CHALLENGE DETAILS

Your trekking adventure begins in Jinshanling with a vigorous ascent upwards, mounting thousands of steps which loop through the mountains on both sides of the Gubeikou Gateway.

This trek is physically demanding but also hugely rewarding, when you see the beautiful, vast mountain ranges surrounding you. Your imagination takes you back through several centuries to when the Great Wall was Imperial China's frontline of defence.

On completing the challenge, you will head back to Beijing to discover some of its many attractions, including Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.

The following items are included in the cost of the expedition:

  • Return international flights from London to Beijing
  • Airport departure tax
  • Overland transfers
  • All accommodation
  • All meals during the itinerary
  • Drinking water on trekking days, support team (drivers and guides)
  • Necessary back-up facilities
  • Provision of first aid supplies
