The Great Wall is a thrilling challenge of twists, turns, ups and downs. Beginning 4 hours north of Beijing, our challenge takes us on a series of upwards climbs over 10,000 steps over the course of a week. As the days progress we follow the winding path along the mountains that spread either side of the Gubeikou Gateway. Exhaustion will quickly vanish as we are rewarded with sweeping views over the vast mountain ranges. Finish the trek by enjoying the cultural highlights of China's bustling capital city, Beijing.


The trip departs on 19th October 2019 and returns on 27th October 2019.
