    Tour Introduction

    Beijing is a city with over 2000 years of history, with one of the oldest cultures on Earth. It has been the Chinese capital for over 850 years (Yuan Dynasty, Ming Dynasty & Qing Dynasty). We will first drive to the Great Wall at Simatai in the morning. From Simatai we will hike the wild wall for about 4-5 hours to Jinshanling part of the wall. The Great Wall of China at Jinshanling is about 150 kilometers away from Beijing. The structure was mainly built in 1570 of Ming dynasty. This part of the Great Wall features complicated and well preserved fortifications systems and fantastic natural scenery. The wall looks a bit old and ruinous but much more natural, 7 to 8 meters high, 5 to 6 meters thick at bottom. On the top, slab pavements were 4 meters wide with 2 meter-high parapets on each side. The Great Wall of China at Simatai holds the access to Gubeikou, a strategic pass in the eastern part of the Great Wall. Originally built during the Northern Qi dynasty (550-577) and rebuilt in the Ming dynasty by General Qi Jiguang, this section of Great Wall is the only part of the Great Wall which keeps the original features of the Ming dynasty Great Wall.
