A big Thank You for taking the time to visit.

This will be the first time I have done anything like this and what makes it all the more worthwhile is being able to help raise money for a very worthwhile charity. Please visit their site to find out about all the wonderful things they do -

Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip, which may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions etc.

Day 1 - London - Beijing.

Day 2 - Arrive in Beijing. Arrive early morning and transfer to Huangyaguan where we begin the trek after lunch - Approx 3-4 hours trekking.

Day 3 - Huangyaguan - Qiankaijian Village. This section features the start of "Heavens Ladder", a steep, narrow climb of over 300 steps which rewards you with stunning views over the Yanshan Mountains when you reach the top. The path then winds around sections of the wall and down the valley into a mountain village where we will stay the night. Approx 5-7 hours trekking.

Day 4 - Qiankaijian Village - Jinshanling. After breakfast head out of the village up a steep trail alongside farmer's fields up to the wall where Heibei Province, Tianjin City and Beijing meet together, where we make our way west and descend back down to the village. After lunch we trek further through the village to meet the coach for the transfer to Jinshanling. Approx 4-5 hours trekking.

Day 5 - Guebikou - Jinshanling. In the morning we transfer to the start of the Guebikou section of the wall where, if the weather is good, we can see Miyun reservoir and the Wangjing Tower rising in the distance. This section towards Jinshanling is one of the best preserved areas of the Great Wall and today we will trek through 67 restored watch tower. Approx 5-7 hours trekking.

Day 6 - Jinshanling - Mutianyu. After breakfast we trek East heading towards Simatal along a much restored section of the wall where the wall runs up and down the spine of the mountains before taking shelter in one of the many watchtowers along the way. Approx 3-5 hours trekking.

Day 7 - Mutianyu - Beijing. This is our final morning on the Great Wall. After leaving the hotel and passing through a small village we start climbing a steep, wooden track to the top of the wall.The section we join is known to be one of the most beautiful parts of the wall wall in Beijing. After our final hike we come back down to the road to meet our bus and drive back to Beijing. After a chance to freshen up, we'll re-group and head out to our celebration meal held in downtown Beijing. Approx 3-4 hours trekking.

Day 8 - Beijing. Today we take time to explore the capital where we'll visit Tiananmen Square and the nearby Forbidden City as well as the many other sites on offer.

Day 9 - Beijing - London.

Any donation big or small is greatly received and will make a difference to the lives of all supported by the charity.

Donating through this site is simple.

My charity will receive your money quickly and easily and if you are a UK taxpayer an extra 25% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
