This morning you will transferred 2.5 hours to the Gubeikou section of the Great Wall, a less visited section than other parts of the Wall. From here you will start your hike to the Jinshanling Great Wall, which will take approximately five to six hours over around 12km. Both Jinshanling and Gubeikou are rough and wild, and afford some of the best views in China. The walk intersects a military base, and will detour briefly off the wall around the base, stopping at a farmhouse for a lunch of homecooked dishes. Finishing your hike, you will be transferred to Gubei Watertown for your overnight stay. (B,L)
This morning take the cable car on to the Simatai section of the Great Wall and enjoy spectacular views as the sun rises. Much of Simatai Great Wall has not been restored and is draped over a rocky mountain ridge. Spend a couple of hours soaking up the breathtaking views and exploring the wall with its many watchtowers. After lunch you will return to Beijing where your arrangements end. (B,L)
