Description

GWH04 Gubeikou Great Wall Hike

The Great Wall at Gubeikou has kept its original appearance. Unlike other “wild” sections of the Great Wall, Gubeikou also has some historical sites like temples and temporary imperial palaces. To begin the hike we had a short walk through a wooded valley before climbing up a hill trail to reach the Great Wall. Close by to this point was an section where part of the outer wall had fallen away, and we were able to see the construction technique: layers of packed earth and rubble forming the core, with bricks on the outside edges.

Gubeikou Great Wall, is located along the Yanshan Mountain rang in the northeast of Miyun County, about 100 kilometers northeast of Beijing. It is composed of Wohu Great Wall and Panlong Great Wall. Although being collapsed and dilapidated, the whole Gubeikou Great Wall is not under any restoration at all. It keeps its original appearance totally, so it attracts travelers from all over the world here to appreciate the splendid beauty of China old great walls. Being separated by Chaohe River, Gubeikou Great Wall was divided into Wohushan Great Wall on the west and Panlongshan Great Wall on the east. Therefore, you cannot hike through the wall from Wohushan to Panlongshan directly. You have to climb up Wohushan and return to the foot of the mountain first, and then restart for Panlongshan section. The whole hiking for both Wohushan and Panlongshan sections will take about 7-8 hours. So, if you arrive in Gubeikou late, you'd better stay at Gubeikou County for overnight. Here we would like to provide you some accommodation information for your reference in case you need.
