Centuries after its construction, China’s Great Wall remains one of humankind’s engineering marvels. At over 21,000 kilometres in length, the Wall is a trip in and of itself. You won’t tackle the whole thing on this 10-day trek, but you’ll return home with a deeper understanding of the life that goes on around and upon it. The Beijing-to-Beijing route will take you to small villages that have stood for centuries in the shadow of this massive tribute to human will and introduce you to the cuisine, culture and history that make this one of China’s most captivating attractions. The Wall’s been standing for centuries. Isn’t it about time you turned up?
