About: China leaves a lasting impression on all who go there, with its history, mythology and ancient traditions.

Trek along the staircases and crumbling watchtowers of The Great Wall of China on this demanding, but rewarding trek. This nine day trip, with five days of walking, offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.

The challenge finishes at the top of Heavenly Stairway, which on a clear day has views of the mountains all around. The event concludes in Beijing, and as a reward for all your hard work, you’ll experience the sights and sounds of China’s capital city with a guided tour of Beijing and its Forbidden City and then enjoy a celebratory team banquet.
