The Great Wall Hiking Trip from Jinshanling to Simatai west. 6KM

Every day
The most popular, breathtaking trip by our agency is the hike from Jingshanling to West Simatai Great Wall. It takes an average of 3.5 hours to cross through 22 ancient towers, on rugged up and down inclines. Challenging but an amazing experience! Because of the terrain, the last 3km to Simatai is closed by the local government. However, we take you right up to the west edge.

Our 50,000 previous visitors would agree, we take you to the best parts of the Great Wall. Unlike other sections of the wall that are crowded with tourists and vendors, this stretch of wall has very few people, and the stones that make up the ruins are hundreds of years old, in its original condition. The views are some of the most breathtaking that you'll see in all of China. The day tour, including transportation and tickets, is 280 RMB..

About Simatai Closing:

Simatai has reopened.

While I regret to tell you that we could not get to Simatai via Jinshanling directly like before.

The Simatai Company has set up a checkpoint in the mountain,

prohibiting visitors get to Simatai from Jinshanling,

and announced that it will never reopen this line.

But direct visitors to Simatai are still welcomed. So please forget about Simatai and Zipline.

 

Now, we are the only tour to West Simatai from Jingshanling.

We still can hike 22 towers instead of 30.(5.75KM hike on the wall).  

But its still the best of the "wild" wall so far!

So come and join us. We will still take you there. 

Other parts of the wall will be more crowded this summer. 

We still have a great trip and your best choice for hiking the wall...

don't miss it!
