We did a 1 day hiking tour from Gubeikou to Jinshanling Great Wall. There is no need for a tour guide for the hike itself, can be self-organized. We rented a car plus driver to take us to Gubeikou (from Beijing) and take us back...More

We stayed in Gubeikou for two days and did two treks, the coiled dragon loop (circa 2.5 hours around Gubeikou) and the longer 6 hour hike to Jingshanling. Absolutely great seeing the wall in (nearly) its raw state with great views of the mountains and...More
