Day 1 Beijing – Huanghuacheng (1.5 hours, 3km hiking)
Pick you up at your hotel in Beijing at 14:00 and drive to Huanghuacheng (2 hours). You will start the hiking around 16:00, and it will take about 1.5 hours hiking on the Wall for a return trip of 4 watchtowers. The Wall actually snakes eastward, however we’re not able to walk further as it’s very steep and crumbling.
We will have a home-made local dinner at a farmer’s guesthouse next to the Wall. basic shower is available at the guesthouse and we will also have home-made local dinner here. Our host will lift up all camping gears to the watchtower on the Wall after dinner. We will go back to the watchtower on the Wall by 30 minutes walking. Torch is necessary to find the way at night. You have to go toilet before ascending the Wall.
Camping gears: twin-shared tent, 1 sleeping bag and 1 rolling mat per person Meals: dinner
Accommodation: camping on one of the watchtowers on the Great Wall
Day 2 Sunrise & Hiking from Huanghuacheng to Xishuiyu (4 hours, 6km hiking) – Beijing
Wake up on the Great Wall as the sun rises around you. It’s the right time to produce amazing photographs. At this time there are usually no other tourists on the wall, you have the wall to yourself. We will come down to the village and have basic breakfast here and then walk up to the Wall again.
The first 40-minute straight up walking is challenging and you will be rewarded by the first watchtower with a panoramic view of the lakeside Great Wall however. There are constant ups and downs toward Xishuiyu. You will meander through the jungles and bushes, along with chestnut orchid near the Wall. When reaching the end of today’s hike at Xishuiyu, you will see another part of the Wall cut by another reservoir. Again, stunning view from top of the watchtower. Coming down on a little path and we will finish the hike at the parking lot. Be warned that it is slippery when descending the Wall, and you don’t have to rush forward.
A unique Hotpot lunch is followed on the way back to Beijing. Hotpot is originally from Sichuan Province and now is popular all over China. You can choose Plain or Spicy one as you like. This is also a good opportunity to practice your chopstick skills.. You will get back to hotel at 2 pm.
