Wei-Jin Tombs
Impressive underground tombs placed in a surrounding area of 7.7 square miles approximately. They constitute one of the world’s vastest underground art circuits. We will visit one of the tombs that represent the epoch’s daily life through a few images painted in a tiny space. It is very well preserved and it is a highly recommendable visit.

Jiayuguan Pass
The most western area of the Great Wall was very important due to its strategic location. For many centuries it worked as the Chinese border for the Silk Road. This used to be the place where the border officers produced the passports for the travellers, writing their personal details and drawing their portraits by hand.

Overhanging Great Wall
Discover one of the less visited sections of the Great Wall and also one of the driest, where we could observe the sculptures that commemorate the Silk Road. This complex will give you a completely different point of view and you will have time to take singular pictures.

Great Wall’s Original Tower
A real witness of the beginning of the construction of the Great Wall, initiated during the Ming Dynasty. Only a few people have reached this point.

Hanging Bridge and reproduction of an ancient village in the Gobi Desert
Venture along this chilling hanging bridge surrounded by an impressive landscape and very close to a reproduction of an ancient village located in the Gobi Desert where many films have been recorded.

With the aim of offering the best price and promote the local economy, we have included a daily visit to a touristic interesting shop (buying is optional). These shops are interesting for adults and especially for children because they usually offer exhibitions about the different production processes with duration no longer than 20 minutes. If the client is not interested in this kind of visits, we can exclude them from the itinerary, but an extra cost will be applied to the final price.

In remote areas of China is possible that we couldn’t satisfy the same requirements of western food, amenities and facilities that could be expected from more developed cities such as Shanghai or Beijing. We beg for your sympathy and understanding.
