An on line travel agency called Backyard Travel has launched a new tour of the Great Wall called 'Discover China's Great Wall By Campervan'. Travelers are taken to the Great Wall of China by a spacious camper van that sleeps five.

Along the way, they stop at the Three-North Shelter Forest Program in Guandi, where they learn all about a green initiative to halt the desertification of northern China.
