The Great Wall of China Trek - Heart Research UK

The Great Wall of China Trek

You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall, or so the Chinese saying goes, and it’s not surprising why!


The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys. Our Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic challenge hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure. One of the best in the market, our challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this challenge where you’ll feel the Great Wall is for you only, with no-one else but your group in sight.


Exclusive to with the travel provider we use, you’ll ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. You will place your brick in this newly restored section, ensuring your own place in the Great Wall of China!

Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’.

Glowing from your amazing success, you’ll have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, before celebrating your achievement at dinner.
