Enjoy a private full-day your that follows the eastern section of the Great Wall of China at Jiankou, heading towards Mutianyu. This remote section of the Great Wall offers great views and a firsthand experience of this famous monument, yet does not require the climbing expertise of the western section. With your guide, walk towards Zheng Bei Lou, then go east to Mutianyu, taking a moderately challenging walk of up to five hours for a memorable experience of the Great Wall. Have lunch in Mutianyu afterwards before returning to Beijing.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your centrally located hotel in Beijing and spend around 2 hours on the air conditioned tour bus to get to Jiankou Great Wall.

When you arrive at Xizhazi, the foot of Jiankou Great Wall, there is another one-hour physically demanding hike uphill to reach Zhengbeikou Tower. The difficulty of the walk from Xizhazi to Zhengbeilou is moderate for most of people. The initial trail from Xizhazi is a little bit hard to follow with not much of infrastructure. From Zhengbeilou, you'll see all the parts of Jiankou Great Wall and the view is magnificent.

You'll hike to the east of Zheng Bei Lou, heading for Mutianyu, instead of the west, which is the most difficult and dangerous section of Jiankou Great Wall. The entire hike from Zheng Bei Lou (mid-part at Jiankou) to Mutianyu covers 3-5 hours, over approximately 6.2 miles. If you are looking for a quiet section of the Great Wall, this is the right one for you. You might hardly meet any tourists on the way, maybe a few small groups.

Lunch will be served after the hiking (another 20min drive from Mutianyu when you get down). Lunch consists of Chinese food and different dishes, with rice as the main food. After lunch, you will be transferred back to downtown Beijing.

A perfect day

We booked the private tour from Jiankou to Mutianyu. It was great to see the contrast between the two sections of the wall with barely anyone in sight for the first 5km. Stunning views, great guide and delicious lunch!
