The Great Wall 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, as well as being one of the only man made monuments that can be seen from space. Stretching for 6,000km, the Great Wall zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.
The China Great Wall Trek is a fantastic 5 day hike along this awesome man made structure. The challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail.
