My Great Wall Hiking in Winter - (2)

Got up in early morning, I found the air and environment are all very good in suburbs of Beijing. I cannot stop to breathe the fresh even sweat air, just like a people need oxygen badly. How long time I have no chance to get up in such quiet morning.

Broad View at Jinshanling Great Wall

After breakfast in hotel, I continued to enjoy the Great Wall at Jinshanling and Simatai. It is said that the Jinshanling Great Wall is connected with Simatai Great Wall, so the guide told me we would start from Jinshanling and end at Simatai. It was an arduous work. In fact, I have used to long distance hiking, but to my surprise, the guide have full energy to climb it with me and explained me the history and culture of this section of the Great Wall. Without cable car or other facilities, I just experienced it by foot and hands. Not as well as the Great Wall at Mutianyu, the Jinshanling part is incomplete in some parts during the hundreds of years, but it is the real appearance of the Great Wall. Standing on it, I seemed to feel the wars it had experienced, shining spears and armoured horses, which can describe its real scene. Using its strong and powerful body, the Great Wall withstood the attack again and protected the safety of Beijing and people in Beijing city.

From Jinshanling to Simatai, almost 12 kilometers, we hiked it for about 5 hours. Even tired enough, I like this Great Wall tour very much and recorded in my mind. Totally 30 towers, I really recognized the strength of Chinese people. We just hike it, but the people built it hand by hand. It is hard to image what they experienced in that time. Maybe the word of tire is not enough to describe the situation of them. It is a shock tour I thought.
