You will also have an opportunity to combat thousands of steps through terraced farmland, beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas of north Beijing.

Over the 10-days you will also venture along the contours of the world’s longest defensive fortification which was built in the 5th Century BC by the Qin Shi Huang and the Ming Dynasty and stretches up to 6,000km across China while savouring the timeless landscapes and time-weathered watchtowers. This incredible experience is taking place between 13-22 September 2018. All you need to do to take part is to sign up and raise £3,150.

As the famous Chairman Mao in his poem once said, ‘Until you reach the Great Wall, you’re no hero’.
