Trip Summary

Chinese Culture, Adventure, At a Glance, Nature

Visiting the Great Wall of China is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on many travelers' bucket lists, but the huge crowds at sections like Badaling can ruin the experience. If you want to explore the Wall at your leisure without hundreds of other tourists in your way, the Gubeikou Wild Great Wall Day Hike is the tour for you!

This guided tour will take you to the scenic, unrestored section of the Great Wall known as Gubeikou, where you'll start an epic hike along the wall toward Jinshanling. During your hike, you'll enjoy breathtaking views of both restored and unrestored sections of the wall, and you'll have the opportunity to learn all about its history from your guide.

This unforgettable hike takes around four hours in total, so be sure to bring sturdy shoes.

All of our tour packages are customizable and we can tailor your itinerary to suit your needs; just ask one of our agents.
