Stop At: The Great wall of Jiankou, Beijing China

Your private tour guide/driver will meet you at your hotel lobby in the morning, and take you to Jiankou Great wall by private transfer (1.5 hours). Xizhazi Village (altitude 587m/1,926ft) is the start point of this hiking route towards Zhengbeilou, one of the ruined towers on the Wall (altitude 830m/2,723ft). On the half way to Zhengbeilou, you will have a short walk to a broken tower where you can capture the best scenery of Jiankou. You will take a break here and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

After a short break, keep going to Zhengbeilou. You will be able to see the spectacular panorama of Jiankou and its basin terrain. Then, you continue hike towards to Mutianyu, and there are a few vertical climbs and scrambles along the way. Due to the overgrown bushes, you will have to walk along the Wall edge.

After passing through many towers along the way, you’ll reach a precipitous section - Ox Horn Edge (altitude 1,011m / 3,317ft). Take a forest detour from this point for another 10 minutes, you will go back to Jiankou again. After a short walk, you will reach the Mutianyu section.

Here are the 3 choices of going down from Great Wall:
• Take cable car (own pay) down at Tower 14 to the exit .
• Continue walking to Tower 10 where you can get off Mutianyu then walk down the hill trail to reach the exit, (1.5 hours)
• Continue walking to Tower 6 then go down by slideway/liftchair (own pay). Since the track is very easy to follow, your guide / driver will meet you at the exit of slideway/liftchair. You can enjoy the additional hike on your own.

After hiking, you will enjoy a tasty lunch (optional) in a local restaurant nearby, then head back to Beijing.

We booked a driver through Viator to do Jiankou to Mutianyu section of the Great Wall on Christmas Day. Once booked, James contacted almost immediately us to confirm our pick up time and location via email. He messaged us the day before our trip to confirm again and to warn us that the weather might make conditions dangerous due to snow/ice.
Zuo our driver picked us up and we drove toward jiankou. Despite us being worried about the language barrier in terms of arranging a pick up point etc, Zuo communicated expertly through phone translation and proved to be very humorous and entertained us greatly on our journey. When we hit icy/snowy roads, he safely navigated tricky parts, before making the decision to alter our drop off point for safety reasons. Although it cut off a little bit of our walk, we were more than happy with the new point and understood how to communicate with him when we reached the other end. We had an amazing walk on the snowy, wild section of the wall, seeing only a handful of people for the first few hours. Incredible views, steep bits to climb up and slip down, a brilliant adventure despite our trainers not being the best footwear for quite deep snow (possibly crampons would have been useful!). When we got Mutianyu however, it was very clear that this was the tourist section which was a very different experience from the wild section. After a couple of texts to Zuo, we climbed down from the wall and got a shuttle bus to where he was waiting for us. The walk took us about 5 hours, but included lots of stops for views, photos, snacks and working out how to scramble up steep bits. He provided us with water when we reached the end and made sure we were comfortable for our 2 hour drive home. Thanks to James for organising and to Zuo for helping make our Christmas Day trip one to remember - we’d love to return. Highly recommended, an amazing experience!!
