Both Sides of the Great Wall
Land of Genghis Khan
the first time in travel history, a specialized journey featuring China and Mongolia has been arranged to
provide an enthralling view of the Great Wall, the least
known and most misunderstood of the world’s wonders, and the cultural clash
which created it. Both Sides begins in China, by exploring the Great
Wall in its wildest most atmospheric form, as Wild Wall north
of the Ming’s ancient capital.
Our hosts are William Lindesay and Wu Qi (read about William’s full length
traverse of the Great Wall at (www.wildwall.com).
After five days’ exploring Wild Wall, staying at the couple’s renovated and
modernized Wallside farmhouse, we journey north to Mongolia to see the life of
Genghis Khan’s warrior descendants. After visiting key historical sights in
the Nation's capital, Ulaanbaatar, we
journey eastwards by jeep into the Khentii Mountains.
Here the young warrior Temujin grew up to become the founder of the Mongol
Empire - Chinggis (Genghis) Khan. Staying in traditional Mongolian gers we
explore historical sights in this region by jeep, on horseback and by foot,
gaining first hand experience of the lifestyle of today's nomadic herders.
