Great Wall of China Trek
May 13, 2017 - May 27, 2017
The Great Wall of China was originally constructed to keep out nomadic tribes who raided China’s Northern frontier.
Your trekking challenge starts in Jinshanling with a vigorous and challenging trek which involves climbing thousands of steps that loop along the mountains either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.
Each day involves a trek of approximately 12 kilometres (7 and a half miles) along the stony paths that twist and wind through the mountains, interspersed with crumbling watch towers.
This is a demanding but highly rewarding challenge, not only will you be changing the lives of animals that we care for – you’ll also be creating memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
