Stars Appeal Great Wall of China Trek

From Saturday 27th April – Monday 6th May 2019, join our team of Stars Appeal supporters on the adventure of a lifetime as we raise funds to help local people in Salisbury District Hospital.

Great Wall of China 1

Stretching 6000km in a dotted line across China, the Great Wall was begun in the 5th Century BC. As it snakes across the mountains it conjures up a sense of history which is difficult to grasp until you have had the opportunity to experience it.

Our trek is very varied, as we pass through woodland and terraced farmland, and follow the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps!

This challenge is physically demanding and offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.


To take part in this challenge of a lifetime, we ask each trekker to raise at least £1,410 for the Stars Appeal as well as paying their registration fee of £399 (non-refundable). 

You can do this by funding the trip yourself and raising £1,410, or fundraising for all your trip costs as well as your donation, in which case we ask you to raise at least £2,820.

"The whole experience was out of this world! It's so difficult to put into words how it made me feel other to say it was extremely emotional but well worth the experience."   Mandy, Stars Appeal Grand Canyon trekker (2015)

 "I was nervous about meeting so many new people, and especially nervous about going away on my own. I was taken right out of my comfort zone, but was made to feel very much part of the trek community - this exceeded my expectations!"  Theresa, Stars Appeal Inca Trail trekker (2017)

"It was a good feeling to all be working together to raise money for a good cause." Anonymous Stars Appeal Inca Trail trekker (2017)
