The Great Wall of China was originally constructed to keep out nomadic tribes who raided China's Northern frontier.

Your trekking challenge starts in Badaling where you will walk with a vigorous trek along an unrenovated section of the wall that weaves its way along the mountains.

Each day you will trek along the stony, steep and sometimes slippery path, some sections are renovated and others not - twisting and winding its way along the mountains, interspersed with crumbling watchtowers.

It is demanding but also very rewarding, particularly on a clear day when you can look at the vast and beautiful mountain ranges. Your imagination will take you back several centuries to when the wall was the frontline defence of Imperial China.

On completion of your challenge you will return to Beijing to explore some of the many attractions of China's capital city including the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. All site entrance fees and Beijing guide and transport included.
