China Trek 2019

Experience one of the Seven Wonders of the World and camp overnight, with our special China Trek 2019

Please note, this event is organised by a third party to support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

The Great Wall of China is not only a world icon, but an amazing structure which stretches mile after mile… and we’re giving you a unique experience to trek along it, in our special 25th anniversary challenge.

During the nine day experience, you’ll get to trek along original sections of the wall, restored watchtowers, across open vistas and down narrow overgrown paths as you make your way through valleys and over mountains.
Our special trek also offers you the unique opportunity to camp on the wall itself!

On the final night, when everyone has gone you’ll make your way back to the watchtower and camp overnight (with all camping equipment provided); giving you the chance to witness the silence of the Great Wall of China before seeing an incredible sunrise.

If that wasn’t enough, along with getting to experience one of the Seven Wonders of the World, you’ll also get a tour of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.
