Trek the Great Wall of China

Trek the Great Wall of China

Summary

Take on the Dragon's Back on our bewitching Dream Challenge trekking on and alongside the Great Wall of China!

Straight away, we'll gain enthralling insight into the ancient cultures and landscape of China trekking in the remote town of Huangyaguan. From here, the Great Wall leads us through emerald green countryside, tiny farming villages unused to tourists, and traditional local towns. We'll trek on a range of terrains as we walk on the Great Wall itself and the trails nearby it.

It's no mean feat as we encounter rugged paths, mighty climbs, and even a section of forest. The hills will leave us breathless but brimming with pride as we look over the stunning panoramas of rural China. We'll meet local people, stay in traditional Chinese guesthouses, and discover China’s rich history.

We finish our magnificent challenge at Jinshanling and step from the ancient past into the future with a free day in Beijing!

In this extraordinary city, ancient history collides with futuristic technology. We'll celebrate in the best way, with a fantastic guided tour of Beijing's world-famous sites, including the Forbidden City Palace Complex Museum, the iconic Royal Lakeside Retreat of the Summer Palace and the infamous plaza of Tiananmen Square.
