On route you’ll pass the grand entrance to the Imperial burial site, The Sacred Way, a decorative walkway lined with impressive sized statues of significance and meaning. Get a glimpse into China’s rich imperial past with the architecture, distinctive wood carvings and ancient relics seen.

After lunch travel to the Huanghuacheng Wall, hike along this wild, original, less visited section, once built in the Ming Dynasty, as part of the inner wall to protect Beijing from a northern invasion.  It’s also the only section close to a man-made lake. When the Xishuiyu Dam was built, the wall that crossed the valley floor was flooded. Your guide will show you where to climb the ramparts, and safely navigate the wall to admire the views and the wall cascading into the lake below.
