    It will take 2 hours driving from hotel to Jiankou. We will stop at village (bottom of Jiankou Great Wall) The village we call it “XiZhaZi.” You have to climb 40-50 minutes mountain, then you couldreach on Jiankou Great Wall. Driver will show you where should start to climb the mountain. Will show you the path.The Jiankou section is known for its ruggedness and wild beauty, and you will be in awe of the marvelous views it affords. When you reach on Jiankou Great Wall, you will see a deserted watchtower that gives you a panoramic view of the entire valley. In the early morning the view is priceless with its morning fog. This section of the wall is not well known by tourists. So you may alone on the wall in the early morning.

    Stop At: Zhangbeilou, Yucheng County, Shangqiu, Henan, China

    You will start your hiking from “Zhengbeilou” where is best location for taking pictures. Another highlight of Jiankou ithe enemy observation tower known as, ‘eagle flies facing upward’("Ying Fei Dao Yang"), so named because this watchtower was erected on the highest peak in the area, and eagles and hawks often perch on it. So don’t hike to that direction. I is too dangerous for hiking.

    It will take 2.5-3 hours from “Zhengbeilou” to Mutianyu part Tower #14. You could take cable car down from here,if you don’t want to more hiking.

    It will take around 1 hour from Tower #14 to Tower #6 where is toboggan down station. It lots fine. Highly recommended.

    After Cable car down or toboggan down, you will walk on a path which is for Mutianyu tourists . Then you could see Subway restaurant . Driver is there. And suggest you have a rest here, enjoy the table under sunshine, you may have something to eat here.
