Date/Time October 28, 2017 - November 5, 2017 All Day
The China Great Wall Trek for Over & Above is a fantastic 5 day hike along this awesome man made structure. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys – rest assured, the Great Wall provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking. The challenge takes us over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this charity challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight.
Exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, this most amazing of fundraising events also enables us to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. We will each place our brick in this newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China!
The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to the amount of steps each day- a 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’ – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek one kilometre on this glorious structure!
We’ll also have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites, such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating our achievement at dinner.
An ancient wonder, an amazing accomplishment… join us on this Over & Above challenge of a lifetime and ensure your place in history as we trek and help repair the Great Wall of China.
