Great Wall Hiking: Beijing-Old Dragon's Head and the First Pass - Discovery Tour with China's Bullet Train

With beaches, Great Wall, and hiking, this program has something for everyone! 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. After walking on Old Dragon's Head you'll get to meander around the beach area nearby. The next day you'll be driven to the Jiaoshan Great Wall, which is the highest peak to the north of Shanhaiguan Pass. It is one of the oldest sections of surviving Great Wall, as it was first built during the 14th century.
