The Gubeikou Great Wall inhabits a tactically crucial place, which is challenging to gain access to. The Wall right here is entirely unrestored, covered with over 140 watchtowers, all varying in dimension and also style. From the Wall right here, you will certainly have the ability to witness exactly how the Wall spins as well as winds along with the high range of mountains.
In 1933, the Chinese military combated versus Japanese intrusion soldiers in Gubeikou. In the four-month-long fights, over 5,000 Japanese soldiers were killed while 9,000 Chinese soldiers died. It was remarkable that the old Wall is not a relic but continued to be a field of battle in modern war.
Much of the trekking that we will certainly do on Jinshanling today is reasonably very easy, as the wall surface right here is partly recovered, and also the surface area is smoother. Every 100 meters (328 feet), there is an opponent tower, each of which is regarding 10 meters (33 feet) high.
For lunch, we'll take a short stroll down the Wall to eat at a farmer's dining house by Mr. Duan Jiujun. His household will make a tasty country-style dish for you. He will also welcome you to visit his mini picture gallery (he takes pictures of the Great Wall as a hobby) after you are full. Great Wall Adventure Club certifies Duan's dining house to be a trusted dining place that meets our requirements.
Later, you will be moved back to the bus terminal at Gubei Watertown where you will certainly take the specific bus to Dongzhimen Bus Terminal of Beijing.
Thank you for your help in arranging our hike. My husband and I had an amazing time. The local guide was very friendly, the driver was on time and was a super driver. Most of all - that route was unforgettable. I am posting on tripadvisor right now.
