Great Wall Trekking in Beijing

Last weekend I enjoyed a fun-filled and blood-pumping great wall trekking in Beijing with my tour guide Liu. It was fun and amazing! I really loved every minute of it! I have never done something like that before!

Badaling Great Wall

We set out on our day trip early in the morning after I had a breakfast in my hotel. We first headed for the Badaling section on a car. It was a smooth ride over there! This section is close to downtown Beijing, so it only took us about an hour to reach there! After Liu helped me to get the entrance to the wall, we paid some fees for the cable car to carry us up the wall. Badaling was kind of crowded with tourists, which I did not enjoy it, but for some sightseeing, it was okay! After getting down the wall, we had a lunch in a restaurant. Then we moved on to Juyongguan section. It was less crowded so I could explore the wall finally at my own pace, taking in the views, snapping photos here and there! The trekking on the wall at Juyongguan was fun and amazing! I really enjoyed relaxing myself in there! There were plenty of interesting structures on the wall, most impressive would be the watch towers all over the wall – definitely an incredible sight!

Juyongguan Great Wall

After getting off the wall at Juyongguan, Liu took me to get a dinner in a farmer house nearby and we spent rest of the day in there too. It was really a delicious dinner and the hosts were very friendly too, though they could not speak any English. The next morning, we rose up early to catch a glimpse of the sunrise on the wall in the city pass of Juyongguan. It was such an incredible sight with the sun rising slowly behind the snaking wall. After lingering on the wall for a while, we continued to hike for the Mutianyu section to complete our day trip. Mutianyu was even more amazing with fantastic views all over the section. Really enjoyed a good time there! The trekking and sightseeing as well as the relaxing – it was all fun and amazing! I just loved every minute of it! Great day trips and great memories!
