Meet your personal guide upon pickup in your hotel lobby, then relax in the comfort of your private vehicle for the 2.5-hour drive to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall. On arrival, embark on a 5-hour hike for physically fit participants who appreciate the outdoors. The distance from Gubeikou to the Great Wall at Jinshanling covers about 6 miles (10 km) — it's a bit challenging but much less crowded than other sections.
Starting out from the Great Wall at Gubeikou, you'll pass a military area that cuts between the Hikon and Simatai sections. Walk with your guide through an old village and soak up the panoramic views. If the weather cooperates with clear skies, you can see Miyun Reservoir and view Beijing from Wangjing Tower.
On reaching the Jinshanling Great Wall, lunch will be provided at a local restaurant. Your tour concludes with the return transfer to Beijing with drop-off at your hotel.
