- Hiking from the Jinshanling Great Wall to Simatai Great Wall (4 hours): Jinshanling Great Wall section is an ideal place for hiking enthusiasts to test themselves against its steep gradients and to enjoy the landscape. Jinshanling to Simatai section is a distance of about 10 km. Only partly restored, it's less crowded, and provides a unique view of the Wall, watchtowers and magnificent scenery. A flying fox (optional) operates at the end of the hike to take hikers to the bottom. This provides a spectacular view of the scenery around and the reservoir under the cable car. Comfortable walking shoes and protection from the weather are a necessity.

Today's Activities: East section of the Simatai Great Wall

- East section of the Simatai Great Wall (4 hours): Simatai, a section of the Great Wall of China located in the north of Miyun County, 120 km northeast of Beijing. Simatai Great Wall is one of the few to retain the original features of the Ming dynasty Great Wall. Simatai Great Wall has 16 watch towers on the wall which snakes the steep mountain ridge. The 13th-16th towers are forbidden to hikers due to their steepness and treacherousness. For those less adventurous, the cable car is available to get to an open place close to the 8th tower (White Cloud Tower), then climb up or climb down the Great Wall, or alternatively you may choose to take the cable car back to the ground. Most people prefer to hike up the Great Wall, then take the cable car down.
