Take a trip through the eastern-most reaches of the Great Wall, the ocean!

Via bullet train, we will set out to Qinhuangdao, a pleasant beach area, where you will get to explore Shanhaiguan, which is known as the “First Pass of the World”. During your hike you will pass over into Old Dragon's Head, which is the eastern-most point of the Great Wall, lying just off the Bohai Sea. You'll have the rest of the day to wander around the beach nearby. The next day we'll proceed to the Great Wall at Jiaoshan, which is divided into restored and unrestored sections, and you'll experience both on your walk, allowing you to compare and contrast the two styles. We'll eventually cross over onto the Sandaoguan Great Wall, where some of the wall was built on cliffs at an angle of 90 degrees! Your last day will start with a trek on the Jiumenkou Great Wall, and from there will descend to Huangtuying village to see the ruins of an anceint fortress.
