Description:

The Great Wall of China, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was enlisted in the World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, the Great Wall winds up & down across deserts, grasslands, mountains & plateaus stretching approximately 6,700 kilometers (4,163 miles ) from east to west of China. With a history of more than 2000 years, some of the section of the great wall are now in ruins or even entirely disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur & historical significance.
Hiking on the Great Wall for nine days is design for the Great wall lover. Built to ward off enemies in ancient times, today the Great Wall brings together people from all corners of the world. Hiking along the Great Wall, is substantially different than simply making the usual short visit. You will not only accept a challenge physically, but also obtain a deeper understanding & appreciation of Chinese history & culture, as well as man's creative power.
