FD tour to Great Wall at Mutianyu w. Champagne picnic lunch (TUI China- Apr to Oct)


| May 15, 2020

Stretching from the Gobi desert to the Yellow Sea, the Great Wall is the largest man-made structure on earth and an amazing feat of engineering, labour and sacrifice. The original wall was begun 2,000 years ago to keep out marauding nomads. Its construction required hundreds of thousands of political prisoners and an estimated 180 million cubic metres of packed earth. At Mutianyu, a short distance from Beijing, a section with 14 watchtowers is open to the public. The view as you step from the cable car that takes you up to the wall is breathtaking. After exploring the wall, enjoy a champagne picnic lunch from a ridge-top viewpoint above Mutianyu village, with spectacular views of the Great Wall snaking across the skyline and into the distance.
