Day-by-day Hiking Itinerary (B=breakfast, L=lunch, D=dinner)


Day 1





Beijing-Chengde (L+D)
Your guide will meet you at your hotel between 7:30-8:00 AM. You will then head to Chengde by private van. Once in Chengde you will visit the Mountain Resort (known as the Bishushangzhuang in Chinese), a vast imperial garden once used as the summer Retreat of the Qing Dynasty, and a UNESCO World heritage Site. The resort is famous for 72 scenic posts, how many will you be able to find*

After lunch you will visit the Small Potala Palace (Putouzongsheng in Chinese), which was modeled after the Potala Palace of Tibet. It makes up one of the “Eight Outer Temples of Chengde”. At the palace you can enjoy the fusion of Chinese and Tibetan architecture, and marvel at the Buddhist sculptures and ornate yellow-tiled roofs.

After visiting the palace you will be transported to your hotel where you can enjoy a delicious dinner and an evening walk around the city of the former summer retreat of the Qing emperors.

Day 2




(B+L, 5km/3miles, 1.5 hours)

After waking up between 7:30-8:00 AM and taking in breakfast, we will drive directly to the Xifengkou Natural Resort, which is located 60km/37 miles northwest of Qinxi County, Hebei province. Upon arrival, you will take a boat to the Panjiakou reservoir. Where you can Senjoy a picturesque picnic lunch by the lake and the wall.

After lunch you will start your afternoon hiking on Xifengkou Great Wall. For about 5km/1.5 miles. At the Xifengkou section you will witness the unique spectacle of “the Great Wall under the water”. Now, due to the construction of the Panjiakou Reservoir, the main part of the wall has been submerged by the rising water but it is still dimly visible, which makes it a unique sight along the Great Wall. Look down at the Xifengkou Great Wall from the top of the mountain and you will see that it looks like a giant dragon zigzagging through the water. The view of the flickering ancient Great Wall between mountains and blue waves, the straight isolated watchtowers and beacon towers on the peaks, and the green ranges of hills all will give you a feeling of wonder and amazement.

In 1933, the Japanese army of aggression against China attempted to attack Beijing from Xifengkou pass through customs. The Chinese army stationed along the Great Wall rose in resistance in Xifengkou, Gubeikou, and Lengkou in east Hebei Province. In Xifengkou, anti-Japanese General Song Zheyuan lvbu towards the enemy, patriotic soldiers with sword enemy lost some people, creating the famous sword of March.
