Following the incredible success of our treks to Machu Picchu (2012, 2017) and Mount Kilimanjaro (2015), we are delighted to invite you to join team MND Scotland on our first ever fundraising challenge to the Great Wall of China in September 2019.

This challenging 5-day trek gives you the chance to explore this ancient wonder of the world, while raising awareness and funds for MND Scotland.

You’ll meet passionate fundraisers from across Scotland, making memories for a lifetime, as you test your endurance, tackle thousands of steps and support each other every step of the way.

In a day’s hike, you will ensure your own little piece of history by carrying a brick from the bottom of the wall upwards, to help repair centuries-old watchtowers.

On the trek you’ll be in the hands of a team of professionals, including a trained doctor, a local English-speaking guide, an experienced UK trek leader from Global Adventure Challenges, and a member of staff from MND Scotland, who will be in regular contact with MND Scotland HQ in Glasgow.

All flights, transfers, meals and accommodation will be included, as well as bottled water on trekking days. This will give you peace of mind to focus on enjoying this unforgettable adventure.

Trip extensions may be also become available for those who wish to stay-on in China and return to Scotland at a later date.
