Hiking and Camping on the Great Wall of China

From JanandTonyGetSmart    Nov 07 2018
This was an experience of a lifetime. We were collected in Beijing and driven a few hours away to a less touristy part of the wall. We hiked the wall for the rest of the day and then camped next to the wall for the night then hiked back to our pick up point for the journey home the next morning. The food was sensational, the guides helpful and k...

We had the Great Wall to ourselves!

From Anna D    Nov 07 2018
I usually hate taking guided tours anywhere, but this trip was one I would recommend to everyone. I expected to be fighting through tons of tourists to visit the Great Wall, but we saw unrestored parts of the wall where there were no people there except for our group. It was amazing to experience China like that! The trip was also well organized...

Execellent view and experience!

From Alan W    Nov 07 2018
Throughout my 10 day trip to China, this has to be THE highlight of all my tours. To summarise:
- The whole tour was well organised and professional. There are no sidetracking or swindling of any kind to get you to purchase anything. It was just purely a hiking tour. (It's a rarity among tours in China) And the lunch was local AND delicious too!...

Awesome hike at Gubeikou

From Compass01824105441    Oct 31 2018
The 2D1N hike went better than i have expected; our guides (Dan and Jaime) were very experienced and patient, managing a group of 14 of us. Lunch and dinner provided were great, we were simply overwhelmed with the variety and great taste of all the dishes. It was an unforgettable experience and i am glad to have chosen Chinahiking for my trip to...

Great Day Trip from Beijing!

From Travis C    Oct 30 2018
My wife and I did the day hike for Jiankou to Mutianyu and had an absolute blast. China Hiking arranges all of the details, and their experienced guide explains history as you go. Breathtaking views. Can’t imagine a better way to see the Great Wall

Wonderful hike from the Gubeikou to Jinshanling Wall!

From ArjanVR87 Haarlem, The Netherlands    Oct 29 2018
The highlight of my trip to Beijing? It definitely was the 2 day hike with China Hiking, including camping besides the Wall. Who wouldn’t want to wake up with the most beautiful of China?

Thanks everyone for organizing this beautiful, delicious (the food at the farmershouses was absolutely delicious!), funny and interesting trip to the Great W...

From _liznielson Brisbane, Australia    Oct 25 2018
My husband and I, along with 3 other travellers were guided capably by J.I. J.I. had excellent historical knowledge of the Wall and its construction. The scenery was spectacular and temperature perfect for hiking. On the first day we did not see any other hikers. The hike was a good balance - with some quite challenging sections, but we were nev...

Gubeikou to Jinshanling Great Wall Camping 2 Days

From Boschvertrekt veldhoven    Oct 22 2018
As soon as I had read about the option to hike and sleep on the great wall we signed up for it. Even though it was months in advance. We met our guide John at the metrostation, and together with Heidi and baby Rohan we went to Gubeikou. We were welcomed warmly at the farmhouse where we had lunch. A so delicious lunch, too much actually. Then we ...

Best experience in Beijing

From charlifell Phnom Penh, Cambodia    Oct 18 2018
A fantastically organised, unforgettable experience in China. JI is a brilliant guide who feels more like a friend and his knowledge of the history of China and state of modern China is absolutely fascinating. Cannot recommend this highly enough

Amazing Experience on the Great Wall!

From fromNYCtoanywhere New York City, New York    Oct 18 2018
Our main draw to Beijing was to visit the Great Wall and we wanted to find a tour that visited a “non-touristy” area of this historical masterpiece. After some research, I found ChinaHiking on a blog and decided to book a 2D1N camping trip for my partner and I. What a great choice!! J.I. and Dan were fun and easygoing guides and made sure everyo...
