The Great Wall Challenge 2013
Saturday June 22, 2013 to Tuesday July 02, 2013
Stretching over 5,500 miles the Great Wall of China is a remarkable feat of construction and architecture with a history spanning more than 2000 years.
The wall, the longest human-made structure on the planet, is located in the North of China and crosses vast deserts, barren plains and snow-capped mountains. It was built as a fortification against invasions from the north, and was of great strategic importance.
Our trek takes the Gubeikou to Simatai route, which features some of the most stunning views of the wall and the surrounding rolling hills. There are so few other people around you feel as if you are stepping back in time. You will trek through remote villages and towns and meet local people along the way.
This is a challenging trek, giving you the opportunity to hike on and next to one of the most iconic structures in the world. Finish your adventure with a visit to the world famous Tiananmen Square, Birds Nest Olympic Stadium and Forbidden City.
As an added bonus, we have built in a two day trip to Xi'an to see the amazing Terracotta Warriors, Great Mosque, Wild Goose Pagoda, History Museum and City Wall. No other charity offers this as a complete package.
