About the Challenge
A message about beautiful China...
We are currently not accepting bookings on our Great Wall of China challenges. There are still rigorous Covid testing requirements and strict quarantine/isolation rules in place to gain entry into the country. Unfortunately, it isn't feasible for us, or our participants, to meet these requirements at the moment. We do not have any indication on when this is likely to change.
Although we are grateful for the regular enquiries about our adventure in China, we cannot give you a straightforward answer at this moment in time. We know just how appealing this trip is and that lots of people have it firmly on their Wanderlust lists, we really love it too. It goes without saying that we're missing our Chinese colleagues hugely, and hope to catch-up with them soon.
If and when the entry requirements change for China, of course, we will ensure you're amongst the first to know. However, we will need to review the trip and ensure it still fits with our responsible tourism policies; this includes morals and ethics.
One of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Great Wall of China has to be the ultimate building project the world has ever known; constructed by human hands over 2000 years ago, it stretches across this hilly region with long spurs and watch-towers often disappearing into the mists.
Our trek is very varied, as we pass through woodland and terraced farmland, and follow the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps!

Nigel was an excellent leader and from the feedback and conversations of others on the trip he made us all feel safe, comfortable and well looked after.
