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.

History:Yichang has a history of more than 4000 years. In ancient times Yichang was known as Yiling. There are historical records telling that in the year 278 BC during the Warring States period, the Qin general Bai Qi set fire to Yiling. In 222 AD Yichang was also the site of the Battle of Yiling during the Three Kingdoms Period.

In 1876, under the Qing Guangxu Emperor, Yichang was opened to foreign trade as a trading port after the Second Opium War with Britain. In 1940, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Battle of Zaoyang-Yichang took place in the area.

Climate: Yichang belongs to the humid, monsoon climate of the subtropics, with abundant rainfall throughout the year. The average temperature is around 17o C (62.6o F).

Although Yichang is less hot than Wuhan (Wuhan is renowned as one of China's "oven cities", due to its blistering-hot summer weather), it is still very hot and humid during summer, by any measure. In winter, Yichang is damp and freezing cold. The best time to visit Yichang is therefore during spring and autumn.
