Great Wall Of China Walking Tour

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. For over 2000 years it has zigzagged over the mountains and rivers of China like a fabulous dragon. Our walk concentrates on some of the most interesting and spectacular sections, and gives us an insight into China 'off the beaten track'.

Tour Highlights

  • 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
  • Panjiakou - Take a boat trip where the Wall crosses the water
  • Eastern Qing Tombs - Visit the stunning Imperial Tomb Complex of the Qing Dynasty near Zunhua
  • Jinshanling - Beautiful section with numerous beacon towers
