West to East Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall Trekking (2 days)
The 18 km Jiankou to Mutianyu Great wall trekking offers an in-depth exploration of the Wild Jiankou with a finish on the restored Mutianyu Great Wall. The first day we hike the Eastern section of wild Jiankou Great Wall and stay overnight at a local farmhouse. On day 2 we pick up our trek on the Jiankou from the famous Zhengbeilou Watchtower and hike East all the way to Mutianyu Great Wall.
Day 1: Jiankou Great Wall trekking
From our meeting point (Lama temple subway station) we drive for about 2 hours till we reach picturesque Dazhenyu village. Before we start this Great Wall trek we enjoy a good farm house lunch in yard surrounded by chestnuts and with a view on the Jiankou Great Wall. Today it’s an 8 km hike with a total ascend of 600 meter so you ll need a fair bit of energy to make it to the top.
