GW11: One Day Volunteer Repair Experience on the Badaling Great Wall

Today, we will take a volunteer day trip to the Badaling Great Wall from Beijing. The day before, your guide will contact you to confirm the exact meeting time, and at the appointed time this morning, he/she will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel and then we drive to the Badaling Great Wall by a clean and comfortable vehicle.

The private drive takes around 1.5 hours. Once we arrive, you will be warmly received by the working staff of the scenic area and later they will brief you on the detailed work, the do's and don'ts of the Great Wall repair volunteer program, and meanwhile distribute tools used for repairing, such as buckets, brushes, gloves, shovels, etc. Accompanied by the restoration experts and the guide, you will experience a lot of interesting tasks, including moving bricks, building a wall, and paving the ground. The whole volunteer work may last about 1 - 1.5 hours. After concluding all the work, you will be free to hike on the Great Wall and enjoy the delightful sightseeing.

At the end of this Beijing to Badaling Great Wall day trip, your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel in the downtown Beijing.

Tour Highlights
Great Wall Volunteer Repair Program
Different from any other Great Wall trips, this Volunteer Repair Program tour would bring you a more interesting and memorable experience. You can not only learn a lot about the wall's long history and culture, but also get real insights into how it is repaired and restored by joining hands-on activities, such as wall building and trail paving. All these activities would be performed on your own under the guidance of the experts and your tour guide. Full of educational significance, the Great Wall Volunteer Repair Program is suitable for both family travelers with kids and overseas student study groups.

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 enjoy a fantastic time 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 great photos, or accomplish the entire hiking journey on the Badaling Great Wall.

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