Celebrate our 20th birthday trekking The Great Wall of China!

Join North West Air Ambulance Charity for the challenge of a lifetime as we take on the Great Wall of China Trek to celebrate our 20th birthday and help to keep our helicopters flying and saving lives.

The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys – you’ll be pleased to know we don’t trek the whole distance!

Hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure the challenge takes us over watch towers and mountains and through historic battlement stations. The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to a number of steps we trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km! Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’.

If that’s not enough to tempt you you’ll have an exclusive opportunity to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. We will each place our brick in this newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China!  Memories to cherish for a lifetime.
