Gubeikou Great Wall Brief Introduction

Gubeikou Great Wall is located in Miyun County, 120 kilometers away from downtown Beijing. It is composed of two parts. The main part of the Gubeikou Wall was first built in the Ming Dynasty 1368 A.D., while the other part was built in the Beiqi Dynasty 550 A.D.. This section is the most intact and well preserved,original section of all the sections in Beijing. You can feel the vicissitude of history here, more than that, those bullet holes and damages will take you back to the past when flames of war raging everywhere.

Jinshanling Great Wall  Brief Introduction

Jinshanling Great Wall starts from Longyukou in the west and ends at the Wangjinglou Tower in the east and stretches about 10.5 kilometers. It is located on the Yanshan Mountains, 140 kilometers away from downtown Beijing, where Miyun County borders with Luanpin County in Hebei Province.The Jinshanling Great Wall is acomplicated and well preserved fortification systems and possesses the largest number of watchtowers. These watchtowers were made by huge bricks, 5-8 meters high, each one built in a different architectural style and every other one is about 50-100 meters away. Some of them are half-timbered, some are stone, some with one eave, some with two-eave. The roofs of the towers are many and varied, flat,arched, quadrangular or octagonal. It is an exemplary section of the Great Wall and hence comes the saying that the Jinshanling section is the most essential part of the 10,000-li Great Wall. Jinshanlin Great Wall has a strong military defence system. It includes barrier walls, crib walls.
Simatai Great Wall Brief Introduction

Simatai Great Wall is situated at Gubeikou Twon, Miyun County, 120 km (75 mi) northeast of Beijing. It stretches 5.4 km from Wangjinglou (Tower for Viewing the Capital) in the east and connects Jinshanling Great Wall in the west. Originally built in the North Qi Dynasty (550-577), it was reconstructed by General Qi Jiguang in the reign of Emperor Wanli from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It consists of 35 watch towers and still retains the original architecture feature of the Ming Dynasty. This section was restored again by Chinese government in 1987 and opened to the public in 1990. Simatai Great Wall was listed as World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1987.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 Beijing-Gubeikou-Jinshanling

       Meal(s): Lunch, Dinner

       Hiking Time: 5hrs

       Today Arrangement:  After an early pick-up from your hotel, drive directly to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall. The Great Wall was built to protect China from attacks of nomads living in north frontiers. However, it was broken through here at the Gubeikou Pass, in 1541 by the Mongols, under the leadership of Altan Khan, who set the suburbs of Beijing on fire but inexplicably spared Beijing. The hike will take us to a military area along the Wall, which we must bypass through a pleasant diversion through a friendly village; then hike directly to the Jinshanling Great Wall, where we will stop for the night, either stay in a local hotel near the Wall, or camp on the Wall if the weather is nice!

 Day 2 Jinshanling-Simatai-Beijing

        Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch

        Hiking Time: 5hrs

       Today Arrangement: Get up before sunrise to catch the beautiful view of the sun throwing soft morning light on to the Great Wall, great for photos. After breakfast, begin our hike towards the Simatai section. The hike is more difficult than yesterday’s due to the steep mountain ridges the wall follows, and some broken down parts of the Wall- known as the ‘Wild Wall’, unrestored. Have a picnic lunch inside one of the beacon towers if the day is too hot. During the afternoon, there will be many opportunities to take pictures of the authentic Great Wall section before we reach the restored tourist section at Simatai, where the driver is waiting for us in the parking lot. Be transferred back at the end of the afternoon.
