Support Us : China – Great Wall Trek

The Chinese insist that ‘You have not lived if you have not been to the great wall’ and it’s not difficult to imagine why! Stretching a distance of 6, 000km, it passes across mountains and valleys, proving to be one of the most indestructible natural wonders of the world.

Travel off the tourist trail to discover China’s colourful history by viewing the ever changing landscape through the numerous battlement stations and watchtowers. Challenge yourself to climbing the ‘Heavenly Ladder’ at Mutianyu, before indulging in some of the greatest sights Beijing has to offer.
