  • Recommendations please and thank you

    Hello from wintry Toronto .... I'm visiting Beijing with my husband and our 13-year-old son in late May. We plan to introduce the Great Wall to the young lad by doing an overnight camping on the wall. We try to arrange it ourselves rather than using tour companies. Any recommendation on routes, guide/driver or someone who offers one-stop shop would be greatly appreciated . We're in our mid-40's, with hiking camping experience, in relatively good shape ( though my husband may disagree ). Our 13-year-old, being an AAA baseball , hockey , basketball, and soccer player, is very athletic and in excellent shape. So we're looking for routes with moderate challenging level. Many thanks in advance.

    Hello Priscilla,
    There are so many great places to go it's hard to choose. Jinshanling and Jiankou are very popular. I would probably consider a hike from Gubeikou to Jinshanling. Recommend you look at this page. Recommended locations.

    You might also check here for a driver.

    Good luck!
