Event Description

NEW FOR 2019! Join us on this 9 day adventure as we hike for 5 days along one of the most spectacular wonders of the world - the Great Wall of China. We’ll head off the beaten track and discover sections of the wall dating back to the Ming Dynasty. As we follow the winding path, you’ll marvel at the magnificent panoramic views, stretching to the misty mountain ranges and learn all about the fascinating culture and deep history of China.

This trek is exclusive to Julia’s House fundraisers and offers a great opportunity to come together with other supporters of Julia’s House to explore this fascinating Wonder of the World, whilst raising much needed funds for our families.  

This trek will certainly challenge you, with lots of twists, turns, ups and downs, but you will be rewarded with the most spectacular views of the Great Wall and surrounding scenery – from stunning mountain ranges and luscious rolling farmland to the ancient watch towers and battlement stations that once defended China against the nomadic tribes. As we head off the beaten track, there will be many sections during this challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight.

  • Flights from the UK (including all current airport taxes and fuel supplements)
  • Accommodation in 3* hotels (3 nights) and guesthouses on the trek (4 nights)
