Jinshanling Great Wall Group Tour from Beijing

1. Jinshanling Great Wall Group Tour from Beijing

Benefit from early morning pickup at your hotel in Beijing city center, and then relax in air-conditioned comfort on the 2.5-hour journey to the Jinshanling Great Wall.  Located 140 kilometers (87 miles) northeast of the imperial capital, the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China connects to the Simatai and Gubeikou sections to the east and west, and is acclaimed for its brick-built watchtowers and dragon-like form as it snakes across the mountains. Get 3.5 hours to explore the wall and go for a peaceful walk without the usual tourist crowds to enjoy the amazing views. Break for a typical lunch at a local restaurant before the drive back to Beijing, where you will get dropped off at a subway station for your convenience.

What people are saying about Beijing

Amazing but challenging

This was not an easy hike. It's important to know that upfront as I don't think that was made clear at all from the listing. It was totally worth it and an amazing untouristy spot but we are in some serious pain the next day so please just know that going in to it. There are several straight uphill hiking points. If you have hiking poles I'd really recommend that! Bring some fruit or snacks as well. There are so many stairs. Seriously. So many, those with bad knees should be aware. Definitely take the cable car for the extra $$. Chen was a great guide and really funny. The lunch was way more tasty than expected for a tour like this. I would recommend this tour but the company should spell out the difficulty level more clearly instead of selling it as a "peaceful walk". It was amazing, we just were not mentally prepared for the difficulty and are each soaking our legs in hot baths to get some relief!

Breathtaking

-- Bit slow getting there via multiple pickups and a coach change (the journey is nearer 4 hours than 2). -- Food at the end was quite nice but in an increasingly unbearably hot room. -- The walk can be strenuous in the heat... But + It's well worth it if you're braced for a lot of steps + The lack of other tourists creates such a wonderful sense of seclusion. + The views are incredible. + All in all I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

great day, no crowds, no tour/ guide

Not really a tour as such, The guide dropped us all at the start of the wall section pointed to the map and said meet you here in 4 hours and disapeared. Also the tour company needs to explain that this section of the wall requires strenuous climbing and at least a moderate fitnesses level to climb. Not recommend if you want to learn anything about the history of the wall

For me the nicest part of the wall!

This section of the great wall is less vosoted by tourists, making it very pleasant to hike and enjoy the amazing view. We had a large group (around 20 persons) but there were few other tourists. It's 6 km and partly challenging. I enjoyed it very much

Wunderful day

Good day experience with 3h working on an empty part of the Great Wall. Good timing for the day tour with no extra selling stops.
