This year we are delighted to offer a range of challenges which are sure to excite and thrill those who take part leaving them with a fantastic sense of achievement! Our challenge partners, Global Adventure Challenges are dedicated to creating life-changing challenge events for groups and individuals, who wish to raise funds for their chosen charity.
We are delighted to offer our supporters this fantastic, life-changing opportunity to visit and trek along the Great Wall of China, here’s what Global Adventure Challenges says about it:
The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.
Our 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, our 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 challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us 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, we ‘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! 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.
Glowing from our amazing success, we’ll have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating our achievement at dinner.
