurant and get back to your hotel downtown Beijing later afternoon.
