Incredible Half Day Hiking

Been in Beijing for a couple of days with my brother, we both enjoyed visiting the historic city. We had so much fun and eye-opening experiences over those days. There were so many fun things to fill every day while we were there. The palace, garden, park, shopping and gourmet food, it seemed the whole city was like a treasure-trove waiting us to explore. We both loved it there and really enjoyed every minute of our vacation down there.

Badaling Great Wall

One of the most unforgettable things we did is the hike along the wall we did at Badaling for half day. The day before we went there, our guide Jane advised us to make an early start for the half-day trip, so we got up very early and had a quick breakfast too. Then we waited for Jane to show up and soon she picked us up and we all got on a car and hit the road for Badaling. The ride was quick and soon we arrived at the foothill near the wall. Once we jumped off the car, Jane led us toward a cable car station to grab a ride up the wall instead of walk up the wall on foot. The ride was great and up in the air, we got a clear view of the snaking wall. It was as incredible as it could be and we both felt so excited to finally get to see the wall. The minute we were landed on the wall, we started to hike along the wall with Jane. In the meanwhile, Jane told us a lot about the history of the wall and we also took time to snap some photos and take in the surrounding views.

The wall itself is as impressive as it could be and very awe-inspiring too. Everything seemed so perfect that day - the weather was pleasant, lovely tour guide with a good sense of humor. At first, it was very easy to hike through the stone path, but after over an hour of walk on the wall, we both felt tired and could not continue. So we stopped to get some rest and catch breath. The experience on the wall was really amazing and we both felt this is what we have been looking for on our trip to Beijing - the adventure, incredible hike and blood-pumping climbs. Later, it was time to get down, we also grabbed a fun slide down the wall and it was fun too.

Overall, the half-day hike we did is highlight of our trip to Beijing.
