The traditional torch relay of the Beijing Winter Olympics will involve 1,200 torchbearers and will take place in famous tourist destinations, such as the Great Wall of China, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. 


From February 2 to 4, when the Olympics open, the torch relay will take place across the Games’ three sites and also travel to tourist attractions in Beijing, but due to covid it will be cordoned off from the general public. 


The relay route, shorter than in previous years, will include a stop at the Great Wall as well as central Beijing’s Olympic parks, the Summer Palace and other venues, including International Grape Exhibition Garden and Zhangjiakou Industrial Culture Park.
