    Early today you will have breakfast at hotel before we drive for 3 hours to Tianjin City.

    The historical Huangyaguan Section of the Great Wall is the venue of the annual International Huangyaguan Great Wall Marathon Race. It is noted for highly-demanding running trails with exhausting ascents, steep descents, and over 3,700 steps. Lucky for you, your hike starts at Taipingzhai and endures for 3 hours on a 4-km trail.

    After the hike, you will be back to the mountain foot and stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

     

    - Smart Tips:

  • The guesthouse will be a safe and clean one, but with nothing luxury to expect.
  • You will have a late lunch today, so bring some snacks with you for the hike.

    • Meals: Breakfast
    • Hotels: Guesthouse in Simatai New Village

    Rise up early and we will have breakfast in the gusethouse. Later, your private driver will take you to Gubeikou Village, at the foot of the Gubeikou Section of the Great Wall. Our 2-hour hiking trip will take you to some photographic places.

    The section is made up of two parts: Panlong Mountain and Wohu Mountain, literally meaning crouching dragon and hidden tiger, just as that film. Panlong Mountain is comparatively much hiker-friendly and safer and our hike starts here.

    You will reach a military zone, where we need to take a detour down the valley and start another phase of hiking towards the Jinshanling Section of the Great Wall.

    After the hike, your driver will take you back to Gubeikou Village.

    This morning after breakfast, we will be the first one to step on the Jinshanling Section of the Great Wall. Good chance to photo the rugged and magnificent wonder in an early daylight.

    Simatai section is now closed and your Beijing tour guide will you to Simatai West, an even less-visited and much wilder place. This part of the Great Wall is isolated, bleak and wild, just a perfect stop for your Great Wall hiking adventure.

    Your hike will end before noon and be back to Beijing downtown for a hotpot lunch. After the lunch, your Beijing tour guide will take you for a foot massage (fee included), which is just thoughtfully relaxing after 4 days of hiking. Be back to your hotel in Beijing.

    After breakfast at the guesthouse, we will drive to Xizhazi Village. The village is the starting point of today's hike.

    Comparatively, today's hike at the Jiankou Section of the Great Wall won't cover too long a distance yet it will take you up and down the steep ridgeline. This lies the challenge and chance for you to admire the untouched, bleak and astonishing beauty that catches photographers' heart.

    Have picnic lunch at the Great Wall. Stay at a local guesthouse for tonight.

    Your Beijing tour guide and driver will take you back to downtown for a hotpot lunch. After that, you will enjoy a 20-minute walk at the Bird's Nest and Water Cube. A foot massage will be a good ending of your Great Wall hiking trip.
