The challenge

  • Conquer the imperial masterpiece of the Ming dynasty
  • Test yourself against thousands of challenging steps
  • Triumph over the crumbling, twisting pathways of the Yan Mountains
  • Savour the timeless landscapes and time- weathered watchtowers
  • Enjoy the cultural highlights of China's bustling capital city

Originally constructed to defend China against the nomadic tribes, the Great Wall of China is a truly iconic location – perfect for a Charity Challenge.   
The Great Wall Discovery is a thrilling challenge of twists, turns, ups and downs. Beginning four hours north of Beijing, this week-long challenge tackles a series of vigorous upwards climbs and over 10,000 relentless steps, following the winding path along the Yan Mountains, either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.  Exhaustion will quickly vanish as you savour the sweeping views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

The challenge ends in the vast metropolis of Beijing, exploring the cultural highlights of China’s historic capital.

Our expert English speaking guides will be with you every step of the way, managing your challenge while providing historical context to the Great Wall and surrounds.
