Wonderful Summer Resort

Last week, together with my mother, we enjoyed Badaling Great Wall and Mutianyu Great Wall. These two attractions brought us too much. I would give all my thanks to the tour guide - Lisa, she offered best service and good explaining on each attraction.

Badaling Great Wall

First destination is Badaling Great Wall. Once arrived at the building, I suddenly got a shock. So crowded tourists gathered! Tourists in different age step squeezed in this Great Wall building. At the beginning of the journey, my mother and I felt very leisurely and cozy. We saw the Great Wall landscapes and the traditional bricks. The long-distance building stretched to the far distance, very lifelike. All the watchtower buildings are built very delicate with complex building architecture. Surrounded them, we took a lot of pictures. Along the wall, there are many vendors ranking along selling all kind of souvenirs and food as well as drinks. We brought one bottle of water for relaxing. In the half journey, the strong sunlight permeating our face and mind showed very hot. At last, after relaxing some minutes, we gave up climbing on and get down to the foot. In the afternoon, we enjoyed typical Chinese lunch and had a short relaxed. We asked the appearance of Mutianyu Great Wall and hesitated go on or giving up, because the weather is too hot. We did not want to have the tired labor. Tour guide just left one sentence, it would not make you regret!

Wow, it is really a nice attraction with large scale forests. All of these trees are seemed to be sending out cool wind blowing to our faces and body. My mother and I, we all liked the Mutianyu Great Wall very much. Most of the important is that tourists coming here are less than Badaling Great Wall. We held enthusiastic feeling enjoying our leisurely climbing. Just at the beginning, I could taste the flavor sent out from the oil. The wet land is the cozy for us. The beginning wooden steps are the fabulous. It is just the summer resort facilities creating cozy environment. About ten minutes, we arrived at the long-distance ground made by the bricks. Under the trees, we enjoyed the first time relax in the Mutinayu Great Wall, very cool and comfortable. My mother drank water and I took pictures with breathtaking sceneries far away. The mountains far distance are all covered by luxuriant trees showing mystery and solemn. We did our best to conquer.

It is really a nice resort for summer holiday. I liked the climbing experience in Mutianyu Great Wall, I really gained much!

My 2 Days Jinshanling Excursion

We made our way to Beijing last week on a flight from Shanghai. Spent a couple days in the city proper exploring a bunch of historic sightseeing, we both had a good time and fun over those days. Later we decided to explore outside Beijing to see the Great Wall at an off-the-beaten-road section called Jinshanling.

Jinshanling Great Wall

Being first time visitors to crumbling section of the wall, we booked the secret wall tour at the hotel. The next morning we made an early start in an attempt to beat the early morning Beijing traffic and get more time on the wall. The section of wall that we went to took us about 2.5 hours to get there. On our ride over there, our guide told us that parts of it were restored and some parts were not. We started the walk at about 10:30am and after 2 hours of hiking straight up (the hike was more like climbs) we made it to the final tower in that section of wall. Both of us got really tired and sweaty in such hot weather. But it was totally worth it as we were treated to quite a sight over there. It was clear, sunny day and the views from the wall were just incredible. We were both glad we hired a guide for our hike over there because we would not have made it to the last section of the wall on our own!

On the way up we only came across a few backpackers so it was like we had the crumbling wall all to ourselves! While hiking along the path, we kept busy taking photos here and there - that was part of the fun of hiking to the Great Wall! As time went by, soon it was time to head back down... our legs almost gave way the whole way down. The walk at Jinshanling was once in a lifetime experience and looking back we got very, very lucky as we could stay overnight nearby for our next day hiking which turned out just as amazing!

Exciting Jinshanling Great Wall Hiking Tour

Staying in Beijing for three years, I visited Badaling Great Wall and Mutianyu Great Wall. These two buildings have best preserved appearance and charming sceneries, especially Mutianyu Great Wall. Since I liked Chinese ancient history and culture very much, so this time, I chose the wild section, Jinshanling!

Jinshanling Great Wall

I have heard that Jinshanling Great Wall is the most original building in the earlier time. But because of its far distance from Beijing center, I was failed to climb. Last Saturday, together with my friend, we left the most meaningful impression on it. Tour guide was very considerate and picked us up from the hotel and transferred to this fairy land. About three hours later, we arrived. At that time, I did not clearly see its whole appearance but the top and its peak. It is summer season when Jinshanling Great Wall showed a little sophisticated. After getting some tips, we started our journey. The road is soil full of wet earth and wild grasses. After several minutes, we got the step. If I described it as step, it is wrong. In fact, they are all the earth steps. What to my surprised is that this Great Wall has been destroyed much without completely walls and watchtowers. We took a lot of pictures with this mysterious attraction including its floor, ruined walls and the wild grasses as well as the charming sceneries far distance.

We climbed and talked with each other. The level of difficulty can be classed as "relaxing", even if certain paths are tricky. Appreciating the far distance, this elegant project presented tiny. But I could see clearly its dragon-style layout. It is truly a nice place to enjoy ancient Chinese culture. With original features and the wild appearance, Jinshanling Great Wall carved my mind deeply. After walking to the watchtower, we saw the ruined wall without roof. All my nerves became more inspired. We sit on the corner and enjoy the cool feeling the breeze brought from the back mountain, very ease and cozy. Sky is typical blue mixing with some white clouds. Although the summer is hot, we still felt very comfortable in Beijing suburb area. We walked far sharing our feelings and experiences on the journey. I did not know how far we walked. I only knew we stayed on this fairy attraction for four three hours.

I cherished the Jinshanling Great Wall experience very much. It brought me too much from body to the mind!
