China is world famous for its Great Wall and on May 28 and 29, 2018 Summit Experience Guide Tom Connelly took 4 clients from the United States on a two trek of the Great Wall that combined unrestored “wild” sections and restored sections of the wall. The trek took place on the Jiankou and Mutianyu sections of the wall about 100 kilometers outside of Beijing.

The trek was an outstanding success as the clients were spellbound by the scenery of the wall and the local mountains. The weather was clear which added to the clarity of the portraits and the morale of the overall experience. In all, the clients learned that all true heroes climb the Great Wall!

Unique to the trip was the opportunity to stay at a local farmer’s house at the end of the first day of the trek. Not only did the clients marvel and the local hospitality, but they were also able to enjoy the delicious cuisine homegrown from local farmer’s gardens.

Trekking along the Great Wall was a dream come true for this family from America. It’s safe to say that there needs and desires were met as they commented that the trek along the Great Wall was the best part of the most memorable vacation they have had in many, many years!
