What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Great Wall of China and Longqingxia Ravine Day Tour

Longqingxia Ravine Day Trip

Depart from your Beijing hotel in a luxurious, private vehicle and admire the splendid scenery as you travel to the Badaling section of the Great Wall of China. Listen as your guide sets the historical scene of the ancient and arguably best-preserved section of the 2,000-year-old world wonder and disembark on arrival to explore the section on foot. 

Marvel at 19 impressive towers and gaze at sweeping countryside vistas from a maximum height of 3,000 feet (915 meters) above sea level. Ascend either the north or south face of the wall to see even more spectacular sights and capture photographs of the Great Wall snaking off into the distance. 

Appease your appetite with a traditional Chinese lunch and then continue by private vehicle to the Longqingxia Ravine, also known as the Dragon’s Rejoice Ravine. Gaze at the iconic landscape made up of epic rivers and colossal mountains and marvel at the prominent peak of Jiguanshan, Rooster Crow Mountain, named so because it resembles a sleeping rooster. Opt to rent a boat (own expense) for a unique perspective of the lush landscape.  

Conclude your tour at the renowned Longdi Jade Factory, a traditional establishment in which beautiful jade souvenirs are hand carved. Purchase unique souvenirs from the gift shop before returning to your comfortable vehicle for the journey back to your Beijing hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We got a friendly and athletic young lady guide. She was astute in suggesting that we ascend the Great Wall in the opposite direction of the crowd, ensuring a relaxing ascent without having to jostle with the rest of the crowd. When we went in June, this was a new trip for the tour company. The guide and driver were not familiar with the route to the ravine but everything went smoothly with the aid of a GPS. Long Qing Xia was a departure from the usual tourist crowded places and definitely worth the one hour drive there. It was a tranquil and beautiful scene to behold. The guide could have provided more explanation about the places we were visiting but otherwise we enjoyed ourselves very much!
