Thrill-seekers will love this private Great Wall trekking tour that takes you from the wild, unrestored Jiankou section to the well-known stretch at Mutianyu. Discover the Great Wall in its renovated and unrenovated states as you hike with a private guide, following a route that would be almost impossible to find independently. Tour includes lunch and round-trip door-to-door transportation.
  • Take the Great Wall at your own pace with a private trekking guide
  • Trek the unrestored, wild, and beautiful Jiankou section to Mutianyu
  • Enjoy water, snacks, and a local restaurant lunch
  • Relax with door-to-door round-trip transportation from Beijing
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, travel in climate-controlled comfort to Xishanzi village in Huairou country. Hike cross-country to reach the Jiankou Great Wall, and climb the tower for sweeping views of the steep sections to the west and east. Hike to the Niujijiaobian, an extremely steep and dangerous section, where your guide shows you an alternative route. Break for snacks and catch your breath before you hike along the wall to the start of the renovated Great Wall at Mutianyu. You walk several hours from here before enjoying lunch in a local Chinese restaurant and returning to your hotel.

Fantastic day out with Peter. Great weather, superb views on a quiet unspoilt part of the Great Wall. Private driver and guide highly recommended. Our guide Peter spoke good English and was able to provide much information on the history of the Wall. He looked after us
