Picking-up from your hotel, you will drive directly to the Gubeikou Section of the Great Wall, This section of the Wall was built to protect China from attacks by the north, but it was here, at the Gubeikou Pass, in 1541, that the Mongols, under the leadership of Altan Khan broke through, and set the suburbs of Beijing on fire. Then, inexplicably, he suddenly took his armies north again, sparing Beijing. If the weather is clear, we will be able to see our ultimate destination, the Wangjing Tower in the Simatai Section, many kilometers away. First day’s hike will take us to a military area along the Wall, which you must bypass. you will take a pleasant diversion through a friendly village, and then hike directly to the Jinshanling section of the Wall, where you will stop for the night. you will stay in a local hotel near the Wall or, if the weather is nice, you will camp in the Watch Tower itself!
Day 2 Jinshanling Great wall and Wohushan Great Wall
If you sleep on the Wall, you will be up before sunrise to catch the sun throwing soft morning light onto the Wall itself, great for pictures! After breakfast, you will continue to hike eastward from Jinshanling toward the Simatai section of the Wall. Our hiking on Jinshanling stops at Wuyan tower where you could enjoy a good view of Simatai Great Wall and overlook the surrounding. Then you will down to meet our driver in the parking lot at the bottom of Jinshanling. Lunch in a local restaurant.
Then you will take a short drive to Wohushan section of the Great Wall for another 2 hours hiking. Wohushan (Crouching Tiger Mountain) Great Wall straddles on the rocky mountains of Wohushan— so named because two distinct peaks resemble a pair of tigers, one looks up and the other bends down. The Wall winds through Wohu Shan for 13.6 kilometer; along the way, 20 towers decked its spine. your hike will cover part of them. This is the Wall which is not seen by tourists! There will be many opportunities to take pictures of this authentic “Wild Wall” before you transfer back to Beijing.
