  • FEATURES

    Beijing: Serving as China's capital since the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368AD), Beijing's past present and future are forced together in the crowded neighbourhoods and streets of the city. But despite a divide between new and old, one thing about Beijing has remained constant for centuries: hard-handed political power, as well as thriving intellectual and artistic thought prominent in Beijing, continues to influence China and the world.

    Trip Highlights

    The Forbidden City
    Home to emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasty for over 500 years, the over 800 buildings and 9,000 chambers of the Forbidden City were filled with only the elite officials and associates of the imperial family.

    Tiananmen
    With the iconic portrait of Mao Zedong looming over the Tiananmen gates, this public square is one of the largest in the world, and has been the site of numerous historical events in China.

    The Great Wall of China
    Starting at the sea and stretching more than one thousand miles to the desert frontiers of China's west, the Great Wall is a lasting symbol of China's imperial might. Built over the course of two millennia, it is actually a series of defensive walls erected to protect China's heartland from invaders.

    The Temple of Heaven
    It is a vast complex of Chinese architectural masterpieces where Chinese emperors conducted arguably the most important rituals an emperor ever had to do: offer sacrifices to Heaven and pray for good harvests.

In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.
