Friendly Tips:
  • The hiking from west section of Simatai Great Wall to Jinshanling Great Wall is moderate to most people. However, there are also steep stairs and unrepaired sections, so it is more suitable for adventurous young and middle-aged travelers. With few tourists and beautiful scenery, Jinshanling can be counted as a paradise for hikers and shutterbugs. If you love outdoor activities, you must not miss it.
  • The hiking route is about 6 kilometers (4 miles), which usually takes 3 hours. You are suggested to wear comfortable shoes and the sunscreen products are necessary if you hike in the summer time.
  • On the day of Jingshanling Great Wall walking tour, you are suggested to have a hearty breakfast at your hotel as there is no decent restaurant nearby the Great Wall. We will also make a short stop at a roadside store for you to buy some snacks on the way to the site. In addition, hiking on the Great Wall is an energy-consuming activity, so we suggest that you drink water often. We will provide you with unlimited bottled purified water, and you can bring some when getting off the van.
14:00 Drive Back & Hotel Drop-off
Your Great Wall walking tour at Jingshanling comes to an end and we will drive you back to the hotel. Hope you have a wonderful tour with us!

    All points of the trip were well-organized, and all the staff was professional during our Beijing 2 days tour to Mutianyu Great Wall. I especially recommend the Forbidden City among so many awesome attractions we visited. It had many things to see and was indeed very magnificent. Our guide Candy was awesome. She took the time for us to ask questions and tried her best to make the trip fun. We will certainly use your company the next time we visit China!

    First of all, the travel consultant offered very good advice before the trip, giving us all the right information needed to make sensible choices. We were very extremely happy with the sightseeing and hiking arranged for us during the 2 days Great Wall walking trip. The Forbidden City was grand as well as the Great Wall. I left many unforgettable memories.

    We had a fantastic time on our 2 days Beijing tour. It was very well organized and suited us well. Our guide Candy knew a lot of knowledge about scenic spots we visited and experienced the life of Beijing. She was also good at teaching the history of China in her own special way. We have taken many other guided tours over the years and can honestly say that this tour was among the best. We will recommend TravelChianGuide and Candy if any of my friends plan to tour Beijing!

    The 2 Beijing tour to Forbidden City was a good experience. Everything was satisfactory and worked out happily. But it is better to have a good rest before setting up the trip…

    My 2 days Beijing tour to Great Wall went very smoothly due to the efforts of the consultant Amber. I had a great time during the trip because the guide Lily was very attentive to my schedule and information about each location visited. The splendid Forbidden City and Great Wall impressed me so much. I would definitely browse TCG Website for future tours.

    I was happy with the Beijing 2 day tour. TCG provided exceptional service and arranged a very responsible guide for us. Beijing is fantastic with a profound history and culture. There were many other scenic spots I hadn’t visited yet and I would certainly return back.
