Incredible Great Wall Experience

I have been in Beijing for a few days and spent 5 days exploring the Great Wall of China. I visited dozens of sections of the wall with my private guide James Liu. It is fun and incredible to walk the wall and take in the countryside sights out there. Definitely once in a lifetime experience to me!

Mutianyu Great Wall

Some of the sections of the Great Wall I visited are well restored like Badaling, Mutianyu and Juyongguan. The wall itself at those sections is in good shape and great for a leisurely walk on the snaking wall. I was completely impressed by the sight of the snaking wall zigzagging its way up the rugged hills and disappearing into the horizon. There are so many great photo opportunities while hiking along the stone path. The watch towers and beacon towers built on the wall are quite impressive and I also saw a lot of relics related to war. I also got an opportunity to climb up some towers to get a better view of the surroundings. Along the way, James talked a lot about the history about the wall, which made my trip to the wall more fun and enjoyable. Later I kind of puffed up and down the path and had to take rest from time to time. By the time we had to get down I was really tired.

Simatai Great Wall

The most exciting trip is to the wild sections of the Great Wall like Jinshanling and Simatai. The wall at those sections is left to nature and some parts of the wall are nothing but some ruins. While walking on the wall I had a chance to see how the original wall looks like. It is very impressive and different from the well restored sections. The trek I did on the wall is really hard and quite challenging to me. But the breathtaking sights made it all worth it! I really had a great time climbing up and down the wall and taking in the sights up there. The ruined towers out there make great post-card photos. The trip to those wild sections of the Great Wall is fun and all about adventure.

Overall, it is an unforgettable 5-day trip I did in Beijing. Loved the wall!
