Jiankou Great Wall is located in Badaohe village in the northwest of Huairou County in Beijing, about 30 kilometers away from Huairou County Town. It is also situated at Bohai Town (North part at Badaohe, while south part at Bohai). It connects to Mutianyu Great Wall in the east, and joins the Dazhenyu Great Wall in the west. Because the moutain here is higher and steeper, this section becomes more winding and varied. 'Jiankou', is translated as 'Arrow Nock' in English,because the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.
We start at 8:00, after about 2 hours driving, we come to the XiZhaZi village in Huairou. Walk across the village, then hike for about 1 hour, we approach the Due North Tower of Jiankou Great Wall. When we climb the tower, look to the west, you will have a breathtaking view of Jiankou section, look to the east,you will see the “Bull’s Horn section”. After about 40 minutes, we arrive at the “Bull’s Horn section”. This section of Great Wall is steep and dangerous, with small stones falling all the time.We shall divert this section and go back on the Great Wall after 15 minutes walking on a path instead. After 30 minutes more hiking, we approach the Mutianyu No.23 Tower, in front of which we see the renovated GreatWall. We will climb over one meter high wall at No.20 watch tower because the gate was blocked by the Mutianyu Greatwall office.At the end there is a slide rail,chairlift or path.
