Day 7 China -The Great Wall

Day 6 in Beijing involved a visit to the Great Wall of China – always a highlight of any tour of China and an essential part of an itinerary. Our tour guide took us to Mutianyu entry point. The wall is set in picturesque mountainous country but is a steep climb.

The students and some adults made the climb to the wall but there was a cable car to take the adults who were not so fit to the wall. The option of a toboggan ride down appealed to the students but unfortunately, rain forced that activity to be closed. It is certainly awe inspiring to look at the nature of and the great length of the wall from the many guard towers. Tower number 1 was the furthest point that could be walked to as it then reverted to the original and wild wall.


Lunch was in a restaurant near the bus carpark. It had lovely views down the mountain. The afternoon was spent driving to a traditional tea house and tasting a variety of Chinese teas.
