Great Wall of China

Great Wall Discovery

  • Witness Imperial China's frontline defence
  • Trek on the Great Wall of China
  • Explore Beijing and its Forbidden City

Your challenge will start in Jinshanling with a vigorous trek along the mountains either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.

Each day you will trek approximately 12kms along the path, winding its way along the mountains, interspersed with awe inspiring watchtowers.

It is demanding but also very rewarding, especially with the stunning views of the beautiful mountain ranges. Your imagination will take you back several centuries to when the wall was the frontline defence of Imperial China.

On completion of your challenge you will return to Beijing to explore some of the many attractions of China's capital city including the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

Machu Pichu

Trek to Machu Picchu

  • Explore the Inca capital of Cusco
  • Alternative, uncrowded route in the Lares Valley
  • Reach the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate

Your first taste of the Inca world will be in and around the city of Cusco, the ancient Inca capital. There will be time to acclimatise to the high altitude by visiting local Inca ruins and Spanish Colonial churches.

You'll be following a route far off the beaten track, and you will see diverse and spectacular scenery as you glimpse a way of Peruvian life that has remained untouched for centuries. Situated at an altitude of 2,667m, the springs offer spectacular views of snowy peaks and glaciers.

You will have some time to explore the ruins at Machu Picchu, the 'lost City of the Incas'. These breathtaking pre Columbian ruins are nestled high in the Andes between two peaks and are one of the most beautiful ancient sites in the world.
