About my fundraising

The Great Wall of China was originally constructed to keep out nomadic tribes who raided China's Northern frontier

Our 9 day trekking challenge starts in Jinshanling with a vigorous upward climb requiring us to mount thousands of steps that loop along the mountains either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.

Each day we will trek approximately 12kms along the stony path, twisting and winding its way along the mountains, interspersed with crumbling watchtowers.

It is demanding but also very rewarding, particularly on a clear day when you can look at the vast and beautiful mountain ranges. Imagination will take us back several centuries to when the wall was the frontline defence of Imperial China.

On completion of our challenge as a reward we will return to Beijing to explore some of the many attractions of China's capital city including the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

We would love to raise some money for Cancer Research UK and Dumfries Baptist Church. ...more more
