For those that have a little more time to spend in Beijing, and whose interest in the Great Wall runs a little deeper than the average tourist, our 2-day Great Wall programs are a perfect way to sate your Great Wall appetite! With these two day programs, you'll be able to spend more time on the Great Wall, see more of China's natural beauty, explore relatively unknown sections, and even sleep on the wall itself! (for more information about sleeping on the Great Wall see Routes 2X, 2AA and 2AB) As with all of our other programs, you will receive nothing but the best service and guidance.
In accordance with our 1-day programs, you will be picked up in the morning by your travel guide and driver. Your travel guide, who has gone through the strictest safety criteria in the country, will be with you at all times during your Great Wall hike, ensuring your safety while also imparting you with his/her vast knowledge of the Great Wall. In addition, all heavy camping materials and provisions will be provided (such as tents when sleeping on the Great Wall). The parts of the Great Wall we will encounter are often empty, allowing you to have some quality one-on-one time with one of the world's great wonders. For those hearty outdoor types who live a challenge and trying something new, this is the perfect way to explore the Great Wall of China!
This tour starts out in the City of Chengde, which served as the summer retreat for emperors of the Qing Dynasty looking to beat the heat of Beijing. Here you will visit the sprawling and magnificent Summer Resort, along with the Small Potala Palace, a grand Buddhist temple that is a recreation of the Potala Palace of Tibet. The next day you will be taken to the Great Wall at Xifengkou, where you will begin your hike. Due to the nearby construction of the Panjiakou Reservoir, part of the wall here runs underwater, making for a unique and rare site among Great Wall sections. Largely unvisited, you will be able to stretch out your legs and roam, allowing yourself to have a much more intimate Great Wall experience.
