AM: At around 7am, our English speaking guide and driver will pick you up from the downtown hotel (if your hotel is NOT within second ring road of Beijing city, please come to the appointed meeting place to meet the guide and driver). Jinshanling Great Wall is located 130 kilometers away from Beijing downtown with the ride of 2.5 hours from Beijing downtown area. It connects to Simatai Great Wall in the east and Gubeikou Great Wall in the west, zigzagging its way up and down the mountains for 10.5 kilometers. This part of the Great Wall has 3 unique features, barrier walls, bricks with characters, and horse obstructing walls. Barrier walls and horse obstructing walls are two important parts that make the great military defensive system more impregnable. Bricks were engraved with characters of the troop’s names when they were made, which helps to trace the history of the Great Wall. Another difference with other sections of the Great Wall is that you will not go backwards on Jinshanling section, while for other sections the farther you go the longer the return way is.
You will explore the Great Wall for about 3.5 hours. If hiking is too much for you, cable car is available and optional (you can pay cash on spot).
Noon: Have a simple lunch.
PM: Transfer back to Beijing downtown and drop you off at Dongzhimen, or Wangfujing, or Qianmen Sanjiao. You can freely explore the city on your own and get back to your hotel by yourself.
