Detailed itinerary:
We will meet in the early morning at 8:00am, and will arrive at the Longquanyu area at about 10:00am. We will start our hike by following a trail in the local farmers’ orchard down to the village. From the village we will walk along a trail in the mountains up to the Longquanyu Great Wall.

This section of Wall still remains its original appearance since its construction in Ming Dynasty. But the climb isn’t steep. And in some parts the walk is very pleasant. The whole section of wall contains almost 10 watch towers. The last watch tower is rebuilt and it is in a good condition. We will take a short break there and then head down torwards the mouth of the valley. Following a trail along a shallow stream in the valley we will get to the Fragrant Village. The stream offers a lot of fun. You can walk on ice in winter and walk in water in summer. We will visit the Fragrant Village and have a lunch in a local guest house.

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.
