Great Wall Hiking Experience of A Lifetime
As a magnificent defensive system stretching over 21, 000 km (13,050 mi), the Great Wall is more than an icon of China, but an enduringly man-made wonder in the world. Today, you will launch a fantastic free trekking journey on the Great Wall. Badaling, the most typical and best-preserved section of the wall, will reward you with awe-inspiring landscapes and sceneries by snaking through the precipitous mountain ridges as far as one cannot see. You could take a leisurely walk around to take some great photos, or accomplish the entire hiking journey on Badaling Great Wall.
Enjoy your time at the Badaling Great Wall after the volunteer experience

1. Please wear casual clothes and comfortable shoes as you are going to exert yourself a bit to do the repair work and take some hiking after that.
2. It's hardly to find a shade on the Great Wall, so you'd better prepare hats, sunglasses and sunscreen in case of sunburn.
3. The lunch is on your own, but our guide will be glad to make recommendations on nearby restaurants catering to your preference. Alternatively, you could have big breakfast in the morning and pack some easy-carry snacks for a meal.
