Event Details

The Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic charity challenge, hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure. The challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this challenge where you’ll feel the Great Wall is for you only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

You’ll ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed and will place a brick in a newly restored section, ensuring your own place in the Great Wall of China!  Memories to cherish for a lifetime.

The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to a number of steps you trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km! 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’.

With exceptional support from when you sign up through to the challenge itself, this trek will not disappoint.
