Dec. 9, 2010 - PRLog -- Seeking an active adventure? China Tours is enticing visitors to China with the introduction of a moderate hiking experience at the renowned Great Wall, names 4-day Jinshanling Great Wall - Simatai Great Wall Trekking. If you're looking for breathtaking views in relative isolation, combined with some exercise, then this trek is definitely for you.

In addition to their regularly scheduled itinerary: Tiananmen Square, the majestic Forbidden City, the impressive Temple of Heaven, the scrumptious Peking Duck Banquet and the classical Peking Opera, China Tours is offering guided hiking tour from Jinshanling Great Wall to the west section of Simatai Great wall for about 4-5 hours, which is a popular hiking route.

Jinshanling and Simatai Great Wall are the two part of walls closely linked which are considered to be the best preserved sections and the most beautiful scenes there. This tour is beloved by hiking fans, and some parts are really steep which is a big challenge and only accessible for the energetic and experienced ones.

There are a number of Great Wall sections in Beijing that you can tour. The most famous one is Badaling Great Wall. But there are more challenging stretches of this historical and architectural marvel within an easy day-trip from Beijing city limits.

Simatai Great Wall is not for everyone. The 19 km section is very steep, with a few slopes built at a 70-degree incline but worth the visit as you will see the Wall in its natural state, whereas the heavily-visited Badaling and Mutianyu sections which are well restored they could have been built yesterday – Gubeikou and Jinshanling are other sections which are very original.

1. Wear your trekking gear.
2. Take along water and snacks.
3. Spring and autumn will offer the best views.
4. You can see Beijing at the Watching Beijing Tower.
5. It takes 2 hours to return to Beijing.
