Common Questions Travelers Ask Us

1. Can anyone do the Great Wall hiking?

Customers from 5 years old to senior couples in their 70’s have hiked on the Great Wall with us. So the key factors are how fit you are and the weather. Some rugged and steep sections are challenging, but your private guide is patient and if you need more time then so be it! Free trekking poles are also available.

2. What’s the trail condition like?

There are paths, steps, trails covered with fallen leaves, firm sections, brick sections to a few sections with loose bricks and dusty areas with small stones, to partly repaired or restored to original and crumbling. Generally, the condition is a pleasant surprise to most customers. We recommend you use walking boots that offer support and protection from loose bricks or rocks that your feet might kick. The sole is best to be non-slip in case of rain.
