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!
In addition to an outstanding Great Wall experience you'll also get to visit one of imperial China's great treasures. This tour starts with a visit to the East Qing Tombs, the burial site for most of China's last ruling dynasty, the Qing. One of the largest and most well-preserved burial sites in China, you'll find five emperors, four empresses and even the infamous Empress Dowager Cixi, China's power behind the throne in the late 19th Century. You'll then be taken to the Great Wall at Huangyaguan. The great thing about Huangyaguan was that it was designed as a miniature version of the entire Great Wall, giving you an understanding of the Great Wall's functions and features without having to walk the whole thing! From there we'll drive to the Eastern Qing tombs, a sprawling tomb complex that many feel is much more exciting than the Ming Tombs. Here is the final resting place of five emperors, four empresses, five imperial concubines, and one princess of China's last imperial dynasty, the Qing.
