DAY 03: BEIJING
After breakfast, drive about 70km to the Mutianyu Section of the Great Wall to witness one of the world’s most spectacular sights. Zig zagging some 6000 kilometres across barren hills, deserts and mountains, the now partially ruinous Great Wall stretches from east to west in northern China and was constructed over a period of 2000 years. The wall is steep in sections but the photo opportunities are well worth the effort. There may also be an opportunity to settle down for a picnic lunch on the Great Wall, while savouring superb views of the countryside.
OPTIONAL: Those who do not want to hike down can use cable car or toboggan ride to the base (additional costs apply).
In the afternoon, continue our trip to Solemn Sacred Way, a 7-km long passage leading to the Imperial Tombs of 13 Emperors of Ming Dynasty. It was considered to be the road leading to heaven. Take a walk through the largest archway in China and you will see stone memorial arch, Great Red Gate, a stele pavilion, stone statues and the Dragon and Phoenix Gate. Afterwards, drive back to Beijing city and relive the excitement of the 2008 Olympic Games with a photo stop at the magnificent Bird Nest Stadium and the Water Cube.
For dinner, the flavorful dishes of Peking Roast Duck or Hot Pot, Mongolian Style will be arranged for you.
