The Great Wall of China stretches some 6,000km across the country, from the Gobi Desert in the West to the crashing waves and rocks of Shanhaiguan in the East. One of the seven wonders of the medieval world, it is one of the most iconic sites known and can even be spotted from space!
Whilst some sections have been remodled, rebuilt and improved over the years, there are many that are wild and natural as the wall snakes its way through the countryside, up and down the hills and through the villages. Climbing through the different vegetation zones and reaching the peak of this natural phenomenon, will leave you with a sense of achievement quite like no other.
Starting in Beijing visiting the sights of the city, we then head out of the hustle and bustle to the quiet villages and countryside for our walks on the Great Wall. Over our 8 day trip, we’ll be exploring different sections of the wall in Beijing, Gubeikou, Jinshanling and Mutianyu with a full day hike from Mutianyu to Jiankou to complete the adventure. Pack your hiking shoes for a once in a lifetime experience along the Great Wall of China!
