Great Wall of China Trek
6 – 14 November 2021
Ready for a once-in-a-lifetime challenge you’ll remember forever?
Trek the Great Wall of China for St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth and you’ll not only experience an iconic bucket list destination, you’ll help us support families so they can make precious memories together when time is running short.
Hailed as one of the Seven ‘New’ Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China stretches over 5,500 miles, making it the world’s longest man-made structure. Its fascinating history spans more than 2,000 years.
As you trek our route from Gubeikou to Simatai, you’ll take in some of the most breath-taking views of the Wall and the surrounding rolling hills, and – with so few other people around – you’ll feel as if you are stepping back in time.
Our trek will take you through remote villages and towns, meeting local people along the way, before finishing your adventure with a visit to the famous Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City.
This is an opportunity for a mesmerising, unforgettable adventure, hiking along one of the most famous structures in the world and experiencing China’s vast variations of landscape, culture, wildlife and architectural heritage – not to mention cuisine!
