Experience the Great Wall of China with City Hospice in 2020!

Get off the beaten track and spend five days trekking the remote and beautiful section of one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Did you know?

  • The Great Wall was built around 221 B.C to stop invasions from the north
  • The Wall is 21,196 kilometres (13,170 miles) long
  • The Wall became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 1987 and is the longest man made structure in the world
  • You’ll be walking around 50km (31 miles) over the course of your adventure

Join us and The Different Travel Company for this exciting charity trek which will take you from Gubeikou to Jinshanling and Simatai. Not only will you trek on the wall itself, you will also have the opportunity to trek through wild and remote landscapes with distant views of green rolling hills, mountain peaks, with one of the great wonders of the world as the backdrop. You will be staying in guesthouses throughout the trek so you can learn more about authentic Chinese culture. You’ll discover more about the lifestyle of the local people, their history and also get to taste some incredible local cuisine.

This challenging, yet fascinating trek, will take you on various ups and downs, twists and turns, and give you a real taste of China.

Challenge level: Moderate – challenging

Trek dates: We will be leaving the UK on Friday 19th October 2020 and arriving back on Saturday 24th October 2020.
