  • Suggestions for solo day trip to great wall

    Dear Forum,

    I'm looking for suggestions about where I should go to visit the Great Wall. This will be my first time in China, and I was looking to do a day trip from Beijing. I would love to visit the less-touristy parts of the wall, but am not sure which sections of the wall would best suit an intermediate hiker who will be traveling solo. I had heard about the gubeikou, jinshanling and simatai sections, though I don't know if those sections of the wall would suit my needs. I do speak descent Mandarin, which will hopefully help for transportation to and from. Suggestions as to which sections would suit me (and ways to get there) are much appreciated!

    You might have a look at the recommended locations thread. The Gubeikou and Jinshanling area is fantastic and also fits your requirements. You might also consider the Jiankou area. There are many information regarding these areas in the forum and the recommended locations thread is a good starting point.
