How tough is this hike?
This hike is very flexible, going from 5kms to 10kms. When we get to the Wall, you have free time to enjoy the Wall or hike a bit more.
Is the Great Wall we visited full of people?
Both sections are far away from the city. It is much quieter than Mutianyu and Badaling. Especially when it was not the weekend or Holiday, we were the only group on the Wall most of the time.
What time does the tour start and finish?
As the sunset time changed daily, our tour usually starts from 10 am to 11 am. We will go back to downtown Beijing 2.5 hours after Sunset.
What to take for this hike?
Comfortable shoes or boots are essential. We suggest you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm, cap. Please let me know if you need hike poles one day before the tour.
When does the tour have lunch? Is it ok for vegetarians?
Lunch is usually served after the hike around 2 pm. We chose a very nice local restaurant with excellent Chinese food. There is a lot of food suitable for vegetarians.
How many bottles of water do I need to bring?
Unlimited water bottles are stored in our car/van, and you must carry them.
Does the tour happen during the rain or snow?
We only cancel the tour during extreme weather conditions. Otherwise, the time goes on. Please check the weather report and be prepared.
What is the tipping or gratuities policy?
Tips are always appreciated by our guides but never expected. They should be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job and if you want to demonstrate your appreciation for the manual for that job well done. Usually, our clients give 50 to 100RMB per person.
