Walk The Great Wall WG

Visiting: China
Trip Duration 10 Days

Great Wall Of China Walking Holiday

Stretching from the Yellow Sea to the edge of the Gobi Desert, some 4300 kilometres, the magnificent ramparts and watch towers of the Great Wall were built to protect China's northern frontier from raiding Mongol horsemen. Our walk concentrates on some of the most interesting and spectacular sections including the 'Old Dragon's Head' and Jinshanling. This trip really gets off the beaten track and explores rural China.

  • Beijing - Visit Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City
  • Old Dragons Head - Visit the point where the Great Wall meets the sea
  • Jiaoshan - Walk on spectacular sections of the wall near its eastern end
