Your Beijing tour guide will pick you up at 10am for a 1 1/2 hour drive to Huanghuacheng. After lunch you will start hiking for about 4 hours on the Huanghuacheng Great Wall (about 7km). In the late afternoon, you will arrive in Xishuiyu Village and set camp to stay overnight by a peaceful lake.
After enjoying a sunrise in one of the watchtowers an easy hike along the Great Wall gives you appetite for a simple but tasty breakfast at the camp site. There is some free time to explore the village before starting back to Beijing. On the way, we will stop to visit Dingling Mausoleum, Sacred Way and the mausoleum of Emperor Wan Li, which is one of the thirteen imperial tombs of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). After enjoying lunch in a local restaurant you will arrive in Beijing at around 3pm.
