Highlight Section of Great Wall

Last week I visited a couple of sections of the Great Wall. Got to say I was impressed by the wall. It is architecturally beautiful, looked up close and personal. I really enjoyed a great walk on the wall at different sections. To be honest, I just loved Jinshanling and Huanghuacheng Great Wall. Those sections were as amazing as they could be!

Huanghuacheng Great Wall

It was the second day of my visit to Beijing that I was taken to spend an entire day at Huanghuacheng by my tour guide. The Great Wall walk aside, I also crashed there for the night at a local farm house. The scenery at Huanghuacheng was one of a kind and the trails were kind of off the beaten path, which made our walk along the wall pretty hard and challenging. But it was all worth it. I was rewarded by the breathtaking views, amazing countryside landscapes as well as the out of the way outdoors. I really had a full day filled with fun, relaxing walk and blood-pumping adventure. The lodge at the farm house definitely is a bonus for my walk on the wall. I got a good rest that night and even had a great dinner prepared by the host of the farm house. The experience at Huanghuacheng was just as amazing as it could be and I really enjoyed every minute of it.

The next day right after I had my breakfast, together with my tour guide, we hit the road again. This time we headed for Jinshanling section. Our walk on the wall at Jinshanling was easier than what we had at Huanghuacheng as many parts of the wall were complete and well paved with stone. However, there were some parts along the way that caused us some trouble to march on. They were built on steep cliffs, making it hard to climb over. The watch towers at Jinshanling were mostly crumbled with only some ruins left - they felt like falling down at any minute. But I put together some courage and still got near them, which turned out a great experience. I am really glad I did that. I took dozens of great pictures over there. Moreover, while I was walking on the wall, I had also wished that I brought some camping gears, that way I could camp the night away at Jinshanling. Too bad that slipped my mind. Anyway, I really enjoyed a good time and had a lot of fun on the wall. Definitely once in a lifetime experience!
