Det skal I lave

Shixia is a peaceful village beside a ramshackle stretch of the Great Wall. Although just over an hour from Beijing, it is rarely visited by tourists – we'll hike along the undisturbed wall for hours and choose cold beers and a meal (40RMB per person)prepared by our hospitable host at a cozy courtyard.

The hike itself is a good workout but nothing too strenuous, roughly 4-5 hours in total with plenty of time to stop and take photos. The maximum elevation is about 1136 meters. We will take our time climbing up and down and make sure that we have a relaxing and enjoyable visit. There are alternate routes around the steepest climbs allowing the hikers to adapt their activity to suit their hiking level. Sitting atop the watchtowers along the way, you could hear nothing but the wind.

Typically we depart at 8 am and return to Beijing by 4 pm. I guide and company with you throughout the entire journey.

The Great Wall in this area is home to a diverse range of animals, large as well as small. You'll have a chance to see interesting species like butterfly, spider, grasshopper, fox, African hoopoe, dione ratsnake and common pheasant etc.

Some expats living in Beijing told me that Shixia is one of places which is worth for them to visit repeatedly every year.

Hello friends! I'm Steven, a teacher/entrepreneur/hiker, and a father as well. I've been living & working in Beijing for 20 years. Numerous historical sights, widely diverse ethnic cultures, delicious cuisine and vibrant nightlife make Beijing one of China’s best getaways. Desert, mountains, plateau meadow, beaches are all accessible in several hours from Beijing. Fortunately I have been hiking or camping in all these various landscapes. But today I want to talk about something else - hiking the Great Wall. I'm a passionate Great Wall lover. I hiked most sections of the Great Wall in Beijing area many times on my own in the last ten years. I have been hiking the Great Wall with 2000+ hikers from 50+ countries all over the world since 2011. Hiking the Great Wall and knowing new friends from all over the world make a big fun.

Her skal du være

We'll go to Shixia Great Wall. It's totally different from Mutianyu or Zhuangdaokou. You'll have a unique experience on 2 totally different parts of the Great Wall in one day. We will start hiking on a restored section, then switch to a section which was built 500 years ago. There are few tourists going to that place. We'll enjoy the original walls, peaceful nature, fresh air, a local feast after hiking as well.

It was wonderful to see the Great Wall with absolutely no other tourists in sight, just Steven and myself. The hike is quite tiring and rocky with steep parts that can be a challenge for those not used to hiking, but it was worth it for the beautiful views of the wall. A great experience overall and would recommend if you want to avoid tourist-filled areas.

Heyy all, the experience was great. The location was awesome and something you could never organize by yourself. Steven was a great instructor and got us all save and on time back. Top transfer and lunch. Hopping to see him again

如果你想体验真正的长城,这个tour会是你最好的选择;没有人头攒动的拥挤,有半修复和原生态的长城,长城的雄伟,险峻,沧桑,俊野,一步一景,你都能体会到。 如果你想挑战真正的自我,这个强度会是你最佳的尝试;海拔和徒步的距离都非常适中,无经验或者有经验的旅者都有不一样的体验,登上长城一切汗水都化为自己的骄傲。 如果你想结实真正的旅游,这个小队伍会是你最棒的经历;五湖四海,你会遇到来自各种背景和经历的驴友,旅行重要的不仅仅是风景而是同行的各种经历。领队Steven也是一个经历和经验丰富的大哥,值得你深度挖掘~!

This experience was well worth the money. Steven was very accommodating and super friendly. He really knows his stuff and the tour felt very special. There was literally nobody else on the wall with us! Also, lunch was some of the best food I had in China. If you like a small, personalized trip that doesn't make you feel like a tourist, I can't recommend this tour enough.

This was an incredible experience that is truly a highlight of mine from travelling to over 50 countries in my life. Steven was very kind and helpful in adjusting our plans to accommodate my husband being ill in the morning. We certainly made the most of our time walking along stunning, empty stretches of the Great Wall while Steven provided context and answers. He couldn't have been friendlier or more informed! Plus, he very kindly put together an incredible video of our hike as we went along! Amazing memories to have and share! I will say that parts of this hike are definitely a hike and not just a walk. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes and clothes for hiking, as it'll make your experience ideal. But I cannot recommend this experience enough! It's like visiting the Great Wall as you'd imagine--without tourists and souvenir sellers!
