About Great Wall of China Trek

The Great Wall of China stretches 6000km east to west, it zig zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys, over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail! With parts of it dating back to the 7th century BC it has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and is always one of the top 10 bucket list destinations!

The China Great Wall Trek for charity is a fantastic 9 day trip, 5 days will be spent hiking along this awesome man made structure and exclusive to us we are able 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!

You will 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. As with all St Gemma’s Challenges you will be fully supported along the way and everything will be taken care of so all you need to do is soak up the sights and enjoy the views.
