Jankou was built in the Ming Dynasty, like much of what remains of the Great Wall of China.  Rammed earth was replaced with bricks and what you see today is what was built in 1368.  No one has ever restored Jiankou, which adds to the adventure.  Some watchtowers were in extraordinary shape given you their age.

The hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu is about 10km and will take you 4~5 hours ( including stops for photos, cable car ride off the wall toward the shuttle bus lot ).  Combined with a 2+ hour drive in both directions and a lunch stop, that makes it a full day adventure.
