Detailed Itinerary

This 15km hike is one of our harder ones, but it is also one of the most beautiful ones. This Great Wall trek starts at a tiny farm village. It will take us a good half hour climb through the fields to get to the Wall. The rest of the trekking will be on top of the Great Wall. This Yangbian Great Wall is really the beaten path and connects the Border Defense Great Wall with General Xu Great Wall. If you are in a good condition, love hiking and would like to see some excellent wild Great Wall, then this is your trip! Have a look at the pictures and you will understand what we are talking about

Level 3: Strong

We rate this hike a level 2 as the day hike starts with steep climbing on the Great Wall where it can be slippery sometimes. You should be all right if you have a normal to good physical condition, as we never rush during our hikes.
