  • 14 days on the wall

    Hello,

    A friend and I are planning an extended hike on the (wild) wall.
    We both are reasonably fit, used to hiking and mountaineering and do have a certain level of outdoor-knowledge. Also we are quite well equipped with modern outdoor gear.
    Our plan is to make a 14 day hike on the wall in September.
    We would like to stay on the wall as long as possible, avoiding any transfers etc.. Instead we would like to walk our way and camp on the path.

    Do you have any hints on which section to choose? We are quite free to travel to wherever it is necessary, although we would prefer a location close to Bejing.

    I do own the "walk the great wall" book, so you can refer to it in your answer.

    Thanks awfully,
    Matthias.

      Hello Bryan,

      Thank you very much for reading my post and for the swift reply.
      I found a short note of "Shuitoucun and Longquanyu" in one of the posts you mentioned above. I am not quite sure about where these locations are - is that the Hebei province?

      Cheers,

      Matthias.

        Shuitoucun is the nearest village to Bijiashan: http://www.greatwallforum.com/forum/bijiashan/

        And Longquanyu is in Yanqing but it's just over the border and connected to the Huairou wall: http://www.greatwallforum.com/forum/longquanyu/
