About this event

Trek along one of the Seven Wonders of the World and help more children with cancer ring their end of treatment bell.

Join the team on a majestic 9 day trekking adventure and conquer the twists, turns, steps and slopes of this formidable fortification – the famous Great Wall. Cross ancient watch towers and battlement stations to witness magnificent panoramas of luscious, rolling green hills, climb the iconic Heavenly Ladder and even help rebuild part of the wall, a unique privilege exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges.

This challenge is physically demanding but offers fabulous, never ending scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.
