‘He who has not climbed the Great Wall is not a true man.’ (Mao Zedong)

Trekking the Great Wall of China features on almost every travel bucket list. China’s greatest engineering triumph, it has been named one of the New Wonders of the World. No visit to Beijing would be complete without a visit to this extraordinary construction.

The Great Wall Discovery tour is an authentic, small group experience that bypasses the shops and factories. It is a hassle free tour that is all about the Wall.

Beginning with an early morning pickup, this popular tour gets a head start on the crowds, leaving Beijing before the other tourist groups. Arriving at Mutianyu ahead of the masses, you will be treated to unprecedented views across the surrounding countryside, peaks and hills.

Seventy kilometres northeast of central Beijing, Mutianyu is a spectacular section of the Great Wall of China that has been beautifully restored. It is a short hike to reach Mutianyu or, if you are unable to climb, you can take the nearby cable car.

After soaking up the stunning scenery and architecture of Mutianyu, the tour continues with a trek along the Wall, visiting watchtowers and discovering local myths and legends as you go. Your local guide will keep you engaged with fascinating facts and stories.

As the the time comes to descend, you have several options to choose from. You can go down on foot, by cable car or, if you dare, on a toboggan!

The tour ends with a delicious local lunch, where you can sample Chinese delicacies before journeying back to Beijing.
