Jiankou Great Wall is located in Badaohe village in the northwest of Huairou County in Beijing, about 30 kilometers away from Huairou County Town. It is also situated at Bohai Town (North part at Badaohe, while south part at Bohai). Jiankou Great Wall connects to Mutianyu's East side of the wall, and it's joined 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 Knot" in English as the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow knot. This is a private group with a professional trekking guide, and you will have so much fun from this Great Wall hiking tour.

Please miss the weekend when you book it because the Mutianyu Great wall is getting busy and busy at the weekend and holiday.

Great day out on a private trek. James was an excellent guide and even had a backpack full of snickers for energy. Really good lunch after the walk. Thanks again James.

It was one of the best experiences I ever had. PETER, the tour guide was super careful in each details. He made the difference to be something unique. The Great Wall is amazing and speechless. Totally worth it. You need to go there and if you could ask for Peter, do it.
