Wonderful Summer Resort

Last week, together with my mother, we enjoyed Badaling Great Wall and Mutianyu Great Wall. These two attractions brought us too much. I would give all my thanks to the tour guide - Lisa, she offered best service and good explaining on each attraction.

Badaling Great Wall

First destination is Badaling Great Wall. Once arrived at the building, I suddenly got a shock. So crowded tourists gathered! Tourists in different age step squeezed in this Great Wall building. At the beginning of the journey, my mother and I felt very leisurely and cozy. We saw the Great Wall landscapes and the traditional bricks. The long-distance building stretched to the far distance, very lifelike. All the watchtower buildings are built very delicate with complex building architecture. Surrounded them, we took a lot of pictures. Along the wall, there are many vendors ranking along selling all kind of souvenirs and food as well as drinks. We brought one bottle of water for relaxing. In the half journey, the strong sunlight permeating our face and mind showed very hot. At last, after relaxing some minutes, we gave up climbing on and get down to the foot. In the afternoon, we enjoyed typical Chinese lunch and had a short relaxed. We asked the appearance of Mutianyu Great Wall and hesitated go on or giving up, because the weather is too hot. We did not want to have the tired labor. Tour guide just left one sentence, it would not make you regret!

Wow, it is really a nice attraction with large scale forests. All of these trees are seemed to be sending out cool wind blowing to our faces and body. My mother and I, we all liked the Mutianyu Great Wall very much. Most of the important is that tourists coming here are less than Badaling Great Wall. We held enthusiastic feeling enjoying our leisurely climbing. Just at the beginning, I could taste the flavor sent out from the oil. The wet land is the cozy for us. The beginning wooden steps are the fabulous. It is just the summer resort facilities creating cozy environment. About ten minutes, we arrived at the long-distance ground made by the bricks. Under the trees, we enjoyed the first time relax in the Mutinayu Great Wall, very cool and comfortable. My mother drank water and I took pictures with breathtaking sceneries far away. The mountains far distance are all covered by luxuriant trees showing mystery and solemn. We did our best to conquer.

It is really a nice resort for summer holiday. I liked the climbing experience in Mutianyu Great Wall, I really gained much!

Best Trek Experience

Last week me and my friend Joe spent two days exploring the Great Wall. Our guide Chen took us to visit a few sections of the Great Wall including Mutianyu, Jinshanling and Simatai. We really had a great time over there, enjoying our trek, taking in rural sights as well as exploring the wall itself!

Jinshanling Great Wall

First day we were taken to see the wall at Mutianyu and a section of Jinshanling. We made an early start for our visit to Mutinayu the day we set out with Chen. Our ride to Mutianyu took us over an hour to get there. We spent about two hours on the wall. The section of the wall was well restored, making our trek on the wall quite easy. All we had to do on the wall was walking around, taking in the sights and enjoying the refreshing outdoors over there! There were plenty of incredible picture opportunities during our walk on the wall. It was really amazing to see the snaking wall up close and personal. We really had a great time on the wall. After our lunch break, we hit the road for Jinshanling with Chen. We did our hike over there for over an hour before we got down the wall and found our way to our accommodation at a farm house nearby. Both of us had a full day, though tired and dead beat!

The next day we went to hike rest section of Jinshanling and part of Simatai. Those sections were kind of wilder than Mutianyu section, overgrown with shrubs and bushes, with crumbling paths along the way. Our trek on the wall got really difficult as part of the path was very steep and dangerous. It took us quite a long time to get a hang of climbing through those steep sections of the wall. Though the steep climbs were much of a challenge for us, we were rewarded to quite a sight, indeed! The views were breathtaking and the crumbling watch towers were just spectacular! It was hard to imagine how they survived the harsh surroundings over there. Moreover, the crumbling watch towers made great photos.

Overall, we both loved our hike between Jinshanling and Simatai and definitely want to do it again, given the opportunity. What a marvelous trip in Beijing!

Impressive Original Great Wall

I clearly remembered on the first day of my tour, after exploring the Ming Tomb, we were transferred to the farmhouse near Jinshanling Great Wall. To be honest, at that time, I have tasted the tranquil and wild features.

Jinshanling Great Wall

My mother got up very early, because she has heard this mysterious Great Wall for long time. We started the hiking journey from the east section. Morning sunlight is full of strength and vigorous feeling. We backpacked the camera, drinks and my favorite snacks starting the dreamful journey. The road is easy to hike, very fluent and wild. Most of the wall bricks have been destroyed only leaving the ruined sections. Under the light breeze, I could smell the flavor of the earth. For the summer season, all the dewdrops in the grasses send out sparkling color, delicate and lovely. I think this time, the air is the most fresh in this metropolis city, I was really mixed into this tranquil suburb area without any man-made decorations. Wow, it is just the watchtower. It has lost the roof, only the destroyed windows and grasses as well as the grey walls. Tourists are becoming more and more. We greeted with each other throw the best wishes. After half an hour, we choose one corner for sitting and relaxing. Drinking the water, appreciating the natural sceneries, I suddenly found the water become sweet. The sceneries in close distance and the far distance are all showing the fresh color.

Compared to Jinshanling Great Wall, Simatai Great Wall showed more dangerous and unique full of risk sections. There are many section roads full of ruined bricks. We paid much attention hiking on the journey, too adventurous and exciting. I helped my mother and we passed through one by one ruined section. Successful feeling is full of my mind and body. Sceneries here are also very beautiful with several birds singing. They seemed to be speaking to the travelers here. Slowly, we got the half journey. We choose the watchtower for leisurely appreciating and relax. I walked around the destroyed building thinking too much, Chinese ancient history, culture and the local typical tranquility. The sun raises high and the temperature is becoming hotter and hotter. Tourists here are less than just now. We took out the cameras taking some pictures with this risky building. I did not know I still housed many interest.

On the way back to the downtown area, all my nerves are still inspired for the magnificent Great Wall wonder!
