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.

Explore the "Vanishing Old Beijing" Subway Self Guided TourTake Subway Line 5 and get off at the stop of Yonghegong (雍和宫 Lama Temple ) and exit from Exit C or D. Lama Temple, also called the Yonghe Lamasery, or Yonghegong. It is the most impressive Buddhist temple in the city. Lama Temple was constructed in the 33 Qing Kangxi year (1694) and it is now the largest and best-preserved Lamasery of Yellwo Sect in Beijing. It was the residence of Emperor Yongzheng before his ascending to the throne. However, in 1744 the Qing Dynasty formally turned the dwelling to that of a lamasery, and so Yonghe Lamasery became the national centre of Lama administration.
