Deep Visit to Jinshanling Great Wall

Come to Beijing visiting my grandfather, we booked this tour. From my father, I got Jinshanling Great Wall connecting closely with Chinese ancient history and culture from the architecture and original appearance. So I was very curious about this section.

Jinshanling Great Wall

On the departure day, tour guide picked us in the afternoon. We prepared some thick clothes, because we will stay at the Jinshanling Great Wall for overnight. My mother, father and I, we all got very exciting about everything. Driver is responsible helping us carry the luggage into the trunk. We got on the car chatting with tour guide - Anna. Her English is very fluent. We communicated from the Jinshanling Great Wall to modern Beijing.

Beijing suburb area is very tranquil with green trees. Even though it is the deep autumn season, I did not feel any dreariness. About two hour driving, we arrived at Jinshanling Great Wall. Under the leading of tour guide, we started hiking from the west section. It is indeed that Jinshanling Great Wall is the witness of history. All the walls are almost ruined seriously. What reflected to my eyes are wild appearances and features. We climbed on. The road is very easy to pass through. I the gaps of the bricks, it is full of the wild grasses. Watch towers are not like that in Badaling Great Wall. There was no roof on them. Standing inside, watching the sky, a kind of sophisticated feeling come to me. I did not know how to express the feeling. I only got the ancient culture clearly!

Gradually, we saw the red sunlight sending out from the west direction. It is just like playing the hide-and-seek with us. So charming the sunset view! We stand on the Jinshanling Great Wall seeing the great phenomenon. Sometimes, there are few birds flying away bringing us the hops and happy atmosphere. I felt we are situating in the edge of the sky, feeling everything and the life of this section. In the night, we stayed at the local farm house deep experiencing the local farm life and the delicious farm dishes. The hosts are passionate taking care of us all the time. We cultivated warm relationship with them. Even though, they cannot speak English, we can really get their sincere.

I liked this two days Jinshanling Great Wall tour too much. It brings us not only the climbing tour but a warm and meaningful life experience!

Engineering Feat

Visited Beijing this summer, and saw plenty of historic sites in the city. It is a really fun trip I did in China. I really loved the city and had a lot of fun on that vacation. The Great Wall of China is the highlight of my travel to Beijing.

Badaling Great Wall

My trip to the Great Wall lasted for only half day and the section I visited with my guide is called Badaling, the most popular section in Beijing. To avoid the crowd and traffic, we made an early start in the morning. After he met me at the hotel, we hit the road on a car ride to Badaling. To save time, I took the cable car up the wall and the ride is fun and I got a good look at the snaking wall. Visited the Great Wall for the first time, I was really excited that I could walk the wall and see it up close. The engineering feat is quite impressive and lives up to its hype as world heritage site. My guide filled me in with a lot of history about the wall, which made my trip to the wall even more fun and enjoyable.

The most memorable thing I did on the wall is no doubt the trek. It is really fun to hike up and down the stone path. There are plenty steep parts along the wall, which made it quite challenging to climb up and down the wall. After an hour, I had to take rest from time to time to. The watch towers are impressive too and I used them to mark the path that I have hiked. The scenery out there is incredible with the snaking and the never-ending countryside all over the place. There are plenty of opportunities to snap great photos and as I made it to the wall earlier than others, it was not crowded at the section that I walked with my guide. I could explore the wall at my own pace and enjoy myself as well while hiking along the path.

Overall, the half day trip to the Great Wall I did in Beijing ended very well and I really had a great time that day. Great trip! Great memory!

Adventurous Climbing

Last Saturday, I enjoyed a typical visit to Beijing. I always met the Chinese magnificent Great Wall in the book or on TV.  I really do not know they are so amazing until my appreciation!

Great Wall Tour

With good behaviors, our driver helped us carry our luggage all the way. We do not need to worry about everything. Tour guide is very considerate and informative. She gave us considerate tips and advises on the journey. First attraction is Badaling Great Wall. Perhaps, it is in the autumn season, temperature shows a little colder but the sunshine sent our sparkling light, truly attractive. After arriving at the Badaling Great Wall, I took out my camera; my mother is responsible for the food and my father took care of us. Standing to have an overlook, what appeared is just the tranquil environment and large numbers of tourists. I liked it very much, alive and naughty. After getting some tips, we started our climbing journey. Once stepped on this miracle section, all my nerves are inspired. It is not simply the tourism but deep discover to widen vision.

Great Wall Tour

Along the magnificent wall, we walked and appreciated. The plants on the mountains far away gradually become yellow colors. With the autumn wind blowing, all my borings disappeared. Compared to other tourists, we climbed faster. We carefully enjoyed the bricks and sceneries. Some are ruined seriously we saw, sophisticated and mysterious! Not long time, the beacon tower appeared in front of us. It showed unique mysterious and holy. I admire the building construction very much. It is so marvelous standing still attracting many tourists appreciation and admire. I though it very simple with four windows to observe the enemies in the ancient times. I took a lot of pictures with the landscapes far distance standing inside. During this time, my mother really cannot stand for the hiking journey. She is very tired. My father and I are still ok. Much thanks to the hand rails established on both sides. Under the help of us, we successfully got on the top, very tired but exciting. After the one hours hiking, we saw the marvelous layout of Badaling Great Wall. It is really like an elegant dragon hovering along the mountain, vigorous and alive.

Compared to Badaling Great Wall, Mutianyu Great Wall presents more soft and charming. We all liked this tour very much, really widening vision!
