Tour Itinerary:
Pick up from your hotel in Beijing and transferred to Beijing Train Station. Then take Train D21 (07:20am – 09:19am) for Qinhuangdao. Met by our representative in Qinhuangdao and freshen up. First we head to the Jiaoshan Great Wall to the east of Shanhaiguan. Jiaoshan is the first mountain peak of the Great Wall from Shanhaiguan. Therefore people call it “the first peak of the Great Wall”. This section of the Great Wall was built during the reign of Emperor Hongwu (1328-1398) of the Ming Dynasty, and it extends about 1500 meters. You are arranged to take a chairlift to the top, and then hike down the Great Wall. This section of the Great Wall is quite precipitous! Mind your steps while hiking.
After Chinese lunch, continue to visit the First Pass under Heaven at Shanhaiguan for one hour visit. The First Pass under Heaven is considered the No.1 pass of the Great Wall. Built in Ming Dynasty around 700 years ago, the pass city used to be an important defense city against intrusions by the nomadic people from the north. The city was sandwiched by the Yanshan Mountains in the north and the Bohai Sea in the south, hence the name of Shanhaiguan meaning “Pass between Mountains and Sea’ in Chinese. To the south of the ancient city is Laolongtou or Old Dragon’s head, the north is Jiaoshan Great Wall.
Then move on to visit Old Dragon’s Head (Laolongtou), the easternmost end of the Great Wall, which extends 23 meters into the sea, like a dragon drinking water, hence its name. This part of the Great Wall was first constructed in the 7th year of Wanli reign in the Ming dynasty (1579) and was largely repaired in the 7th year of Kangxi reign in the Qing dynasty (1668).
After the whole day tour, you are arranged to take Train D8 (19:47 – 21:47) back to Beijing. Met and returned to your hotel in Beijing.
