What to Expect

Although Simatai Great Wall is a little bit far from Beijing downtown compared with other sections of Great Wall around, it is still a place treasured by many people all over the world. Since 1987, Simatai Great Wall was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List as it is the only architectural relics of Ming Dynasty which is well preserved in its original appearance. Miraculously, after going through winds, rains and even bombardment, the wall still stands solid here over hundreds of years. Dilapidated towers and steps did not weaken the beauty of the wall, instead, they are the symbol of its strength and vitality.

Simatai Great Wall

Another glamour of Simatai is its steepness. The wall winds up and down on cliff edge, you may feel dizzy if looking down. It was a natural and elaborate design that soldiers can attack enemies easily by taking advantage of commanding elevation and steep mountains.


On the mountain foot, a lake in azure blue lies quietly with ripples shining brightly under sunlight. After a taste of majestic Great Wall, tender winds will refresh your mind and increase your emotional well-being.

Many hotels inside the town ensure free entry for their customers. You may consult your hotel for details. Yes, you can rent at Baqi Huiguan (八旗会馆).

Day trip starting at noon from Beijing
Is it possible to take the 1200 bus from Beijing and return on the 2100 bus from Gubei Water town on the same day? Will the bus be crowded? What are the alternate options if there is not enough space in the bus?

Currently, the bus departs from Dongzhimen at 09:00, 13:00 and from Gubei Water Town at 12:00, 17:00 and the duration for a single trip takes two hours. I'm afraid your plan is unfeasible.

Transfer included?
Hello. Does this price cover any transfers from Beijing to Gubei Shuizhen? Or does it just cover entrance fees? Thank you.

Yes, you can. The water town is just under the Great Wall, and you can take a cable car up to the Great Wall.

It is hard as the town is a little far from Beijing. It takes at least 3 hours for a single journey.
