Camping on the Great Wall
Did a hike of the wild Great Wall, which was an amazing experience. Highly recommended if you want to get away from the crowds. Many thanks to my guide, Oliver, who was first class. Hiked, climbed, had a bbq and camped on the Jiankou section of the Great Wall. The views were serene. An unforgettable memory! more
Itinerary Quick Look
Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests. The time frame is just for your reference. It could be different due to the traffic on the day.
Your guide will contact you the day before departure and tell you the exact meeting time and place. You'll be picked up by private car or van, and then head to Tiananmen Square.
If you book a flight layover trip, we can pick you up from the airport and start the tour according to your schedule.
Start your tour with the Tian'anmen Square. There is a lot of history to tell about Tian'anmen Square. The famous buildings in the square have witnessed many important events in China.
Walk from the square to the Forbidden City. Discover the deep secrets of the emperors and concubines during the Ming and Qing dynasties in 12 places, while other group tours only visit 6–8 places. The walking is graded as being easy, but it is for about 2 hours (2 kilometers).
Head for the Great Wall from downtown of Beijing.
Have a rest and enjoy some delicious Beijing dishes for lunch at our well-selected local restaurant. Your guide will help you order the dishes according to your preferences.
In the afternoon, we will hike on the Mutianyu Great Wall. This section is ranked top on TripAdvisor among all the Great Wall sections due to its picturesque scenery and beautifully restored architecture.
In order to save your time, we will arrange a round-trip cable car to ascend and descend the wall, instead of spending about 40 minutes on steps... twice.
Your personal guide will walk with you on the Wall to give you some information and to help you if you want photos with the Wall.
