Backpacker Great Wall Trek (2 Days)
Explore the Great Wall far away from the crowds, where it is untouched and taken over by nature in all its rough glory. At other places standing tall, as a reminder of the past. Of ancient history. But regardless, it will give you breath-taking views as far as your eye can see. Then back to earth, to a local farmer’s homestay, where you will spend the night and take part in daily life and trying your hands on Chinese dishes. You will be spoilt for choice on your second day. Should you explore the local quiet and beautiful countryside on two wheels or should you continue your explorations of the Great Wall, following a beautiful lakeside trail? The choice is yours and regardless of your chosen path, you will go back to Urban Beijing with a breath of fresh countryside air and magnificent mountain views in your memory.
