Level 4 / 380 RMB – A tough hike up and down unrestored Great Wall, peaking by the Chinese Knot, a section where three lines of Great Wall come together. Note: if you're not comfortable with making a short-but-steep climb on somewhat tricky terrain, you might not find this hike an enjoyable experience.
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 3 / 380 RMB – Follow an easy and flat dirt trail through fields and orchards before reaching the Great Wall and making a big climb up to a lookout point high on a ridge, with a panoramic view of the countryside your reward for the hard work getting up there.
Level 4 / 450 RMB – A tough hike that follows the Great Wall from Jiankou's General's Tower all the way over to the Mutianyu Great Wall, starting on unrestored wall and finishing on a restored section.
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.
