Upcoming hikes and trips
Ready for a great hike? Every week we run hikes and trips to the Great Wall, hills, mountains, forests, and villages around Beijing, with a wide range of hikes that are suitable for casual walkers as well as the super-fit.
Level 1 / From 1,620 RMB – Ancient towns and forts, local culture, and the 300-year old local tradition that sees molten iron being flung against the city walls in lieu of a fireworks display!
Level 3+ / 400 RMB – Hike hill trails to a small village where we'll find a path up to a seldom-visited stretch of Great Wall, and then follow the wall towards the Little West Lake, a reservoir in the hills of Huairou District.
Level 5 / 380 RMB – Walk up and down valleys and over hills on the way from a small valley village over to the Ming Tombs area, passing by one of the closed tombs on the way to the huge hill we'll climb to get to the Heavenly Lake. 17km with more than 1,000m of elevation gain on the way to the end.
Level 3 / 400 RMB – Begin with a stroll through chestnut orchards on the way to the Great Wall, then follow the wall up along a big ridge, finishing up with stunning views of the Little West Lake.
Level 4+ / 500 RMB – Walk from Gubeikou to Jinshanling, following stretches of restored and unrestored Great Wall and taking a detour through the pretty farmland that surrounds Hemp Village, finishing all the way over at the eastern end of Jinshanling.
Beijing Hikers operates trips to many places in China – famous scenic areas, as well as those obscure and less well-known. We take care of all the organisation, leaving you free to enjoy the scenery without stress.
