What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Great Wall at Huanghuacheng, 60 km (37 miles) N of Beijing, Beijing 102209 China

Meet your guide in the hotel lobby at 8:00 or 8:30 in the morning, drive about one and half hours to Huanghuacheng Great Wall

Huanghuacheng Great Wall more like secret place to visit, less people and less commercial, it is authentic Great Wall because Chinese government didn't restore it, Mutianyu or Badaling Great Wall very new and all rebuilt 30 years ago, full of tourists everyday and it will take about one and half hours line waiting for cable up and down, it is not Great Wall of China anymore, it is Great Wall of Chinese people, it is so hard to experience Great Wall and difficult to take amazing pictures because so many people on the Wall and push all the time.

The slightly less famous Huanghuacheng section of the wall is 65 km from Beijing in Huanghuacheng Town. This 10,800-meter section of the wall is the strongest and most well built, with six forts guarding six passes, twelve beacon towers, and thirty-two watchtowers. Ming Dynasty General Cai Kai supervised its construction.

Less renovated Wall where you can have a glimpse of the wild Wall. Less visited and quieter. You can do 1,5 hour hiking along the wall.

By the end of climbing we will walk through the rugged rock pass then down to a lovely village down the hill and stop locals-only restaurant for authentic Chinese lunch.

Heading to Beijing old town Hutongs and walk around Houhai Lake climb up to DrumTower and take bird's view of Beijing city.

Transfer back to your hotel by the end of the day trip.
