This is Joe (Qiao), I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different sections of the Great Wall:

1, Gubeikou WILD Great Wall is connected with touristy Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall.

2, Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.

Welcome to the Great Wall Box House, locates at the most tradtional but non-touristy Chinese village -- Gubeikou, 120 km to Beijing. It's a 100-year-old Si-He-Yuan house among the mountain, the east-side-wall of the house is a part of the Great Wall.

Gubeikou is like a Great Wall museum, from Bei Qi dynasty (6th Century) - Ming dynasty (14th Century). that's to say 'the Great Wall was not built in one day'!

Latest Review

" Absolutely amazing place & so close to the wall. Very peaceful and family friendly. Hostel is very modern looking with a staff that go beyond expectations. Spent 3 nights there in order to do 3 hikes & don't regret the decision. You're so close to the wall that you can wake up early and hike 15-20min to the top of the wall over one of its hills and either see the sun rise or the sun set over the village below. The way to the hostel from PEK/Beijing is long, but easy enough to manage solo "
