As Great Wall hiking tours go, this offers the best of both worlds—not to mention a route that’s almost impossible to access unless you speak Chinese. Hike the unrestored, untouched Jiankou Great Wall, with its soaring views and ancient ruins, to the well-known Great Wall at Mutianyu. Plus, a private tour means you receive the undivided attention of your guide.

What to Expect
Expect an early start for this full-day Great Wall hiking tour. Your knowledgeable guide greets you at your central Beijing hotel for the journey to Jiankou, where your Great Wall hike begins. The twists and turns of this unrestored and less-visited stretch of wall make it perfect for photographers. As it winds along sheer mountain ridges, the wall offers new panoramas at every corner, while its ruins and imperfections are shockingly atmospheric.  Spend ample time hiking this route, which is considered the most precipitous and beautiful stretch of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall, to Mutianyu. Along the way, your private guide explains the long history of the wall’s construction. If you enjoy a mild physical challenge combined with a cultural experience, this is the tour for you.
