Challenge yourself to trek the Great Wall of China with Aruma and do something life-changing for Australians living with a disability.
On this 9-day adventure, you’ll discover the ancient heart of China as you trek the Great Wall and explore this beautiful part of Asia.
Thousands of kilometres long and spanning dynasties of history, the Great Wall of China is one of the world’s greatest architectural triumphs. You’ll spend 5 challenging days trekking some of the most impressive segments of the wall, parts that loom over small villages and others that have remained untouched for centuries.
You’ll start your journey in Beijing with the opportunity to meet your fellow teammates and explore some of this bustling city. Visit the Forbidden City, a great complex that once served as the Chinese Imperial Palace, and learn about the solemn history of Tiananmen Square.
Going from the modern skyline of Beijing to the fields and farmlands near the Taipingzhai Gate, you’ll begin your trek along the Great Wall. You’ll wander over mountain ridges and valleys, see the river canals of the ancient water town of Gubei and the watchtowers of the Mutianyu Great Wall.
With the support of your fellow teammates and expert guide, you’ll challenge yourself in a new way while making a positive difference in the lives of people with a disability.
By taking part in this adventure, you’ll be raising funds for Aruma to continue their work supporting Australians with a disability. Every dollar raised will go towards specialist services and support, creating more opportunities for people living with a disability to live a great life.
