It’s easy to forget that this spectacular monument was also once home to thousands of Chinese soldiers, braced to do battle with invaders from beyond China’s border. But what was it like to actually be one of them? Where did they sleep, eat and rest? How did they alert each other to an invasion? (Clue: it involves wolves!) What weapons did they use to defend themselves? And how did it feel to be attacked by thousands of fierce Mongols without warning? Your guide will bring the past back to life on this ramble along a gorgeous, ‘wild’ section of the Gubeikou Great Wall, the site of more than 130 ancient battles. And with almost no other tourists around, it won’t be hard to imagine just how epic this Wonder of the World once was.
