Enjoy a 5-hour hike of the Great Wall from Jiankou to Mutianyu followed by a traditional lunch in a local restaurant, on a full-day trip from downtown Beijing.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel in Beijing at 8.00 am to embark of a 2.5-hour drive to Jiankou. You will start the hiking around 10:30, and it will take about 5 hours hiking on the wall.

Jiankou to Mutianyu offer a wonderfully satisfying experience of the Wall. It has superb scenery, dense vegetation and many fine watch-towers in an excellent restored section which is about six meters broad. The brickwork is elaborate, with crenellations on both sides and finely curved eaves on some watchtower roofs. There are decorative gables with animal statues, and tablets bearing calligraphy above some entrances.

During the first hour you will go straight up and reach the wall, then you will hike unrestored towers. The wild Wall to the west is the original Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) with fine stonework, and there are almost no other people. You will be rewarded when you approach Zhengbeilou Tower, where you will have a breathtaking view of Jiankou section.

A late lunch will be served at a local restaurant after the hike before you return to your hotel.
