Best Trek

I have been in Beijing with my wife for a couple of days and those days and we have seen plenty historic sites in the city but never got out further. The last day of our trip to Beijing, we decided to go for a trek on the wall to complete our trip to China. We joined a tour to visit the Great Wall at Badaling section with a half day.

Badaling Great Wall

Our tour guide Amy picked us up in the morning and made an early start on our trip to the wall. It did not take long to get there but the mist still did not disappear by the time we stopped at the foothill. We soon got the tickets and grabbed a chair lift up the hill to get on top of the wall. The minute we landed on the wall, we started to hike along with Amy. The sun slowly came out and the mountain air was really crispy up there. The views completely blew us away with its beauty. Our trek on the wall went on and on, after over an hour of walk, both of us got sweaty and really tired and had to stop to catch some breath. So we sat by a watch tower with Amy and talked about stuff for a while. Along the way, she kept filling us in about the stories and history about the wall. It was really fascinating to know there was so much more hidden behind the wall. The history about the wall made our walk on the wall more fun and enjoyable and both of us enjoyed it!

After we rested for quite a long time, we stood up and started trekking again. There were some parts on the wall which were very steep, making our trek on the wall kind of like climb. But we were regarded by those breathtaking sights. The snaking wall seemed to go on and on until it disappeared into the horizon. We were both glad we got the opportunity to see the wall up close and personal. Totally worth every minute of it! Almost lost track of the time, soon it was time to get down the wall. We also took a fun slide to get down the hill. Overall, the experience of visiting the wall was really great and loved it!
