Overview

This is the most classic hiking route on the Great Wall, taking about 5 hours to complete a distance of 10 km (6 miles) from Jiankou section to Mutianyu section. Challenge the most precipitous Jiankou section of the Great Wall, wild, weathered and primitive. Photographers and hikers love this section, which is also the iconic image of the Great Wall as you can see in many photo albums. Mutianyu section of the Great Wall boasts the most beautiful scenery of all the sections. It is restored and tourist-friendly. Hiking the whole route is like traveling through time from primitive to modern, presenting three phases of the Great Wall with striking contrast from wild, half-repaired to totally repaired.

Reviews

Wild Wall is Wonderful
Jessica M, 25-10-2019
I did this hike with my husband and my parents who are in their mid 50’s and very active. Our guide was Rico and we had a spectacular time! He and the driver were prompt in the morning to pick-up at our hotel and the day’s expectations and schedule were made clear from the beginning. Rico continually checked with our group to make sure the pace he was hiking was good for everyone. The Jiankou hike is easily doable in athletic shoes as long as they have some grip/tread. This hike is a great way to see both the beauty of the wild and restored Great Wall. If you have trouble going down many stairs or with your knees I would suggest taking the tram down at Mutianyu, otherwise there are a ton of stairs. After our hike we had lunch at a local restaurant, who served really great food. We learned a lot from Rico who was very willing to answer any questions about the Great Wall and generally about Chinese culture!
A must do if visiting Beijing!

I had an amazing hike with my father, and it just made it better that it was with our tour guide Dennis. I can highly recommend him to anyone. Overall this is a must do if visiting Beijing!
Excellent Access To the Wall

This was an excellent tour with a guide that knew the way. The hike up was really long but worth it to see wilder and unrestored portions of the wall. The restored portions with its Disney-esque themepark vibe was interesting to see by contrast. Getting to the wall like this is really only feasible with a guide like this. Going up in the fall in the best time as it's cooler, fewer crowds outside the festival days and weekends, and the leaves are turning.
The Wild Wall takes your breath away

Great tour, you get to experience the Great Wall of China without tourists. The Wild Wall is simply incredible. Can also recommend the guide, Bob Chen, he was very knowledgeable and it made the hike up smooth with all his stories and facts about China.
Best hike at the Great Wall!!!
Courtneymj92, 18-09-2019
BEST HIKE EVER!! Highly recommend for anyone looking to hike for a day at the Great Wall. This tour allows you to see the untouched portions of the wall where trees and plants were covering the remains of the wall. This is an unforgettable and unique way to see the Great Wall. There were several times we were the only people in sight and the views were breathtaking. After the untouched portions, we made our way to the retouched section where more tourists were. The views were equally as amazing, but I cannot stress enough how awesome it was to see that after hiking through the wild untouched portions. After finishing our hike, we had a delicious Chinese lunch nearby. Overall, it was the perfect day spent at the Great Wall.

We were accompanied by Bob Chen, an incredible tour guide! He provided history about the Great Wall and Beijing, answered any of our questions, and was the best photographer. Bob also was very accommodating and waited as long as we wanted at certain sections. We loved Bob and would without a doubt book this tour again!!!
