As one of the most famous landmarks on the planet, the Great Wall of China is likely to be high on the list of anyone taking an adventure holiday to China. ALL Imaginative Traveller adventure tours to China include a trip to the Great Wall. We climb the wall at a less visited section than the more popular tourist spot at Badaling. This section, about two and a half hours from Beijing, offers awe-inspiring scenery as it winds through the mountains, displays several spectacular watchtowers and enjoys fewer crowds. No adventure tour to China is complete without taking a walk along the Great Wall!
The Great Wall of China stretches for more than 5,000 miles
It is known as the largest military and man-made structure in the world
Construction started around 220 BC and continued for around 1700 years
Over a million people reportedly died working on it
The wheelbarrow, much used during construction, was invented by the Chinese
You cannot see it from space!
