Trekking the Great Wall of China was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever undertaken. As it snakes across the mountains it conjures up a sense of emotion which is difficult to grasp until you have had the opportunity to experience it. I didn't know anyone at the beginning of my trek but came away with 47 new friends. Kelly, Great Wall of China Trekker
