If you like some challenge hiking experience and also want to avoid crowded tourists, this all inclusive private tour is a great fit for you. You will hike on Jiankou Great Wall, which is connected to Mutianyu Great Wall in the east, and joins the Dazhenyu Great Wall in the west. Since the mountain here is higher and steeper, this section becomes more winding and varied. 'Jiankou', is translated as 'Arrow Nock' in English, because the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.

What To Expect

The Great wall of Jiankou
Your tour starts at 8am, and your professional Great Wall trek guide will come to pick you up at your hotel in Beijing. You will take your private car to XiZhazi of Huairou County (2 hours driving), then you will walk through a forest and walk towards west direction on Jiankou Great Wall. You will find this section of the Wall is rarely visited by the tourists. During September and October, a few Chinese tourists interested in hiking will also come to this place for fun.

Jiankou Great Wall is well-known for its steepness. There is one section is called "Ca Bian Guo" which means the wall is so narrow that only one person can go through at a time. Moreover, you will encounter a section of the Wall is named "San Shi Ba Deng", which is with 70 to 80 degree slop. "Mini Potala Palace" is another exciting section of the wall, which is built on the narrow and steep mountain range. Once you reach "sky stairs" there, you will start going down from the Wall. The entire hiking time is about 4 to 5 hours, and you surely will enjoy it very much.

After your tour is finished, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Beijing.
