Our guide will pick you up anywhere within the 3rd Ring Road in the early morning, and we will drive directly to the Gubeikou Section of the Great Wall.
The Great Wall was built to protect China from attacks from 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 the Wangjing Tower in the Simatai Section, many kilometers away. Today’s hike will take us to a military area along the Wall, which we must bypass. We will take a pleasant diversion through a friendly village, and then hike directly to the Jinshanling section of the Wall.
The Jinshanling Great Wall is known for its well-maintained watch towers, quite close together. At lunchtime, if the day is too hot, we will have our picnic lunch inside one of the beacon towers, where it is always cool. The tour ends in the parking lot at a pre-designated time and transports everyone back to the city.
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
