Great Wall of China trek

Join us on a majestic nine-day trekking adventure and conquer the twists, turns, steps and slopes of this formidable fortification – the famous Great Wall.

As we trek along this iconic wonder of the world, we’ll cross ancient watchtowers and battlement stations to witness magnificent panoramas of luscious, rolling green hills as far as the eye can see! We’ll climb the incredible Heavenly Ladder and help rebuild part of the Wall – a privilege exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, and we’ll immerse ourselves in stunning scenery and Chinese culture. We’ll also have the opportunity to explore Beijing, where we can visit iconic landmarks such as the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the famous Tiananmen Square!
