Great Wall Adventure Club is the only business authorized by the Great Wall Administration Office to use outdoor camping to global visitors. Some "tour agents" claim that they can do so, but they mean they'll take you to camp somewhere away from the Wall. We don't like that idea. We offer you a geniune camping experienceto "defend" the capital as ancient warriors did in the history.
