Great Wall of China
Your China Great Wall Trek challenge starts on the ancient wall of Badaling with a tough trek along an un-renovated section of the wall as you climb along the top of the mountains.
Each day you will walk on a different section of the wall, some renovated and others not, with hugely varying views and landscapes. The wall is amazing as it winds its way on top of the mountain ridges, interspersed with watchtowers and beacons.
Upon completion of your challenge trekking on the wall, you will return to Beijing and will have a day to explore. You will visit the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven, take part in a traditional Tea Ceremony, taste the delights of the night food market and experience the acupressure foot massage.
