Just Love Mutianyu Great Wall

To our surprise, we explored Mutianyu Great Wall saving so much. There is no shopping stop in the whole journey. Really glad we saved a lot of money and time!

Mutianyu Great Wall

For so many years, I contributed myself in the work, really tired and boring. Under the suggestion of my friend, I booked this tour. Company service is very considerate that I was arranged well. On the second day, I got up early and waited for the tour guide. After breakfast, I came out of the hotel and saw the bus and tour guide. Getting on the bus, I saw many tourists who gave me warm greeting. On the whole journey, we chatted with each other with fluent English from Chinese history to Chinese culture. This bus is full of laughing.

Once arrived at the destination, we were ordered to getting off in order. Wow, so charming and fresh! The whole area is covered by large scale green trees, very breathtaking! Although it the early autumn, I can feel the local hot temperature, perhaps because of the long journey. For the luxuriant trees and forests, the magnificent Great Wall appeared little. After sharing some tips, we started our hiking journey. We helped each other, passing through the beginning wooden steps. The environment in the foot is very tranquil. We just felt we have been mixing into the forests world. About twenty minutes walking, we came to the Great Wall ground. So long and clean, hard and best preserved! Walking on the Great Wall, I suddenly arouse the ideas that I finally came to the word wonder. Everything here seemed to be doing their best to bring me back to the ancient times.

What I liked best is the beacon towers and the construction of these watchtowers. It is really hard to imagine how the ancient laborers carry these heavy bricks on the wall under the poor condition. Sitting on the ground, lying on the wall, I was stuck in the imagination. Sometimes, few birds flying away told us their happy feeling singing. When we were to arrive at the top, a mark writing the danger warning us! It is really dangerous passing through the steep steps.

Standing on the top enjoying the birds view, it is really a terrific enjoyment!

Adrenaline-pumping Trek at Jinshanling

We have been in Beijing for a couple of days after a tedious flight from San Francisco. So far we have had a great time and a lot of fun exploring the historic city. On our last day in Beijing we decided to venture off the beaten path to hike Jinshanling Great Wall and we booked this tour online travel with our guide Paul.

Jinshanling Great Wall

To make an early start to one of the furthest and less touristy sections of the Great Wall, we woke up very early. We eventually arrived after about two and a half hours of car ride and were dropped off at the starting point of a hike of the wall. Seeing the isolated section of the Great Wall for the first time, we were both very excited and very careful to hike the wall. There were some parts of the path that were very dangerous to hike through and you just need to be extra careful and one hundred percent attentive to walk through those parts of the wall. It was nothing like we did at Mutianyu which is a well restored section of the wall. Our hike at Jinshanling was more exciting and full of blood-pumping experiences. Very few visitors made the longer trek out there so we really had a relatively peaceful trek up there. We both had a lot of fun with our trek along the way. It was extremely difficult to make it to the end of the wild wall, yet the sight made it all worthwhile.

The wall itself was as impressive as it could be and there were more watch towers at that section. It was sunny that day and standing on the highest point of the wall, we could clearly see far distance. The wall snaked its way upon rugged hills overgrown with shrubs and bush and got very steep at some parts of the wall with loose stones and bricks all over the path. There were times we had to stop to get some rest to continue our trek up there. Other times we kept ourselves busy snapping amazing photos of the snaking wall and the spectacular countryside surrounding the wall. Moreover, Paul had filled us a lot of history about the wall, which made our trek on the wall more fun and enjoyable. Overall, it was really a memorable day trip we did in Beijing!

Half Day Hiking Journey in Beijing

Last Saturday, I explored Mutianyu Great Wall with my father. We all liked the Great Wall section very much. Its unique beauty and charming all left us deep impression. During the whole journey, tour guide - Linda gave us a big encouragement. Although, it is only the half day, we enjoyed very happy and leisurely.

In the early morning, my father got up and did the preparation. He told me we should dress the loosen clothes and the water is a must to take. He is very considerate preparing everything for me. I just enjoyed the breakfast offered by the hotel. For short minutes, tour guide called us. After getting the entrance of the hotel, we saw our car, very clean and in good-condition. Driver offered us a best environment with experienced driving skill. About one hour, we got to the destination. Wow, so terrific. Mutianyu Great Wall is surrounded by the luxuriant trees, green and clear. I can't see the whole layout of Great Wall but the breathtaking sceneries. After selecting the preparations, we started our hiking journey.

The environment here is tranquil and charming. Tourists are less with sincere greetings. I saw several children jumping on the wall building very naughty. I took the pictures with the surroundings while talking with my father about the background of this sophisticated Great Wall. The beginning journey is very easy to pass that we don't need any relax. After seeing the cannon model located on the ground, we become exciting. Yes, it reflected Chinese ancient war period. We sited down appreciating the surrounded sceneries and landscapes. Not far away, there is typical watch tower, magnificent and vigorous. It is best preserved building with lots of carvings and marks. So many children are playing inside, climbing the window, jumping up and down. After appreciating this, we all felt very sad. I just wanted to say, many behaviors should be forbidden in the world wonder. We should protect it but destroy. We went on hiking. I really could not imagine how these vendors climb on the Great Wall so high with their stores. When we would soon arrived at the top of the Great Wall, my father started to be tired. He climbed with hard breath saying nothing. I helped him passing through the dangerous steps. I just loved the feeling that doing our best to conquer.

Marvelous scenery standing on the top! Half day journey is so terrific that I would store this memory forever!
