The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.

The Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic charity challenge hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure. The challenge will take you over watchtowers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

Exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, you will ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. Everyone taking part in the challenge will each place a brick in the newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China!  Memories to cherish for a lifetime.

This trek is a real challenge due to the number of steps you will need to trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km! You will also conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’. This trek will not disappoint.

Glowing from your amazing success, you will then have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating our achievement at dinner.
