You will never forget the first time you see the Great Wall of China. From the moment you take your first steps you will be mesmerized! Trekking for 5 days, this challenge has it all. Immerse yourself in its history, embrace a new and fascinating culture whilst exploring some of the most beautiful scenery in China.

 

You will need to be of good fitness to enjoy this trek. Be prepared for climbing up and down the steps on the Great Wall and long days hiking through rural farmlands and valleys.

 

The trek ends in the fascinating city of Beijing, where you can spend a free day exploring the tourist sites and taking in the vibe of the capital of China.

Here is what Penny Burton, (Great Wall of China Trekker- May 2015), had to say:

 

Walking parts of the Great Wall of China had always been on my ‘to do’ list. Raising money for ‘Beating Bowel Cancer’ not only enabled it to happen, but it was a fantastic bonus to be able to give something back, as they provided excellent support to myself during my own treatment.

A once in a lifetime experience, and I would definitely recommend the trip (but get fit first!)
