About the event

This challenge takes you over watch-towers and mountains, and through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. You will have an exclusive opportunity to place a brick in a section of the wall that is currently being reconstructed, ensuring your own place in the Great Wall of China! The uneven surface and amount of steps make this a challenging trek. There are 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu. This highlight culminates in the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’. You will also have 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.
