Great Wall Camping

Take your favorite bottle of liquor and together with some good friends go and enjoy one of the best traveling experiences of your life. Camping overnight at the Great Wall, you can look up at a sky full of glittering stars. This nighttime Great Wall makes one feel like being in a cradle, its ancient body kindly embracing us. This place has seen the blood and tears of war, and also a thousand years of solitude. Perhaps like us, you are nothing but an adventurous, youthful vigor. Perhaps like us, you love to gaze at the shooting stars and tell stories till sunrise. In the morning you wake to another beautiful clear day, footprints and the echoes of laughter are the only things left behind.

Wulong Valley Great Wall Camping (3 days)

Hiking the Wulonggou Great Wall is an amazing combination from Wild Great Wall, forest, small rivers, and fields with beautiful rock formations. In these remote mountains only shepherds and there flock roam and only few families live in these ancient mountain villages. It takes a 4 hour drive to reach this majestic great wall which makes it unspoiled and extremely well preserved.
