Gubeikou Great Wall is located in Miyun County, 120 kilometers away from downtown Beijing. It is composed of two parts. The main part of the Gubeikou Wall was first built in the Ming Dynasty 1368 A.D., while the other part was built in the Beiqi Dynasty 550 A.D.. This section is the most intact and well preserved,original section of all the sections in Beijing. You can feel the vicissitude of history here, more than that, those bullet holes and damages will take you back to the past when flames of war raging everywhere.
We start at 8:00 am. After about 2.5 hours of driving, we get off at Guyudao, walk across the village, go straight up along the hillside, and finally step on the Gubeikou Great Wall. 3-4 hours later, we arrive at the highest place of this section of Great Wall,the 24 Hole Guard Tower. Then we go into the valley(military restricted zone ahead), walk back to Haowanglou watch tower,and walk down to the village,have a lunch in the local farmer's house
We will buy subway as lunch, also drinking water and snacks. Please carry enough bottled water on that day because we could not buy water on the way.Keep your insect repellent pump spray because of flies and mosquitoes around when we go through the bush and bring your trousers.
