Jinshanling to Simatai West Self-guided Hiking Tour


   We can pick you up and drop off you from Beijing airport.

Your private tour begins with pickup at your hotel. Your driver will hold a sign with your name to welcome you from your hotel lobby.
Please let us know the time you want to start the tour. Usually, we start at 8 am, but flexible at any time before 12:00.
(All our drivers are very friendly to know the traffic and Jinshanling Great Wall very well. They will drive very comfortably and safely!)
Upon arrival at the Great Wall, your private driver will help you get the tickets.
Your driver will show you the map of the pickup point, which you won’t miss. You will go up the wall from the main Gate of Jinshanling, and after half an hour of hiking up the hill, you will get to the wall.
Spend 2-4 hours hiking the wall depending on your schedule. Enjoy the view and take some excellent pictures.
Your driver will wait for you at the East gate of Jinshanling.
After the tour, begin your journey back to the airport or drop off at your Beijing city hotel.

Good to Know:

1. At the main gate, you can take the shuttle bus (if you don’t take the shuttle bus, you need to walk another 1.5 km) to the main gate, then you can either walk or take the cable car up to the wall.

2. The way from Jinshanling to Simatai is blocked. So you can’t walk from Jinshanling to Simatai, the Simatai west is close to the Jinshanling east gate. So this hike is about 7 km hiking from the main gate to the east gate.
