Great Wall of China Trek

Duration 9 days: 18th October – 26th October 2019

Take on the 5-day Great Wall of China Trek covering 45k and raise money to help Starlight brighten the lives of seriously ill children across the UK.

This adventure takes you from the ‘Wild Wall’ at Guibeko, with its crumbling paths and ruined watchtowers, to the restored ‘post-card’ views of Mutianyu and Badaling.

Away from the great wall, you will spend a day trekking in the Black Dragon Pool Park, a spectacular nature reserve set in a deep valley with waterfalls, towering cliffs, crystal clear pools and traditional Chinese buildings.
