Great Wall Hiking

In the Beijing Municipality, the Great Wall expands over 630km. While about 50km of the Great Wall has been developed for tourism, at scenic spots such as Badaling and Simatai, the majority of the left is left completely untouched, yet extraordinarily well preserved.

ChinaHiking will guide you to these most remote and long deserted parts of the Great Wall of China. By staying away from the tourist hot spots, you will avoid the large crowds and explore the untouched, wild sections of the Great Wall, without another tour in sight.

Hike 8km on the wild and restored Jinshanling Great Wall and take your perfect sunset pictures from the Jinshanling General Tower. A perfect trip combining the rolling hills of the wild Jinshanling Great Wall with the mighty fortress of the restored Jinshanling Great Wall. Read more.
