6 Days Beijing Great Wall Hiking TourEnquiry

The Great Wall is one of the most well known symbols of China. Chairman Mao once said “He who does not climb the Great Wall is not a true man”. Trekking on The Great Wall of China will be an unforgettable experience for any visitor.

Please Note: Unfortunately the Great Wall has mostly collapsed over time or been destroyed by modern civilisation and only a few sections remain in good shape. This itinerary may need to be adjusted to reflect ongoing Great Wall renovations or closures.
