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 will feel the Great Wall is for you only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

Exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, you will be able to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. You will each place your brick in this newly restored section, ensuring your own place in the Great Wall of China!  Memories to cherish for a lifetime.

The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to a number of steps we trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km! Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’. Uniting as one and with exceptional support from when you sign up through to the challenge itself, this trek will not disappoint.

You will have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating our achievement at dinner.
