Great Wall of China
Hike along the stunning Great Wall
The Great Wall of China is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is a staggering 5,500 miles long, and one of the few man-made structures visible from low orbit. Stretching from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, the Great Wall of China is arguably the most expansive man-made structure ever built. This means that, although hiking in China may be challenging, the rewards are spectacular, and the memory of a trip to the Great Wall will stay with you forever.
Our Great Wall of China trek is unlike any other. Participants will start their challenge at Old Dragon’s Head where the wall meets the sea. The first couple of days of their trek will find them walking along rarely visited sections of the wall where, in some areas, the wall has been completely taken over by nature. As the trek progresses the team will see the wall in various stages of renovation and degradation before finally completing their challenge on the more familiar restored sections of the wall.
A trip to this part of the world would not be complete without getting the opportunity to experience rural China. Every challenge has a number of local village stays so participants can have an authentic cultural immersion experience.
We can guarantee a ‘Really Wild’ Great Wall of China challenge will be like none other!
