What to Expect

Day 1: Jiankou Great Wall

Stop At: The Great wall of Jiankou-The Great Wall Alternative, Beijing China
Jiankou Great Wall hike is stunning from the first step and the higher we get the better the views over the surrounding mountains gets.
We follow an uphill trail through the bush for about 1 hour until we reach the Great Wall at the second beacon tower. During this first part of this hike, we will ascend about 500 meters. Once we arrive on the Great Wall, our uphill hiking is mostly done.
As the hike continues at the top of the Great Wall, we enjoy fantastic views of famous Great Wall sections known as “The Wall Bow”, “Arrow Nock” and the “Beijing Knot”. We pass 7 beacon towers on this section of the wall. The best-preserved ones are called the 5-eye watchtower and the Jade tower.
We pitch our tents in front of the 6th tower and enjoy a buffet style home cooked dinner. At night, a small campfire will keep us warm while we watch the stars.
