By bike and on foot, tour the Simatai Great Wall, which is the most impressive portion of the Great Wall. This private, 2-day tour will take you from Beijing to Miyun where you will stay overnight in a hotel just minutes away from the wall itself.
What to Expect
The Simatai portion of the Great Wall is widely regarded as the most beautiful and impressive. On this private 2-day tour you will get up-close-and-personal with the Simatai Great Wall as you bike along it and hike up it.
The Simatai Great Wall is well-known for its five unique characteristics: steepness, compactness, queerness, wonderfulness and comprehensiveness. It is located in the town of Gubeikou, just to the north-east of Miyun, Beijing.
Your tour will begin with a pick-up from either your Beijing hotel or the Beijing Capital International Airport. You will then make the trip to the Miyun Reservoir. Here you will mount your bicycle and start your ride along the beautiful Miyun Reservoir front. Your guide will take you along this scenic trail all the way along the Simatai Great Wall to your hotel. You will be delighted to find that the Great Wall is just outside of your room. Dinner will be taken with your tour group and you will spend the night in a well-appointed double-occupancy room.
Your day will begin bright and early as you wake up when the birds are singing. You may enjoy a short stroll along the wall enjoying the scenery just after breakfast. Today you will hike to the top of the Great wall and along it to the Jingshanling portion. After your hike you will be dropped off at your hotel or the airport in Beijing.
The Simatai Great Wall is exquisite in its detail and is the only portion of the Great Walls that still retains the original features of the Ming Dynasty. Do not miss the opportunity to explore all of its hidden secrets on this private 2-day tour.
