People waving on Great Wall of China

Where: China
When: Saturday 23 April 2016 - Sunday 1 May 2016
Duration: 9 days

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

Trek along the steep 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.

This trek is exclusive to The Children’s Society and is a great opportunity for you to meet new people, make new friends and speak to others who are equally passionate about helping this country’s most disadvantaged children and teenagers.
