Great Wall of China Trek
29th March - 7th April 2019

 

Stretching 6000km 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. 

This physically demanding challenge offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.

This trek is very varied, passing through woodland and terraced farmland, and following the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. You'll follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps!
