Overview

Hike an authentic section of the Great Wall of China at the remote and challenging Jiankou trail, passing through beautiful steep mountain scenery.

Considered one of the most scenic stretches of the Great Wall, the Jiankou Great Wall is where most contemporary professional photographs are taken. The Jiankou Wall dates from the Ming Dynasty, and connects with the Mutianyu Great Wall to the east, and the Huanghuacheng Great Wall to the west.

Zigzaging for 9.3 miles from east to north, it is higher and steeper than the Mutianyu Great Wall, and more winding and varied than the Simatai Great Wall. Built from local dolomite, the white rock is striking to the eye from a distance.

During your hike you will see the The Zhenbeilou Tower, an important command post during the ancient wars, where is 1200 meters above sea level. Discover The Beijing Knot, where 3 walls come together from different directions.

Climb The Sky Stair, leading to The Eagle Flies Facing Upward watchtower, built on the lofty peaks and said to be so dangerous that even eagles have to fly facing upward to reach the top.
