Trip Highlights - This tour takes you to explore Jiuquan, known in popular legend as the place where rhubarb was first grown and is also the town where the Portuguese Jesuit missionary and explorer Bento de Gois was robbed and died destitute. The citys name came from legendary tale of the young Han general Huo Qubing, who poured a jar of precious wine into a local creek in order to share the taste with his troops, in celebration of their crushing victory against Xiongnu forces. The creek was later named Jiu Quan ("Wine Spring"). It was an active military garrison during the Later Han Dynasty.

Attraction Description
The Great Wall of China is so spectacular that like the colossus at Rhodes and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, it can be said to be one of the greatest wonders of the world. This is one of the largest manmade structures ever constructed and stretches across the mountains of Northern China surrounding the north and northwest sides of Beijing. Local villages and farms have used the great wall as a source of building materials over the last few centuries and as aerial photographs have shown, some sections of the great wall has only the top battlements still remaining, with the center of the wall being filled with sand and slit.
