๐Ÿ’Ž Why we love it ?

The 14-day China Tibet tour takes us first to Beijing, the political center of China. By modern high-speed train, we drive southwest to Xian, an ancient imperial city. From here we take a flight to the holy city Lhasa. You have two days for the attractions: Potala, Jokhang, Norbulingka, and Sera. We reach Chengdu, the capital of the province of Sichuan, the hometown of Panda. On the journey in south China, the picturesque karst landscape of Guilin and Yangshuo should not be missed. Then drive to the Longji Terraces, one of the most beautiful cultural landscapes in the world, and meet with some people of the Zhuang minority. Finally, we arrive in the modern harbor city Shanghai in East China.

Day 2: Beijing (B)

Hiking and sightseeing on the Great Wall at Mutianyu
In the morning go to the Great Wall at Mutianyu (about 70 km in the northeast of Beijing). The local section of the Great Wall built in 1368 and restored in 1983, is particularly attractive with its numerous watchtowers along the picturesque ridge in green, gently undulating landscape. The Great Wall was built as a defensive line against attacks by warlike steppe people from the north and was constantly expanded and strengthened, so the strategic passes with barracks, watchtowers, and storage rooms were expanded to the fortress. The Great Wall is one of the eight ancient wonders of the world and the only man-made construction on earth that the astronauts can see on the moon. Starting out in the east on the banks of Yalu River in Liaoning Province, the Wall stretches westwards for 12,700 kilometers to Jiayuguan in the Gobi Desert. It gradually becomes the symbol of ancient Chinese civilization. It is about 2 to 3 hours for walking on the Great Wall. In the afternoon return to Beijing.
