The Great Wall of China Trek
- This event has passed.
The Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic 5 day hike (with 4-9 hours of walking each day) along this awesome man made structure. One of the best in charity treks, this challenge takes us over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this charity challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.
A unique feature of our trek is that you have the opportunity to lay a brick on one section of the magnificent Great Wall, helping to restore this historic landmark for future generations.
The trekking on this challenge is hard, due to the amount of steps we trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km on this glorious structure! Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’.
