Physical Requirements
Moderate
Travelers must be able to walk unassisted (without the use of walking aids) a minimum of two miles over uneven ground in order to participate in this extension. Our Beijing Extension includes two very full days of exploration, beginning with early morning departures. While exploring Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, we will be walking up to 4-5 hours in duration in an extremely crowded area that offers very few benches or rest seating areas. In order to participate in the Great Wall excursion, you must also be able to walk 75 yards up a fairly steep incline with some steps in order to reach the gondola. From the gondola disembarkation area, you must climb another set of stairs to get to the top of the wall itself. Walking along the wall requires navigating an uneven stone path with short climbs and descents, interspersed with many sets of stairs.
Important Information About This Trip
On this extension our primary focus is visiting two of China's most famous cultural monuments.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
You will be picked up at the hotel in Chengdu on the final day of your main itinerary and transferred to the airport for your flight to Beijing. You will spend two nights in Beijing and are free to schedule your departing flight from Beijing at any time on the final day of the extension. We can best serve you if Natural Habitat Adventures' Travel Desk makes these reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can make the most efficient arrangements. Please call us at 800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
