Detailed itinerary:
We will meet in the early morning at 8:00am and will get to the Qiangzilu Great Wall at about 10:30am. Qiangzilu Great Wall stands seventy kilometers east of Miyun and even hikers seldom know this section of wall. The wall is very wild and it is a great chance to witness the remote, historic and unspoiled Great Wall. The temperature there is even lower than other rural areas in Miyun county. There is a small village nearby the wall which only has two families. We will pass by two beacon towers and four watch towers. It makes a 90-degree turn here, in one of the most magnificent stretches of the Qiangzilu Great Wall.

You need to bring your own lunch. We will have lunch on the wall, where you will be able to get good reviews of the mountains and the wall around. We will come down the wall after lunch. We will walk along the road in the valley for about half an hour to a village. You can still see an old stretch of city wall with an old pass in the village. From there we will get on the bus to be back Beijing.

Bad weather plan:
We will email you 2-3 days before the hike to let you know about the weather condition. If there is thunder storm, heavy rain or strong wind it will be dangerous to do the hike on the wild unrestored Great Wall in the mountains. So we will cancel it, change the dates or arrange a hike to the restored section of the Great Wall.
