Trek along one of the ancient wonders of the world
Twisting its way from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most inspiring architectural achievements.
On this amazing adventure, you’ll travel to the core of China’s ancient culture. Over five days, you’ll trek along the Great Wall, between mist-covered mountains, into local villages, across undulating farmlands and through thick forest.
With the expertise of a local guide, you’ll discover the many features of the Great Wall, decrypting the ancient stories and poems imprinted into its watchtowers—every brick telling a tale of war and adventure.
Exchanging the grandeur of the Great Wall for the liveliness of Beijing, you are quickly absorbed in China’s mystifying and divergent culture. Explore the ancient history of the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, experience the tragedy of Tiananmen Square and marvel at the modernity of the 798 Art District.
