Day 4: In the morning we drive 3 hours through wonderful nature to Simatei, one of the places where the wall has not undergone restoration and you can see the wall as it actually was. After lunch we climb up the eastern section of the Simatei wall, which consists of 12 watch towers. Be ware the climb will be steep and will give you good exercise!


Day 5: Today we will walk from the Simatei section to the Jinshanling section. In general it takes 4-5 hours to walk this part. This part is not restored, and you will really have to climb, sometimes on steep slopes. We will pass around 90 watch towers on the way, and the view is spectacular!!! In the afternoon we drive back to Beijing, and spend one more night in Beijing.
