Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall Small Group Hike

1. Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall Small Group Hike

Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Beijing, and then travel in comfort to the Great Wall of China at Jiankou. Embark on a 10-kilometer hike along one of the wildest sections of the Great Wall of China, and get stunning views of the surrounding mountains and untouched scenery. Climb the steps to the Zhengbei Watch Tower to start your walk along the untouched ramparts as far as Mutianyu. Constructed in 1368 during the Ming Dynasty, the Jiankou Great Wall is made of large light colored rocks and has never been restored, with some sections falling into disrepair. Face the challenge of an approximate 5-hour hike with spectacular views of jagged cliffs and scenic lookouts. Arrive at the reconstructed Mutianyu Great Wall and re-energize with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before the return drive to Beijing.

Overall the experience and the hike were great and my tour guide Bob Chen was awesome! I think most people would manage to finish and also enjoy the hike as it wasn't that physically demanding. Finally, In my view this might be a bit overpriced (as another reviewer has also noted before) but I had a solo tour, so the cost made more sense, compared to if 3-4 more people were also in the group that day. Would recommend it, for sure!

Really enjoyed this excursion, one of the best excursions we have ever done. Our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and helped us take some excellent photos.

We saw the less tourist section of the wall and it was surprising!our guide was very prepared and kind! I will suggest ti choose get your guide for your Trip!

The Jiankou part of the wall was breathtaking, we barely met other people. Pick-up very smooth and good guide!
