All Inclusive Private Hiking Tour from Huanghuacheng Water Great Wall to Xishuiyu

If you’d like to beat the crowds and experience the Great Wall as guards did in ancient times, this is the Great Wall hiking trip for you. Starting from the less-visited Huanghuacheng Great Wall, you’ll follow the Wall through spectacular wild and watery landscapes with few other visitors. Led by an experienced hiking professional, you’ll cover both restored and unrestored sections on this private tour.

What to Expect

Meet your private guide in your hotel lobby for the drive to the Huanghuacheng section of the Great Wall, about 37 miles (60 kilometers) from Beijing. Named for the yellow flowers that bloom in midsummer, it’s been known as the Great Wall Under the Water since the Xishuiyu dam submerged several sections in 1974.

You’ll follow a mountain path to the steep and towering Great Wall, with no parapets on either side, and hike through some of the most spectacular landscapes to be found around Beijing. Enjoy plenty of stops for photos. 

The hike lasts between five and six hours, and your guide provides snacks if you get hungry before your included Chinese lunch. Once you’re done, you’ll be presented with a certificate and hop back in your climate-controlled vehicle for the drive back to Beijing.

Incredible beyond belief!

We had James as our guide. He arrived with a professional driver in a very nice car at our hotel exactly on time. Even communicated with the hotel about our plans beforehand so they informed us upon checkin. Called the night before to confirm. English...More

Hi! I don't know. The first stage of the hike is quite demanding. FUrther ahead, some places are slippery or very steep.
