Depart from your Beijing hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and relax during the scenic drive to the Mutianyu section of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Upon arriving at the Great Wall of China, listen as your guide offers an engaging narrative about China’s most impressive engineering feat.
Begin your ascent of more than 1,400 steps to the top of the section and marvel at verdant valleys, ancient watchtowers and preserved parapets as you climb. Snap photographs at the summit and take in the scenery, free from the disruption of large crowds.
Refuel with a traditional Chinese lunch after your climb and browse a cloisonné enamelware factory for special souvenirs. Rest during the journey back to your Beijing hotel, where the tour concludes.
