Private Hiking Adventure from the Gubeikou to Jinshanling Great Wall

Tour Summary

Gubeikou is a town within Miyun County in northeastern Beijing. The area is one of the most important passes of the Great Wall of China, serving as an ancient chokepoint for travelers between the Northeast and Beijing. Jinshanling is a section of the Great Wall of China located 125 km northeast of Beijing. This section was built in 1570 during the Ming Dynasty, and it has a complete defensive system, including barrier walls, battlement walls, watchtowers, gun emplacements, shooting holes, horse blocking walls, and branch cities.

On this private day trip, you will go on a hiking adventure from Gubeikou to the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall. During the trip, you will enjoy the original, fantastic view of the Great Wall.
