Walk one of the seven wonders of the world

Reiserute

  • Day 1: Arrive Beijing; free afternoon and Beijing duck dinner
    After arriving into Beijing, the afternoon is free to relax after the overnight flight. There is a welcome dinner organised for the group allowing us to sample one of the cities most famous dishes: Beijing duck. Vegetarians, do not fear - there will be an array of different dishes on a lazy Susan to choose from. Dong Fang Hotel or similar
  • Day 2: Drive to Huanghuacheng Great Wall section; afternoon begin trekking.
    This morning we leave the capital and head into the countryside to the Great Wall, a 2-2.5 hour journey to the north west of the city. We reach the lesser-visited section at Huanghuacheng, which has an incredibly picturesque location by a lake. The name Huanhuacheng translates as 'Yellow Flower City', as during the summer the surrounding mountains are swathed in yellow as the local wild flowers come into bloom. The walk today is relatively challenging and with uneven topography, but the views are worth every effort! We will spend the night in a guesthouse close to this section of the wall. Huanghuacheng Guesthouse or similar
  • Day 3: Morning trek from Mutianyu to Jiankou, passing many watchtowers.
    Today we take a short drive (1-1.5 hours) to Mutianyu. At this lesser-visited section, the Wall is an impressive sight indeed, snaking off across mountains and valleys into the distance. As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu section used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs. There are 22 watchtowers (20 of which are open to the public) on this 2,250-metre-long section. We trek to Jiankou and then transfer a short distance to enjoy the hospitality of a local guesthouse. Hai Yan Guesthouse or similar
  • Day 4: A challenging but beautiful morning trek at Jiankou’s ‘wild’ wall; transfer to Gubeikou and explore this section.
    The Jiankou wild wall section was built along a mountain edge and remains completely wild, with towers clinging impossibly to the steepest of ridges. Highlights of the day include "Spiderman Wall", or "Sanshibadeng" in Chinese; an optional short vertical climb to the top of the wall for a panoramic view (those who are not a fan of climbing/heights can walk around and regroup at the viewpoint). This area is the most photographed section of the Great Wall due to the unique construction style combined with stunning scenery. We walk along this portion for approx. 4 km before transferring to Gubeikou where we walk or about another 4 km. Mr Liu's Guesthouse or similar
  • Day 5: Hike the Great Wall Jinshanling section; transfer back to Gubeikou.
    Today we walk the length of the Jinshanling Great Wall section (from Zhuandoukou Tower to Eastern Five Window Tower), which is renowned for being the best-preserved part of the Great Wall and dates from the Ming Dysnasty (1368-1644). This section reaches seven metres high and six metres wide and incorporates five main passes, sixty-seven watchtowers and two beacon towers as it zig-zags its way through the Big and Small Jinshan Mountains (the Big and Small Jinshan Watchtowers are the highlight). The construction is of huge bricks, each weighing around 12 kilograms (26 pounds) and this section features various structures which were used for an array of functions ranging from weapon stores to soldiers’ bedrooms. At the end of the day, we descend to a village and transfer by road to Gubeikou for the night. Mr Liu's Guesthouse or similar
  • Day 6: The most challenging walk today along the Panlongshan section; return to Gubeikou for the night.
    Today we hike along Gubeikou's Panlongshan Section. This portion keeps the original essence of the wall and will transport us back to the time of the Han Dynasty. We will pass many watchtowers until we reach the unique 24 Window Tower (3 level tower). Once here, we will have a late picnic lunch on the watchtower, and then double back on ourselves for about half the way, following the stone steps past a communal playground to meet our driver who will transfer us back to the guesthouse. Mr Liu's Guesthouse or similar
  • Day 7: Majiagou Hill walk with views of Crouching Tiger Great Wall; drive to Beijing via Niangniang Temple.
    Today you will discover the part of Gubeikou's Great Wall known as, Majiagou Hill. Gubeikou's GW was first built in the 6th century and has not been reconstructed since 1644. It is somewhat dilapidated but it still retains its original beauty. Your steep ascent will start from the northern gate and once you reach the top watchtower you will enjoy some great views of Crouching Tiger Great Walll. We retrace our steps back to today's starting point and drive to Niangniang Daoist Temple for a visit before continuing to Beijing (approx. 3 hours). Dong Fang Hotel or similar
  • Day 8: Beijing city tour visiting hutongs, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
    We take a morning walking tour of the city's hutongs (narrow alleys) to see what is left of old Beijing and its traditions. We also visit Tian’anmen Square; the largest in the world and able to hold over a million people. Later in the day, we visit the Forbidden City with its innumerable courtyards and temples. This evening, recommended optional activities include the amazing Beijing opera or a Kung Fu show, or you may prefer to opt for a foot reflexology treatment to sooth your weary feet! The leader will also arrange a farewell dinner (optional). Beijing is a fantastic place to explore at your own pace; if you wish to add on any additional time please speak to your sales consultant at the time of booking. Dong Fang Hotel or similar
  • Day 9: End Beijing
    Our trips ends today in Beijing after breakfast.

Viktig Informasjon & destinasjonsvideo

Food
All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners are included. Food is cheap in China and you can avoid the spicier regional food if you wish. The cuisine on this trip is fantastically varied with lots of new flavours and 'things' to try. Gastronomically the trip can be divided into two parts: 'tourist hotels' and 'local hotels'. In tourist hotels the breakfast is normally a buffet, with a huge spread of Chinese and western food, including coffee, juice, breads, cakes, fruit, eggs, bacon and a wide variety of noodle and stir fried dishes. Dinners are normally taken in the hotel or local restaurants, serving rice with assorted vegetables, pork, fish, chicken and duck dishes with flavours roughly approximating those you would find in a Chinese restaurant in the UK. In the local hotels, breakfast includes rice porridge, dumplings, eggs, noodles, etc, however, we tend to augment this with fruit and cakes where available. Dinners are taken in local restaurants where the food is heavily flavoured with ginger, garlic bamboo shoots and chilli. Lunches are taken in local village restaurants and will normally consist of noodle soup or stir fried vegetable noodles. Expect an audience most lunches as the locals crowd around to watch the 'big noses' trying to master the use of chopsticks! Vegetarians are well catered for but please inform us before departure of any special dietary requests. Please note that in China the availability of certain specialized products for restricted diets, e.g. gluten-free or dairy-free, is minimal or non-existent and we strongly recommend you bring these specialized dietary items from home. Strict vegetarians may find the diet rather limited to stir fried vegetables and eggs as all the soups are made with meat stock.
