- Short Breaks, Walking
Day 1 Beijing
Begin your adventure in China’s charismatic capital. Explore the city at your own pace. Perhaps select gifts from the delicate scarves and shawls at the silk markets, take a ride in a rickshaw, visit Tiananmen Square or hunt down some delicious Peking Duck. Maybe pick up some snacks for tomorrow’s big walk.
Days 2-3 Great Wall
Head out to the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall to start your trek. Follow narrow zig-zagging paths atop this phenomenal structure. This section of wall is unreconstructed – admire the ruined watchtowers and watch your footing as you climb the crumbling staircases. On a clear day, you can see myriad mountain ranges lacing the horizon
