Great Wall of China Trek

The China Great Wall Trek is a fantastic 5 day hike along this man made structure that has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

This challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, and through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. Participants also have the exclusive opportunity to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed – everyone will place a brick in this newly restored section, ensuring their own place in the Great Wall of China!

 

This is a challenging trek to undertake due to the amount of steps trekked up and down each day – a highlight is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’.

 

There will also be some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites, such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. An ancient wonder, an amazing accomplishment… join Team Red Cross on this challenge of a lifetime and ensure your place in history as we trek and help repair the Great Wall of China!
