Beyond the Great Wall
2 days / 1 night(s) from $480 per person twin share
The Great Wall of China is one of the greatest wonders of the world and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. The Wall winds over 5,000km across the deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus from east to west China. The Great Wall at Jinshanling is one of the best-preserved sections with many original features still in tact. The steps of the Great Wall at Jinshanling are rather steep and rocky at times. Hikers should be in good physical condition.
This is a private short stay package for the independent traveller.

You will be met at your Beijing hotel and transferred to your basic guesthouse accommodation at the base of the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall which stretches 5,000km from the Shanhaiguan Pass on the east coast to the Gobi Desert in the west.
