Firstly, drive you to Gubeikou Water Town(around 1.5 hours for one way). Gubeikou is located in the northeast of Beijing's Miyun District, one of the gateways of the Great Wall of China. It is the main throat between Beijing and the Northeast. The northwest Juyongguan and Gubeikou in the northeast are two important gateways to the capital of the Ming Dynasty. It is a rare resort town around Beijing with a unique northern style at the foot of the Great Wall and a southern water town. The Gubei Water Town was built by the Wuzhen team to imitate Jiangnan Wuzhen. However, many building windows and doors look long, and they should be dismantled from the ancient villages and reassembled in Gubei.
Upon arrival, our guide will take you to explore the town. You will visit Blocks of the Republic of China, the Old Camp Site, the Water Streets Region, the Wolongbao Folk Culture Region, the Old Village at Tang River Region, and the Local Accommodation Region. There are plenty of places to stop and rest if you walk, and lots of places to explore.
After walking around the town, you will go for a boat along the River Channels. It is one of the best way of sightseeing.
Lunch is arranged at water town with authentic local food. After lunch, you can also experience unique local customs and participate in native activities. If you like Chinese spirits, the Sima Distillery may be a nice choice. You can smell the aroma of the spirits from afar before you reach there. You can also witness the process of spirits making.
Continue your tour to Yongshun Dye House, red, green, yellow and blue cloths hang flapping in the breeze. Some old-style looms and spinning machines are on display. You can learn about ecological cloth printing and dyeing, and even create your own DIY work with the help of craftsmen.
In addition, you can spend your leisure time in the Yinghua Academy, where many Confucian classics, historical records, philosophical writings and miscellaneous works have been collected. You can read and enjoy some afternoon tea to relax and refresh yourself.
Back to your hotel at suitable time for a rest. Free on your own to enjoy the night view of Gubeikou Water Town.
If the weather permits, get up in the early morning and climb to Simatai Great Wall to catch sunrise view. Our guide will pick you up from your hotel and take you to visit Simatai Great Wall. The Simatai Great Wall is the only Great Wall in China that retains the
original features of the Ming Dynasty. It is a valuable world cultural
heritage and has been named by the British Times as “the first place in
the world to not miss 25 scenic spots”. Under normal circumstances,
Gubei Water Town and Simatai Great Wall are all in one play.
You will start your hike up to the Simatai Great Wall. This part of your treking is one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Wall. Today's hike is focused on the east section of the Simatai Great Wall - 10 towers. Actually there are totally 16 watchtowers distributed on the Simatai Great Wall snaking the ridge of the steep mountain. The 11th-16th towers are forbidden to hike due to their steepness and treacherousness.
People prefer to hike up the Great Wall, then take the cable car down. If you don't have strong legs, you may take the cable car up to an open place close to the 5th and the 8th tower (White Cloud Tower ), then climb up or climb down the Great Wall, or again you may choose to take the cable car back to the ground after hiking up to the top. Cable car is optional ( RMB80 one way ).
From the top, you will have a whole view of Gubeikou Water Town.
Lunch is arranged at one of households in Simatai Village where you can try some home-made food. Simple but delicious. After lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel or drop off at Beijing train station.
