Jinshanling Great Wall

At Jinshanling, spectacular views go hand in hand with the spectacular feat of engineering that is the Great Wall of China. This one day tour takes you on an exhilarating 3 hour hike along the picturesque stretch of the Great Wall at Jinshanling, where the mighty monument threads its way over the steep and rugged hillsides.

Details

5:40-7:00 a.m. Beijing downtown hotel pickup

10:00 a.m. Jinshanling Great Wall (Jīnshānlǐng Chángchéng, 金山岭长城) (about 3 hours)

The Jinshanling section of the Great Wall is well-known as the starting point of s 10.5 km (6.5 mi) hike along the wall that ends at Simatai. While the initial section of the wall has been restored, the wall deteriorates as it approaches Simatai. Jinshanling has had less restoration work done on it than other parts of the wall such as Simatai, Badaling and Mutianyu and is popular among travelers who want to get an "authentic" experience away from the tourist hordes who flock to sections of the wall that are within closer proximity to Beijing. The hike between Jinshanling and Simatai is truly amazing. The wall snakes over the mountains and the views on the hike are spectacular. Along the way, there are numerous watchtowers and beacon towers of various constructions and states of disrepair to explore. For those that don't feel like climbing, an optional cable car can be taken at your own expense.

1:00 p.m. Lunch at a local restaurant

6:30 p.m. We will drop you off at Dongzhimen Metro Station.
