The Jiankou Wild Great wall is known for its wildness, unique style, steep mountains and beautiful scenery. Jiankou means " Arrow Nock" in English, because the shape of the Great Wall is like an arrow on the mountain. And it's also a photographic hotspot. Many amazing Great Wall publishments are taken from here.  

Also Jiankou is also one of the most dangerouse sections after being exposed to the wind and rains fro hundreds of years. And due to the lack of renovations here, some parts have already collapsed. 

As the danger of the Wild Great Wall, and heavy-load hiking. We are looking for experienced hikers!!! As some parts are collapsed, so some part need to climb with hands. Please check the pictures in our blog for the trip last year!!
