Great Wall of China Trek 2019

Event Overview

“You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall”, or so the Chinese saying goes, and it’s not surprising why!

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. One of the best in the market, the challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this challenge where you’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.
