You will have the narrative of the local history and culture by your tour guide while you are comfortably sitting in the air-conditioned vehicle and enjoying the view passing by. Your driver will drop you off at the main entrance (Middle Gate). Hike up to the No. 1 Tower Zhuanduokou Pass with your guide. Spend 3 to 4 hours to hike and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the Wall. The 6 km long Jinshanling Great Wall shows some amazing defensive features, such as the barrier Walls, battlement walls, watchtowers, gun emplacements, shooting holes and horse blocking walls. This section of the Great Wall is comprised with the wild, preserved, original and ruined wall with great photography shots. Walk down from the No. 22 Tower East Five-windows Tower to the East Gate. Have a late lunch at a local restaurant or you can also prepare a Great Wall picnic. Drop you back to your hotel after the 9 hours tour. If you can not hike the entire wall, No. 6 Tower or No. 14 Tower are all exits to walk down from the Wall. The cable car is available at the No. 10 Tower also. So don’t be nervous about the tough hiking.
