A local guide and the organizer will take the group hiking from the first tower to the 15th tower.


Keep in mind, no walk on the Wall is an easy one, and this hike fits the bill, as much of it takes place on the un-restored Wall.


As always with a Wall walk you will hike along an exposed ridge, there are rocky bits to climb and difficult boulders to navigate, the rope will come in handy at some tricky parts.


It’s a challenging hike, a long walk on the Wall and quite an exhilarating ridge walk. To come on the hike you will need good balance, not be afraid of heights, patience and stamina.


The hike team will not rush it, but will take their time to enjoy the view.


Cost: 150 yuan (US$18) per adult and 100 yuan (US$12) per child under 12. The fee includes round trip transportation, snacks and beverages, a detailed map of the hike and professional guides. Fees will be collected on the bus.
