Walk atop the Great Wall of China

Experience the Great Wall of China in all its glory by taking a stroll along this ancient highway. Dating back 2,000 years, the Great Wall was originally made of compacted earth and was envisaged as a way to keep out marauding nomads from the north. While this structure is beginning to show its incredible age, it is still remarkable to see these ancient ruins twisting their way across the countryside. Visit several reinforced and restored sections of the wall and take a guided walk along this monolithic structure. Travel at a leisurely pace and enjoy a picnic amid the breathtaking scenery of the Chinese countryside. Complemented with time in Beijing, this Great Wall adventure is a wonderful way to experience one of the world’s most iconic sights and to see imperial China at its grandest.

  • Enjoy a picnic lunch atop the Great Wall
  • Trek along both original and reconstructed sections of the Wall
  • Discover the delights of Beijing

About China

Wander the Great Wall Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Beijing

Beijing has a long and colourful history and this rapidly modernising city is an amazing whirl of ancient sites, modern buildings, bicycles, people, shops and eateries.

Days 2-3 Great Wall

Snaking over the landscape for 8,851 km, the building of China's Great Wall started in the 5th century BC with the aim of protecting China's northern borders from invading Mongolian hordes. Jinshanling is a mountainous area with an attractive section of the Great Wall, which zigzags up the steep terrain and straddles peaks like a suspension bridge.

Days 4-5 Beijing

This populous Chinese city can trace its origins back to the 11th century BC. With an energy that exists little place else, Beijing will no doubt leave you breathless.
