On this 9 day adventure we hike for 5 days along one of the world's most iconic structures - the Great Wall of China! Each day of this challenge we visit and trek along different sections of the Great Wall experiencing the changing landscape and learning about the deep history of each part of the wall - it is a classic adventure - and one to tick off the bucket list!
Our adventure takes us from the 'Wild Wall' at Guibeko with it's crumbling paths and runied watchtowers to the restored 'post-card' views of Mutianyu and Badaling where panoramic views stretch to distant misty mountains over peaceful woodland and terraced fields to exposed ridges and majestic peaks. Away from the wall, we also spend a day trekking in the Black Dragon Pool Park, a spectacular nature reserve set in a deep valley with waterfalls, towering cliffs, crystal clear pools and traditional Chinese buildings. As we complete our 45 km trek after 5 days we head back to Beijing for a celebration and some exploring of one of the world's most fascinating cities.
