Why should I do it? This trek is breathtaking. As we trek along this iconic Wonder of the World, we’ll cross ancient watch towers and battlement stations to witness magnificent panoramas of luscious, rolling green hills as far as the eye can see! We’ll climb the iconic Heavenly Ladder and help rebuild part of the wall, a unique privilege exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges.
By trekking along the Great Wall for Penny Brohn UK, not only will you be taking on a huge personal challenge that many people only dream of achieving, but with every step you take you will be helping us support more people with cancer.
What do I need to know?
We are delighted to once again be working alongside Global Adventure Challenges who have over ten years experience in organising such trips, they have helped thousands of people reach their goals and life-long ambitions. Every Expedition Leader is highly experienced and well trained to provide everyone with the most enjoyable trip possible.
How much do I need to pay or fundraise?
You will be required to pay a non refundable registration fee of £299 at the time of booking and then an airport Tax and fuel surcharge contribution of £250 nearer the time. After this there are two payment options:
Minimum Sponsorship (Option A) – with this option you fundraise a minimum amount of £2,750 sponsorship for Penny Brohn UK out of which we pay your challenge costs (£1,375).
Self Funded (Option B) – you personally cover the full costs of the challenge out of your own pocket which is £1,375 and then fundraise as much as you can; all of which comes to the charity.
On the trek you will be provided with a Global Adventure Challenges Leader, professional local English speaking guides, accommodation, drinking water, all meals, a UK doctor to travel with the group, your return flights and all accommodation. Airport surcharges are on top. Check out the itinerary for more details of what is and is not included.

“Trekking the Great Wall was out of this world; the views were just surreal. The support me and my friends received from the fundraising team was brilliant and knowing that we were raising money to support people who will benefit from the amazing facilities at Penny Brohn really spurred us on.
