Great Wall of China Trek 2016
- 20 May 2016 to 20 May 2016
We have teamed up with international challenge providers Discover Adventure to offer you this once in a lifetime opportunity to trek the full length of the Great Wall of China with fellow cat lovers, while also raising vital funds for Cats Protection.
Stretching 6,000km in a dotted line across China, the Great Wall was begun in the 5th Century BC. As it snakes across the mountains it conjures up a sense of history which is difficult to grasp until you have had the opportunity to experience it.
Our trek is very varied, as we pass through woodland and terraced farmland following the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps! This challenge is physically demanding but offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.
