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

 

Day 1

 

 

 

 

Beijing-Panjiakou Reservoir and Xifengkou Great Wall (L+D, 1.5 hours)

You will meet your guide at your hotel between 7:30-8:00 AM and 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 enjoy 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.

That night you will rest up and recharge by staying in a local farmer’s house. The farmer and family will prepare you a splendid dinner, and it will also be a memorable experience to dine with a local family. Maybe you’ll make a few friends along the way! Be sure to get a good sleep, because you will have a lot to see tomorrow!

Day 2

 




 

 


Xifengkou-Beijing (B+L)


After waking up at 7:00AM and having breakfast in the hotel, you will start hiking at Xifengkou. There you will have the pleasure of exploring some of the natural wonders of Beijing. The attractions here rarely get crowded, and if there are tourists its mostly Chinese ones, so this will feel truly more authentic than visiting most of the sites in Beijing or more of the well-known sections of Great Wall.

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. We'll take a walk along the Xifengkou Great Wall for two hours. Afterwards we will drive back to Beijing and arrive at your hotel at around 7:00 PM.

Stuff to bring on your trip:

* Tough hiking boots, sunscreen and sunglasses, and water
* Backpack, and snacks or energy/protein supplements you want to have before lunch
* Extra cash for drive/guide tips along with money for either cable car or toboggan ride
* Don’t forget your camera!

We have up to 8 different routes for overnight hiking and camping on the Great Wall!
