Thrilling Adventure

Last week I went off the beaten path to visit the wild sections of the Great Wall with a few friends. The trip went very well and we all had a great time and a lot of fun that day.

Gubeikou Great Wall

Our guide picked us up from the hotel and then we hit the road on a van ride. We first visited the Great Wall at Gubeikou section. The wall is so off the beaten path there and the paths are broken all over the place. The hills are very steep and it is really difficult to climb up and down the broken paths. But that is part of the fun while hiking the wild wall. Soon we all got tired and had to take some rest after over an hour of puffing up and down the ruined paths. The wild wall is overgrown with bushes and shrubs, making our hiking even more difficult. But we were treated to quite a sight up on the wall. The snaking wall zigzags its way up the rugged hills till it disappears into the far horizon. We took plenty of great pictures while hiking along the wall. We all got an opportunity to see what the original wall looks like on our trip down there. The hiking we did up on the wall is so exciting and we had so much fun while puffing up and down the overgrown paths.

Later we had lunch at the foothill and moved on to visit the Great Wall at Jinshanling. We only visited the eastern part of the wall there. The wall down there is a lot easier to hike than Gubeikou but still very steep. There were few people hiking on the wall down there and we all felt we had the wild wall all to ourselves. The experience is just incredible and we really had a great time on the wall just we did at Gubeikou. Our guide also told us a lot history about the wall. That made our hiking even more fun and enjoyable. It is just amazing to take in the ruins down there and the scenery is very spectacular. Moreover, there are so many great photo opportunities at every bend while hiking up and down the wall. Later our adventure travel ended on a pleasant note and we all got a safe ride back to our hotel.

Overall, the trip is quite an essential Chinese experience!
