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

Days 4-5 Beijing

Journey out to Mutianyu and walk a section of the Wall that has been restored. Admire sweeping views and enjoy a picnic before heading back to Beijing. Enjoy a stop en route at The Eastern Qing Tombs – the final resting place of five great Chinese emperors. This imperial mausoleum complex is the best preserved in the country.
