Chengde-Panjiakou and Xifengkou Featuring Great Wall under Water

In addition to seeing some wonderful natural scenery and “wild” Great Wall, you'll also get to visit one of China's richest historical towns. Your tour beings in the City of Chengde (a few hours outside of Beijing). Chengde was the Qing Dynasty's summer retreat, as emperors made their way hear to escape the heat and scrutiny of Beijing. Once in Chengde you'll visit the vast and marvelous Summer Resort, which served as the residence of the emperor. You'll also see the Little Potala Palace, a grand imitation of the Potala Palace of Tibet. The next day you'll start your hike at the Xifengkou Great Wall, an unrestored section where part of the Great Wall runs underwater! After sleeping in a nearby farmer's house, you'll finish your trek the next day.
