Marvelous Badaling Great Wall

I really want to praise the tour operator offering us such an excellent half day tour. I dare to say it is more marvelous than the multi-days tour I booked several years ago. We really enjoy our tour at Badaling Great Wall.

Badaling Great Wall

Tour guide and the driver picked us up in the early morning. We saw each other at the exit of the hotel we stayed. The weather on that day is hot but not influences our feeling. The air-conditioner car is very cozy making my families pleasant and happy. On the whole journey, we appreciated the sceneries passing by. I got the suburb area of Beijing, typical tranquil and fresh. It has big difference with environment in the downtown area. After arriving at the foot of Badaling Great Wall, tour guide helped us take out the preparations, food and drinks. The temperature here is lower than the city center. It encourages us much for the hiking experience. After appreciating the surrounded vendors, we started our journey.

At the beginning, climbing journey is simple for every one of us. Especially my father, after see the watchtower, he became very exciting. It is same as the book said, grave and magnificent. With the windows decorated, the ancient soldiers just stood here for observing the enemies, my father told us. Suddenly, we laughed at his serious feeling. It is best that there are vendors selling the water on the wall. At that time, I thought, how they carry so many stores climbing the wall, so heavy and dangerous. The water here sold is certainly very expensive. My father is the first person getting tired. He ordered to take the cable car. My sister followed her. My father and I, we just keep climbing by foot, even though we sent out sweat all the time. For us, who conquered the magnificent building, who is the hero! We helped each other for the long-distance hiking journey. After seeing the mark writing the steep stages, I felt a little nervous, because I was tired very much. Under the encouragement of father, I kept on. Each step showed 90 degree, just like elegant mountain waiting for our pass, very challengeable! I counted and did my best. Last, we saw the mark, there are 30 steps reaching the top. I felt all the powerful strength followed me.

I succeed. Sitting on the earth with all the ideas flying around, truly marvelous feeling!

Best Trek

I have been in Beijing with my wife for a couple of days and those days and we have seen plenty historic sites in the city but never got out further. The last day of our trip to Beijing, we decided to go for a trek on the wall to complete our trip to China. We joined a tour to visit the Great Wall at Badaling section with a half day.

Badaling Great Wall

Our tour guide Amy picked us up in the morning and made an early start on our trip to the wall. It did not take long to get there but the mist still did not disappear by the time we stopped at the foothill. We soon got the tickets and grabbed a chair lift up the hill to get on top of the wall. The minute we landed on the wall, we started to hike along with Amy. The sun slowly came out and the mountain air was really crispy up there. The views completely blew us away with its beauty. Our trek on the wall went on and on, after over an hour of walk, both of us got sweaty and really tired and had to stop to catch some breath. So we sat by a watch tower with Amy and talked about stuff for a while. Along the way, she kept filling us in about the stories and history about the wall. It was really fascinating to know there was so much more hidden behind the wall. The history about the wall made our walk on the wall more fun and enjoyable and both of us enjoyed it!

After we rested for quite a long time, we stood up and started trekking again. There were some parts on the wall which were very steep, making our trek on the wall kind of like climb. But we were regarded by those breathtaking sights. The snaking wall seemed to go on and on until it disappeared into the horizon. We were both glad we got the opportunity to see the wall up close and personal. Totally worth every minute of it! Almost lost track of the time, soon it was time to get down the wall. We also took a fun slide to get down the hill. Overall, the experience of visiting the wall was really great and loved it!

Exciting Great Wall Tour Hiking

I dare to say, the two days Great Wall hiking tour is the most terrific tor that I have never explored in the past years. Much thanks to my friend. We two really enjoy high on the whole journey. We all held many interests to Chinese history and culture. Traffic in Beijing downtown area is so bad that we delay about half an hour.

Mutianyu Great Wall

The bright weather gave me a big encouragement. Driver is very responsible offering us safe and cozy environment. Once arrival at Mutianyu Great Wall, we all go very exciting. Under the soft breeze, the green color in this area sends out dazzling features. There are many tourists lingering here, praising and signing for the magnificent buildings and the best preserved appearance. After stepped on the building, I can see the essence beauty of this world wonder. It is really deserved the high fame as the essence of Chinese Great Wall buildings. We went on our climbing. Sometimes, we sited down for a while; sometimes, we drank water for long-time appreciating. Weather is too terrific that we really want to cherish every minute staying here. There are many vendors along the wall selling all kinds of souvenirs, food and drinks. What I was interests is the watchtowers and the holes appeared in the wall buildings. They are just the witness of Chinese war time and profound history. Every certain distance, there will be mark established for warning us being careful for the long climbing journey.

Jinshanling Great Wall

Compared to Mutianyu Great Wall, Jinshanling showed very wild. On the second day, after enjoying the breakfast, we came to Jinshanling Great Wall. It is very hard to find the best preserved sections in the wall building. Earth and grasses paved along the whole journey created very harmonious environment. Most important is that we can find the prints of Chinese history. Most of all the bricks have been ruined full of red brick powder. It is the late summer, breeze showed little cool blowing through our skin. I really tasted Chinese original culture standing in this original building. Tourists here are less than Mutianyu Great Wall. We gained the free time leisurely climbing. Standing on the high point, we can see the residence houses far distance. I liked this kind of atmosphere very much. We started from the east section for the west section of Simatai Great Wall. Just entered into Simatai Great Wall, it gave me the steepy features, very wild and trick. We helped each other passing through each dangerous step. At last, we successfully conquered it. Unthinkable exciting!

Tour guide Tina did give us the best help on the whole journey. Highly recommended the tour!
