Great Wall Discovery Trek

Event type
Overseas Challenges

Do something amazing and join the team that's curing blood cancer and blood disorders.

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 climbs totalling over 10,000 uneven steps.

The trek will follow the winding path along the Yan Mountains to the Gubeikou Gateway and takes on the famous ‘heavenly staircase’. The challenge ends in the vast metropolis of Beijing, with time to explore the cultural highlights of China’s historic capital.

'Doing something as thrilling and life changing as walking the Great Wall of China is only enhanced by doing it for such a great cause like Anthony Nolan, I couldn't recommend doing it enough!'

- Saffron, one of our 2023 TeamAN trekkers
