Introduction:

One-day climbing trip at Jiankou might not be enough for you. This trip from Jiankou to Mutianyu is well-customized for guests who would like to enjoy the sunset and starry night at Jiankou, and the trekking experience from Jiankou to Mutianyu.


You’ll have the chance to enjoy the completely original part of Jiankou Great Wall in this trip, including the steepest and most difficult part. The adventure of Jiankou Great Wall climbing and camping might be enthusiastically written in your autobiography in the future. Meanwhile, we will shoot the whole process of the trip and offer you the video file in a memory stick.


Camping at Zhengbeilou at Jiankou Great Wall is rather different than that at Huanghuacheng Great Wall. You’ll find yourself completely on an island surrounding by the ocean of gray cliffs. Here and there, you’ll see the clearings zigzagging on the mountain, that is the trail of Jiankou Great Wall.


Walking from Jiankou to Muitanyu is much easier and safer for most first Great Wall hikers. The trails at wild Jiankou is hard to follow. Plants, grasses and large bushes grow here leaving only small paths to walk through. Starting out at Jiankou will leave the hard part behind once reaching the top. Meanwhile, you will enjoy a rare pleasant occasion with the wild lives such as snails, butterflies, lizards, millipedes, etc., which you could hardly find in city life.


This is a terrific and adventurous trip that is fun for challengers! It includes both unrestored, steep, and rugged Wild Wallalong with tastefully restored wall, making it a perfect hike for comparison and understanding more about the true Great Wall. This tour is an amateur photographer’s dream as well. Maybe you can sell the photographs from your trip to National Geographic! As an unrestored section, Jiankou remains half ruined, wild and untouched. It has a wild beauty and ruggedness that cannot be described unless you visit it.


Mutianyu is fully restored, well-knowned for the breath-takingly scenery in all the seasons, with many stairs, and some are quite steep. For most people the worst part at Mutianyu is to walk down from tower 20 to 19. The section between the two towers is 70 to 80 degrees in height with more than 440 vertical steps. If you are the step master, this is the right place for you. If you have hip, ankles or knee issues be sure to watch the steps.


However, weather conditions can make the hike a lot tougher than what you have expected. For example, in winter, frozen snow and ice make the Wall difficult to walk through.


Otherwise, children and aged people are not recommended to Jiankou. Instead, Simatai, Jinshanling and Mutianyu are good alternatives.


Group size over 7 please send us an E-mail to make further communication and negotiation.
