About
If you like some challenge hiking experience and also want to avoid crowded tourists, this all inclusive private tour is a great fit for you. You will hike on Jiankou Great Wall, which is connected to Mutianyu Great Wall in the east, and joins the Dazhenyu Great Wall in the west. Since the mountain here is higher and steeper, this section becomes more winding and varied. 'Jiankou', is translated as 'Arrow Nock' in English, because the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.

    The Great wall of Jiankou
    Stop: 4 hours
    Your tour starts at 8am, and your professional Great Wall trek guide will come to pick you up at your hotel in Beijing. You will take your private car to XiZhazi of Huairou County (2 hours driving), then you will walk through a forest and walk towards west direction on Jiankou Great Wall. You will find this section of the Wall is rarely visited by the tourists. During September and October, a few Chinese tourists interested in hiking will also come to this place for fun. Jiankou Great Wall is well-known for its steepness. There is one section is called "Ca Bian Guo" which means the wall is so narrow that only one person can go through at a time. Moreover, you will encounter a section of the Wall is named "San Shi Ba Deng", which is with 70 to 80 degree slop. "Mini Potala Palace" is another exciting section of the wall, which is built on the narrow and steep mountain range. Once you reach "sky stairs" there, you will start going down from the Wall. The entire hiking time is about 4 to 5 hours, and you surely will enjoy it very much. After your tour is finished, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Beijing.

Our trip was absolutely fantastic! We could not be happier. The historical knowledge you delivered made us appreciate The Great Wall and culture of China. You maintained a professional manner that kept us safe on trails but also, you are extremely kind, hospitable, and hilarious. You truly made our experience special — the perfect way to end the perfect trip. Thank you sincerely. We will be coming back again and request you!

Amazing Trek of Great Wall
Mar 2019 • Family
James was an excellent guide and we had an excellent experience with this company. They made everything easy and everything was top quality from transportation to accommodations to food to our trek. Our trek was challenging enough to be interesting but not too hard - perfect for our family. And James brought us to parts of the wall that were less traveled so it was less touristy and a real experience. 5 star, couldn't recommend enough.

Great Hike
Mar 2019 • Couples
First visit to the Great Wall and we hired James to take us to Jiankou! We had a blast and James was exceptional! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
I would definitely recommend him and the hike in Jiankou! You get to see the original Great Wall without a lot of tourists everywhere and you also get to do a pretty challenging hike!

Great Hike
Dec 2018 • Solo
Had a great day with James!
He picked me up from my hotel promptly at 7:30AM, just as was arranged the night before. We drove approximately two hours to a parking lot where we were the only car. This was a good sign, I had been to the main tourist section of the wall and I did not want that again, too many people. We hiked for about 30 minutes all generally uphill. James was very conscious of me as his client. Asking if breaks were needed and pausing to talk about the area and the Wall. He was clearly not rushing. When we got to the wall James explained the best path to climb to get on to the top, always cautious of safety. This carried all the way though the nearly 3 hours on the wall.
There are some very steep sections on this hike and areas where a path around some rumble is needed to be taken. It was great to have an experienced guild like James to help navigate.
Speaking of experienced. James mentioned that he has been to 40 different sections of the wall and generally hikes about 200 days on the wall.
If you are looking for a tour of the Great Wall that is off the beaten path, I highly recommend Greatwall TrekClub Tours and James!

Great Hiking!
Oct 2018 • Friends
This is the second hike I have done with James. Both have been spectacular! Newly relocated to Beijing I wanted someone that really knows the wall to introduce me the the trails and parts I have been searching for. James does not disappoint! He worked with me on where to begin our Great Wall Journey and how to proceed to our next hike. He listened to what we wanted and delivered. James is prompt, responsive and knowledgeable. He also takes the hike at your pace without you feeling like you are slow or fast. He knows what he is doing. Lunches are a big treat at the end. James takes care of the ordering and you can just enjoy. Anyone that enjoys a hike and a view into the Wild Great Wall would be fortunate to have James as their guide. I am scheduling our third hike right now!

What a fantastic day!
Oct 2018 • Solo
I can't say enough about this tour...I travel to Beijing for multiple weeks at a time for business and up until now had never been to The Great Wall. I've just never been interested in the standard tours to the more restored sections that are packed with other tourists and end at a requisite shopping experience. If that's what you're into, then that's great - but, if you want to see the older parts of the wall and have a more peaceful experience, then this is a fantastic option. I would characterize the hike as strenuous uphill for the first third, rolling terrain while you are on the unrestored section of the wall (unless you do the Oxhorn, which I didn't) for the second third, and then strenuous downhill on tired legs for the last third. But, Allen is a great guide and easy conversationalist, so the day and miles flew by. We even stopped at a great local Sichuan restaurant for lunch, after he learned that I love Sichuan food. I highly recommend this tour for someone who has some hiking miles under their belt or those who are physically fit. There are some areas where you need to climb up over walls and scramble up rocks, which is all part of the fun if you are able to do so, but if not you might have some trouble completing the journey.

Highlight of my China trip
Jul 2018 • Solo
Had an absolutely amazing trip with James! Picked me up from my hotel and brought me to this really really cool section of the great wall. Friends who have lived in China had never even heard of it it was so hidden. And, that was NOT because it wasn't superb. It was because it is such a well kept secret. the only people we came across were another trip led by this same company. In total, we saw three other people during 4 hours on the wall. Compare that to more tourist-y sections and you'll be very pleasantly surprised. That being said, it is a very challenging hike. Don't go if you're afraid of heights. But, if you can do it it is so worth it!

Amazing experience
My wife and I wanted to have a unique experience on the Great Wall. Everything about our trip was perfect. Our tour guide James called the night before to confirm our hike and was prompt and ready to hike. He informed us of interesting facts about China on the way to the Wall and was ready to hike as soon as we got there. He made a point to take care of my wife as we had just found out she was pregnant days before our trip, and showed care and interest in giving us the best experience while keeping her safe. I️ would recommend this tour of the Great Wall to anyone, as there are no tourists and you see a part of the Great Wall unrestored in all of its beauty. I️ couldn’t go on enough about our experience, thank you so much for every aspect of our trip!

Just perfect.
We booked the private hiking tour to the Great Wall and got James as our tour guide. He is a very friendly person with good English communication. We got picked up at our hotel in a comfortable car and went to the starting point of the hiking tour. From there we went onto the Great Wall and had some amazing views! After the hike James brought us to a local restaurant where we had the best Chinese food we have tried so far. It was delicious. After the lunch James brought us to the airport.

Everything was just perfect. We had an amazing day. If you want to visit the Great Wall I definitely recommend to book a private tour here. James has service at his top priority and wants to make sure you have a perfect day.

I would rate this tour 10/10 without a doubt.

best way to experience the great wall
Mar 2018 • Couples
We booked this tour because it promised to stay away from crowded tourist sites, and we absolutely loved it! Peter was a very good guide, very knowledgable and friendly. The tour is indeed challenging, a bit of prior climbing-experience an advantage. But nothing you couldn't handle. You are rewarded by a fascinating piece of unrestored wall, and very few other people. Plus, the lunch later on was delicious. Thanks for a great day!
