All Inclusive Private Trekking Tour from Jiankou To Mutianyu Great Wall

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Jiankou Great Wall is located in Badaohe village in the northwest of Huairou County in Beijing, about 30 kilometers away from Huairou County Town. It is also situated at Bohai Town (North part at Badaohe, while south part at Bohai). Jiankou Great Wall connects to Mutianyu's East side of the wall, and it's joined the Dazhenyu Great Wall in the West. Since the mountain here is higher and steeper, this section becomes more winding and varied. "Jiankou", is translated as "Arrow Knot" in English as the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow knot. This is a private group with a professional trekking guide, and you will have so much fun from this Great Wall hiking tour.

Please miss the weekend when you book it because the Mutianyu Great wall is getting busy and busy at the weekend and holiday.
  • Take the Great Wall at your own pace with a private trekking guide
  • Trek the unrestored, wild, and beautiful Jiankou section to Mutianyu
  • Enjoy water, snacks, and a local restaurant lunch
  • Relax with door-to-door round-trip transportation from Beijing
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, travel in climate-controlled comfort to Xishanzi village in Huairou country. Hike cross-country for an hour or so to reach the Jiankou Great Wall, and climb the tower for sweeping views of the steep sections to the west and east. Hike to the Niujijiaobian, an extremely steep and dangerous section, where your guide will show you an alternative route. Break for snacks and catch your breath before you hike along the wall to the start of the renovated Great Wall at Mutianyu. You will walk several hours from here before enjoying lunch in a local Chinese restaurant and returning to your hotel.

Great day out on a private trek. James was an excellent guide and even had a backpack full of snickers for energy. Really good lunch after the walk. Thanks again James.

The first stage climbing a trail straight up the side of the mountain was a bit tough and you would want to be reasonably fit. The walk along the wall was pretty comfortable.
