Great Western Air Ambulance Charity is looking for hardy souls who can walk in the footsteps of the Ming Dynasty and help keep them flying.
The Great Wall of China is regarded as one of the Seven Medieval Wonders of the World, spanning almost 4000 miles from the Gobi Desert to the Yellow Sea. You’ll be hiking on steep, remote terrain in high temperatures for 8 days and staying in a mixture of simple guesthouses and a “home stay” in a rural farming village. The trek is very varied, you will pass through woodland terraced farmland and remote mountain villages such as Huangyaguan, a small town situated in a beautiful valley in the heart of the Yanshan Mountains. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections such as the famous ‘Heaven’s Ladder’, a steep climb of over 200 steps scaling a sheer cliff face!
As well as seeing one of the most spectacular sights in the world, you’ll have the opportunity to visit Beijing and tour Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the other sights of this extraordinary city.
