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

 

 

Day 1: Beijing-East Qing Tomb-Huangyaguan (L+D, 1.5 hours)

After meeting your guide at your hotel between 7:30-8am, we will make the drive to the East Qing Tombs. The Eastern Qing Tombs, which is among the finest, best-preserved and largest of the extant tomb complexes in China. Along the south side of Changrui Mountain, the tombs of five emperors, four empresses, five imperial concubines, and one princess are arrayed based on the traditional concept of placing the most senior and most distinguished in the center.

Of all the tombs, Xiaoling is the biggest and most elaborate, standing as the focal point of the entire structure. The grandeur of this tomb may be attributed to its having been the first sepulcher constructed for a member of the royal family of the Qing Dynasty, so the builders hoped to set the tone for a prosperous future. Crossing through the Great Red Gate, you can see buildings of different sizes, all with roofs of yellow glazed tile, connected by the brick paths or 'sacred ways' that converge in the area of Xiaoling.

An example of the most exquisite architecture of the Eastern Qing Tombs is Dingdongling, the tomb of Empress Dowager Cixi. Although she handled affairs of state for more than 45 years, she never ascended the throne. (The only female ruler in Chinese history was Empress Wu Zetian in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Elaborate and highly refined decorations and carvings inside Dingdongling make it unique among the tombs of the Qing Dynasty. The main material used in the tomb, which took six years to build, was gold, the symbol of royal family.

Shortly after lunch we will drive to a small village, where we will start our afternoon hike on the Great Wall on Huangyaguan. It is designed as a miniature of the entire Great Wall of China, thereby allowing you get an understanding of the entire wall in a fraction of the time. The entire section is built on an abrupt mountain ridge. Being endowed with both natural beauty and cultural interest, it has become famous as a natural beauty spot and a summer resort.

After about an hour’s walk we will reach a peak overlooking the valley below. Form the peak we can also see the Huangyaguan Fortress, which was restored in 1984. From this vantage point, we will be able to see its Baguan pattern, a specially designed labyrinth designed to confuse and entrap the enemy. We will then walk down to the fortress for a fascinating and informative visit inside.

For that evening we will stay in a traditional courtyard hotel built on the site of the fortress.


Day 2: Hunagyaguan-Beijing (B+L, 10km/6 miles, 4-5 hours)

With breakfast in the hotel, we will then continue our hike on Huangyaguan, We will soon reach the major scenic point of Huangyaguan, the “Heaven’s Ladder”. Ascend the 200 steps of the "Heaven's Ladder" to gain a ridgetop above Huangyaguan. We will follow the trace of the Great Wall as it undulates across the mountains before gradually descending into a valley.

After ward, we will make our way to a local village near the wall. There, we will enjoy a provincial-style lunch made with loving care by one of the village’s families. We will wander around the village a little bit, chatting up with the locals. Who knows, maybe you’ll make a friend or a pen pal!

Then we will make the drive back to your Beijing hotel, ending the hike.

* Tough hiking boots, sunscreen and sunglasses, and water
