Overview

Spend a Night under the Stars on the Great Wall of China, Assist Researchers and Biologists with the Care of China’s Giant Pandas, Explore the Ancient Relics and Modern Sights of Timeless Beijing, Discover a Colorful Mountain Culture in a Traditional Village in China’s Yunnan Province, and more on this 21-Day Program

From the modern metropolis of Beijing to rice farming villages in Western China, immerse yourself in a country where modern culture and ancient history meet. Explore the wonder of Beijing and take in the history of this ancient city while exploring famous sites such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Then soak in the grandeur of the Great Wall in a once in a lifetime experience as you set up your tent to spend the night on this ancient wonder. Leaving Beijing behind we travel to Western China, the home of the beloved Giant Panda. We go behind the scenes to assist wildlife biologists and handlers cleaning panda facilities, preparing food, and feeding this highly endangered species. Next we make our way to the foothills of the Himalayas and teach English to village school children, and help improve rural village infrastructure while experiencing some of the most astounding landscape known to man. We return to “modern” civilization as we take in the bright lights of Shanghai’s famous Bund and enjoy a final feast along the wharf, reflecting on all we’ve learned of this rich, ancient, and mysterious culture that has withstood the test of time.
