Vicky Sonley's goal
Trek the Great Wall of China
It is often said the Great Wall is the only man-made creation visible from the moon. If anything, you are more likely to see the modern wonders of Dubai’s Palm Islands. Nonetheless, this architectural marvel still astounds, stretching over 6,000km from east to west (though not continuously).
Climb the ramparts and scale the watchtowers along the steeply undulating route of the best-preserved sections. To trek the entire length could take six months – but even short treks on this fascinating edifice count as a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
