Great Time in Mutianyu Great Wall

Beijing–the capital city of China, I like it very much. When I got to Beijing, the first impression is that it is really an international metropolis. My flight arrived at 11:00pm and the nigh scenery of Beijing is so charming. On my way to the hotel, I deeply lost myself in the dream feeling.

I have already visited the famous and the symbols of Beijing–the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. So this time I joined the group of One Day Mutianyu Great Wall Tour. I really have a nice trip with Beijinglandscapes today. During the trip, the experienced English speaking tour guide told me a lot about the history of the Great Wall and Ming Tombs as well as the long and glorious history of Beijing. So although the tour is very short, I still learnt a lot.

Mutianyu Great Wall and Green Mountain

The tour began at 8:00am and the first destination is Mutianyu Great Wall. I know in China there is an old saying that: He who has not been to the Great Wall is not a true man. Now I came here to enjoy this world wonder. It is located in the suburb of Beijing. The tour guide said that it is the one of the new 16 King scenic spots in Beijing and the popular section of great wall in Beijing. For the construction of the Ming Dynasty, Mutianyu Great Wall was known as the guard, the imperial tombs of the northern barrier of the ancient capital. And now it has become one of the symbols of Beijing due to its beautiful scenery and large scale. In order to enjoy the panoramic view, I chose a cable car. Having a bird's eye view of the whole area, the experience is wonderful!

Entrance to Dingling

After a typical Chinese lunch, I visited another historical site–Ming Tombs. It is said that Ming Tombs of are the tombs of Ming emperors in China and during 230 years, there has built thirteen emperors tombs, seven concubine tombs and one eunuch tomb. I visited Dingling, the only underground tomb and Changling, the largest tomb in Ming Tombs during this trip. I was amazed at the four national treasures: Golden Delicious, Coronet, glowing pearl and the Ming three-color.

Forget to say that on the way to Mutianyu Great Wall, I also had a tour to a large scale jade processing factory from where I got to know the processes of Chinese jade carving and Chinese jade culture. I really enjoy a wonderful trip in Beijing and thank you very much for the considerate services.

Magnificent View on Jinshanling Great Wall

"He who has not been to the Great Wall is not a true man." Now I came to Beijing to be a hero. When I told my friends I would like to have a Beijing tour during the holiday, they who have been to Beijing told me that the Jinshanling Great Wall is the tourist destination really worth visiting. So when got to the hotel I booked a 1 Day Bus Tour to Jinshanling Great Wall online.

Panoramic View of Jinshanling

The tour guide picked me up at 7:00 am and then started the trip with other 9 people from different countries. A little bit far from the downtown, we arrived at the destination nearly 11:00 am. On the way there, the English tour guide told us a lot about the history of Jinshanling Great Wall. Jinshanling Great Wall is one of the most representative sections of the Great Wall in Beijing which was built in Ming Dynasty. The history of Jinshanling Great Wall has been four hundred years, during which it suffered earthquake, the ancient fire of war and modern warfare reminder loss.

Watchtower View

The tour guide also told us that Jinshanling Great Wall enjoys different scenery in different seasons all the year round. Spring to Jinshanling Great Wall, a verdant hillsides with a variety of unknown flowers blooming and emitting a strong aroma; in summer, lush trees, gurgling mountain streams, colorful pink clouds and a rainbow appeared in the sky after the rain, the Jinshanling Great Wall is in colorful dress; during the fall season, it is covered with all kinds of wild fruits branches; and in winter, here becomes a silver world.

Original Wall

His words made me very exciting. Finally arrived, we have about 3~4 hours to enjoy the scenery of the Great Wall. Thanks to the flat ladders, climbing Jinshanling Great Wall didn't cost too much energy. But since late autumn now, the flowers had already wither and fall. Thanks to the fine sunny weather, I enjoyed a wide view that I felt really fresh as if I were escape from the busy city life.

After the trip, all of us were very tired that on the way back to the hotel, the bus was quiet. I think the best time to visit Jinshanling Great Wall is from May to early October. If time allows, I will come back again to take some beautiful photos.
