Some Useful Tips for Hiking Wild Great Wall

While traveling off the beaten path to the Great Wall at Jinshanling section, there are some useful tips worth keeping in mind before you go for the hiking.

Do bring some bottles of water, sunglasses and a backpack; female travelers should not wear high heels as the paths are really hard to walk; do not forget to bring your camera as breathtaking views are all over the place; it is highly recommended to hire a local guide for those first time visitors to Jinshanling as this section of the Great Wall can be really dangerous to hike.

Impressive and Well Organized Great Wall Hiking Tour

Because of the popularity of the Great Wall, we decided to visit it in limited time we had in Beijing. We contact with a local Beijing travel agency, it offered us patient service to help our Great Wall tour according to needs we provided. It is said that the Badaling Great Wall always crowded with many people almost every day. So we picked three sections including Mutianyu and Jinshanling. The real trip advisor told us the three sections have their own characteristics, they are the representative sections of the Great Wall in Beijing.

Hiking Mutianyu Great Wall

First day to Mutianyu section, we were picked up on time. We rested in the Jinshanling Great Wall hotel, then second day, we climbed the Jinshanling. We walked from Jinshanling to Simatai, because they are connected. Mutianyu section is maintained better than Jinshanling and Simatai, but Jinshanling have the heavy history atmosphere. As really as they said, the three sections were less tourists and fit for hiking. You have enough time to enjoy the beautiful and mysterious scenery and views, and take pictures.

There is no doubt about the scenery of the Great Wall, but what made us so happy during this tour was the service offered by the Beijing tour operator and the tour guide. The attitude of the driver and tour guide were very good, they told us many matters need attention in the process of hiking, and they were very efficient in our hiking tour. The excellent tour guide with complete fluency in English friendly and caring attitude were absolutely impressive.

All were very friendly, informative, and very happy to do everything they could to make our tour the best we could have expected. We cannot say enough about BeijingLandscapes.com and recommend them to anyone interested in travel to China. Thank you again!

Great Experience to Explore the Great Wall

Not long ago, I just came back from Beijing on my vacation. I got the reservation from beijinglandscapes.com, the local tour agency in China. The whole tour was just well organized and goes very smoothly from the start till the end. In the first day, tour guide picked us up at the hotel in the morning and after that directly transferred you to Panlongshan Great Wall, one section of the Gubeikou Great Wall.

Beautiful Sunset at the Great Wall

Gubeikou Great Wall has fewer tourists, still keep its original feature with less rebuilt structures. It is one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Wall with stunning green sceneries around. I love the Great Wall style and design, because it still keeps its early buildings, I could enjoy it much the surroundings. During the tour, tour guide always keep us up to hear what she said about information and history about the Wall.

After finished explore Gubeikou, we had a traditional Chinese lunch and headed to the Jinshanling Great Wall, next destination of that day. Continue the journey climbed up the west section of the Wall and back to our hotel which located not far from there. The hotel was nice and offers good service during our stay. Overall, the hotel was comfortable and clean. We could have a good rest there. The weather and air were also so good and fresh.

In the second day, we could visit the west part of Jinshanling Great Wall and did hike it for about several hours. After the tour, we surely did feel tired, it was a long journey but all was worth it..

In conclusion, all that I got was worth every cent I spend. We did explore and discover two famous section of the Wall in 2 days, and that was memorable! All I could say was I thanked you for a great service that you give to us. Great Wall was magnificent same as my imagination before I visit it. Since that time, I could not believe how people would build that huge Wall in the top of the hill surround by mountains. Great Wall is a must attraction to visit in Beijing! Amazing!
