Great Wall of China
1st - 9th September 2019
The Great Wall of China is an ancient architectural marvel that stretches for thousands of miles
Join Travel & Trek for another fantastic charity trek fundraising for Beaumond House. Our itinerary snatches the best of the Wall, ranging from original sections to restored watchtowers, from wide open vistas to narrow overgrown paths, it all forges its way over mountains and through valleys.
Final night camping in an abandoned Watch Tower – a unique experience
Escape the crowds – we use more remote sections
Welcoming Homestay accommodation, close to the Wall every night
2 nights in Beijing- experience this fascinating culture
To get the best out of the Wall, you have to live it, be close to it and even in our case, live on it! On our final trek night, when everyone else has gone, we trek back up to the Watchtower and camp overnight there to experience the silence and see the sun rise (camping equipment supplied).
On arrival, we transfer you straight to the Wall, staying overnight in a local guesthouse before trekking the next morning. The Wall can be demanding at times; very demanding. Subsequent overnight stays are in local guesthouses close to either the beginning or end of the day’s trek.
Once back in Beijing, there is some free time prior to a complimentary celebration roast duck dinner that evening. The following day there is a tour of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square (included)
