Postby aloha123 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 9:01 am

Mar 5 8:00 am - 16:30 pm
RMB 130

Generally speaking, Gubeikou is comprised of four sections: Wohushan, Panlongshan, Jinshanling, and Simatai. It is the essence of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall. This section is built along the Yan Mountains, and the Chao River, where the town of Gubeikou is, divides it into two distinct parts. It was originally named "Beikou", which literally means "Northern Pass", "Gu" (ancient) was only added by later generations. It protected ancient China from Mongol/Manchu invasion from the north.

It is located in Miyun district, Beijing, about 140 kilometers to the west of downtown Beijing. You will be satisfied with the achievement and the scenery when you get there. Hiking east, you will first reach Jinshanling, then Simatai.

Highlights of this hike include:
1. More interesting historically Great Wall

2. It hasn’t been repaired
3. Meeting up with nice and sweet hikers and feeling of the Spring
