Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall Small Group Hike
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
It’s a really challenging, but rewarding hike. I don’t have much hiking experience prior to this, when I started the hike I was pretty scare when I saw those big, high stones and extremely steep pavements. I took my time to go through it step by step, literally. I wasn’t rush to complete the hike, and we took breaks when needed. It felt really good to have overcome that, knowing that you can achieved anything as long as you overcome the fears that you carry with you. The group was small, 4 person and 1 local guide. He speaks fluent English, very friendly, detailed oriented and shared a lot with us on not only about the Great Wall but also experiences he had. I would highly recommend this hike if you’d like to see the contrast of the original Great Wall and the restored part of the Great Wall. Also if you appreciate Great Wall at its truest form, and nature.
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!
Really good trip, enjoyed it very much ! Happy to have had Bob chen as my guide !
