There are some photos uploaded on this page so it should give you an idea of the area we were in (I think the Great Wall is almost 9,000 km long!). After our trek, we spent the night with a local family at a local village nearby. Apparently this family’s fortunes have increased since the tour company first went there a few years ago. But ...
