Truly Worthy Tour

Last time in Beijing, I have visited Beijing Badaling Great Wall and Mutianyu Great Wall. I like these magnificent buildings very much. Last Thursday, under the suggestion of my girl friend, we booked Jinshanling Great Wall day tour. We all felt exciting and this tour is finished so perfect!

Jinshanling Great Wall

The English of the tour guide is very perfect that everyone can know what she said. Even though more than 15 tourists share the bus, we cultivated very harmonious atmosphere. The traffic in Beijing downtown area is heavy but the driver is very skillful. He successfully got rid of the mass. About three hours driving, we came to the foot of Jinshanling Great Wall. What impressed me deeply is the tranquil environment, less tourists, fresh environment and magnificent Great Wall building. We wandered and appreciated leisurely deeply tasting the local culture.

After sharing some tips of hiking, we departure. Almost all the bricks have been destroyed. The sophisticated ancient wall is just in front of us. It is really the wild section with original feature without any decoration. I was very interested in this kind of atmosphere. The journey is very easy to climb. We climbed while appreciating the sceneries passing by. Walking on the ruined ground, I felt I have gone into the past years. About twenty minutes walking, we came to the legendary watchtower. This watchtower has lost its roof with destroyed walls. We choose one corner to sit down to enjoy the sophisticated section and quiet environment. My girl friend likes drawing very much. She carefully described this world wonder with her hand. I wandered around and took many pictures. To be different from other watchtowers, this watchtower is full of wild grasses in the gaps. After relaxing, we went on our journey. There was no vender on the hiking way. We communicated with each other and talked about the background of this section. We came to the famous Wangjing Tower, General Tower and the Taochun Tower. They are all the must-see scenic spot in the Jinshanling Great Wall. On the whole journey, tour guide gave us the legend why it is called Jinshan, sounds very interesting.

Turning back to see the journey we have passed through, I felt very proud. The scene cannot be described by words. There was no shopping on the whole journey. We really adventured a nice holiday!

Fully Explored the Great Wall

Been in Beijing for two weeks and never had a break from work to take in some sights in the city. Luckily, I had 3 days to spend at my own will, so I decided to pay a visit to see my favorite Chinese sight - the Great Wall. After comparing the different section of the wall, I added three sections to my itinerary.

Mutianyu Great Wall

My guide Jimmy picked me up from my hotel and then we hit the road to Mutianyu first. The ride was quite pleasant on our way over there. I first grabbed a cable car up the wall and then started to hike along the stone-paved path. I have spent about over 2 hours on the wall, walking, snapping pictures as well as taking in sights. The wall itself was well restored and very ideal for a leisurely walk. Afterwards, we hit the road again and this time we went to visit a huge graveyard called Ming Tombs. The scenic area is a lot of fun but there is nothing but a bunch of tombs down there. Then we headed to Jinshanling and stayed for the night at a small village at the foothill of the wall. Early in the morning on the next day, we hiked the wall at Jinshanling and the experience is even better than Mutianyu. I really had a great time up the wall and it is so much fun to hike through the steep path. Later we got down the wall from Simatai section and lodged at a farmhouse.

Jinshanlng Great Wall

The last day, we did an incredible trek on Simatai section and the path is even more dangerous than Jinshanling and I had to take some rest from time to time while hiking through those steep parts of the wall. As I could see, the section of the wall was not well restored and very wild and overgrown with shrubs and bushes. I got to say, hiking through the steep parts of the wall is very challenging to me but I was treated to quite a sight. The sight of the snaking wall undulating all the way up the rugged hills is just overwhelming. The trek I did on the wall is incredible too. The watch towers are so different from those at Mutianyu and very impressive.

Overall, the day-trip is no doubt the highlight of my stay in Beijing and I really enjoyed it to its fullest!

Ancient Memory

First time to Beijing, I love everything here, atmosphere combining ancient and modern, the delicate buildings, culture and the local lifestyle, etc. It is just like a legendary waiting for my discovery. Following my father, we booked the one day bus tour exploring the legendary Ming Tombs and Badaling Great Wall. Of course, we felt very exciting and proud. Everything is well-arranged by the tour operator. To our surprised is that bus tour is harmonious and we made new friends during the whole journey. I was very interested in Chinese ancient story told by the tour guide - Lily.

Ming Tombs

First attraction called Ming Tombs. Once arrived at Ming Tombs, I felt typical solemn and coldness. It is a spacious area housing large scale complex buildings. We were led to visit the Changling. It is the largest and magnificent building in Ming Tomb. Building architecture is very complex with traditional designing style, truly impressive and highly praised. The carving patterns are lifelike with skilful designing skills. The tour guide explained the background and culture along the whole journey. Everyone gets very interested in what she explained and the stories happened.

Badaling Great Wall

However, the most impressive and exciting moment is on the Badaling Great Wall. I always hear the famous Great Wall section from my mother and father without close seeing. Once seeing the magnificent layout, I really cannot believe my eyes. Our hiking journey starts in our exciting. Every one of us climbed the Great Wall on foot not choose the cable car. Stepping on the stone steps, this kind of feeling is hard to describe, very proud feeling. Experiencing so many years, they are still in well-preserved. The stone bricks are very large and hard bearing so many tourists passing through. To the regret is that there are so many vendors ranking along adding noisy atmosphere.

Long time but without laboring, tiredness surrounded me after hiking 1 hour. We got relaxed sometimes and took pictures with the surroundings and wall buildings. Once seeing the watchtower, we all got very exciting, climbing quickly. It is designed very simple but belongs to hard project in the ancient times. We entered into having a careful appreciation. Many carvings hang on the wall, clear and deep. It is truly big damage to the world wonder.

We lingered and appreciated. Sometimes, we were stuck in the thought and sometimes we sited for relaxing. When we stepped on the top enjoying the marvelous overview, I shouted proudly! It is truly a terrific tour saving much money, very meaningful!
