We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Peking man at Zhoukoudian
Located at Longgu Hill, about 50km southwest of Beijing’s downtown area, this early human site has been shown to be the richest and most comprehensive site. The site was entered into the World Heritage List without an application.

The main cave measures 140 meters from east to west and 53 meters from north to south. At twilight on a cold early winter's evening in 1929, with the help of a lighted candle, archaeologists crawled into the space of this cave and found the extraordinary discovery of a complete early hominid cranium from 500,000 years ago. The name given to it was China Primitive Man, Beijing-type. Or, in short, Beijing Man.

Beijing Man left several tens of thousands of Paleolithic stone tools behind him in this and neighboring caves, made in many shapes and from many types of stone. These can be seen in the exhibition cases of the museum.


Through long periods of experimentation, Beijing Man became familiar with the different uses and chipping qualities of different kinds of stone. Beijing Mans use of fire deserves special mention: these people were in possession of the knowledge of how use fire to cook food, stay warm, give light, and keep off wild animals. The use of fire delineated an epoch-making chapter in the history of man's advancement.
