A Great View of Sunset Great Wall

The secret Sunset Great Wall section is located about 15 km north from the famous Badaling Great Wall. It’s a 2-hour drive from our meeting point at Lama Temple till our lunch place, a local farmhouse with view on the Great Wall.

After a great lunch at the farmhouse courtyard we take a beautiful trail through the valley till we meet the Great Wall at its lowest point. Here we start hiking the famous steep staircases for a good hour, passing numerous guard towers on the way. The highest section of the Great Wall has been partly restored and is now in perfect condition for easy hiking.

We continue hiking a bit more and looking for a nice flat place on the Great Wall. We put down our backpacks and pitch our tents. While the guides collect fired wood and prepare dinner, you can go explore more of the Great Wall. You will find more watch towers and the famous 180 degrees Great Wall Turn, a perfect place for pictures.

The camping spot is very magical, having a view on the highest Great Wall in the north, miles and miles of Great Wall in the south and the Chen Castle General Tower in the east. A great place to enjoy a wood fire cooked dinner and watch the sunset with beer or a glass of wine. We fill the evening with sharing stories around the campfire and fall asleep by counting the stars.

Next morning, we wake up with a cup of coffee, watch the sun rise from behind the mountains. After a simple breakfast, we pack our tents hike a bit further on the wall and take a small trail through the forest down to stone valley where our driver will be waiting for us. By lunchtime we will be back in Beijing.

Camping After the Sunset

 

Hike Level 3: medium-strong

We rate this hike level 3 (medium-strong) as his trail starts with steep climb on the Great Wall where it can be slippery sometimes. You should be all right if you have a normal physical condition, as we never rush during our hikes.
