Puffing Up and Down

I am really glad we went to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu section. The walk on the wall is just incredible and we both had a great time and fun. It felt so amazing to discover the Great Wall of China in that way. Puffing up and down the wall is definitely blood-pumping experience to both of us.

Mutianyu Great Wall

It is such a pity we only had half day to explore the wall. We got up very early that day. Our guide is very funny and passionate. We hit it off right away and had a great talk on the way over there. The ride took about 1.5 hours and soon we arrived at the foothill of the Great Wall. We first headed for a cable car station to catch a ride up the wall. The ride is so much fun and soon we were landed on the flat path. We were both very excited to finally get to walk the wall in person. It felt so awesome so we started to walk along right away. Our guide was with us the whole time and kept telling us about the history and story of the Great Wall. It is more fun and enjoyable to get to know the wall that way.

There are not many people out there hiking the wall. The refreshing mountain air is really crispy and the countryside as well as the outdoors is as incredible as it can be. The wall itself is quite impressive too. There are many watch towers built on the wall and some parts of the wall got very steep, which made our walk very difficult. We had to take rest from time to time and soon we puffed our way up and down. But we were treated to quite a sight up there. The snaking wall made it all worth it. We also took plenty of photos up the wall and even climbed up a few towers to get a better view of the surroundings. The experience is just incredible and overwhelmed me a lot! When it was time to get down the wall, we also took a slide down. It was fun too. Next we headed back to the city and had some good rest in our hotel. Great Wall! Great half-day trip!

Terrific Half Day Hiking Tour

I really enjoyed a terrific half day Great Wall climbing in Beijing! The main reason I think is that I discovered a wonderful tour operator. Staying in Beijing for my business, I spare half day to enjoy relaxed and realized my dream. To my surprised is this tour type is very suitable for me. I liked it very much!

Badaling Great Wall

Tour guide picked me up at the hotel in the downtown area. I was very happy that day. Tour guide is a university student, very intelligent and considerate. Most important is that her English is very good telling me much about Beijing and the itineraries. On the journey to Badaling Great Wall, I tasted the suburb area' tranquility and natural charm. I liked this environment very much. Driver is non-smoker offering us fluent journey. About 1 hour, we arrived at the foot of Badaling Great Wall. After getting off the car, what appeared to me the wild appearance of surroundings. The vendors here are crowded selling all kinds of articles. After lingering for ten minutes, I started our hiking journey.

In the beginning, I was very happy, singing and appreciating. I thought I finally got my favorite, really proud and exciting. The grasses growing alongside are very delicate accompanying with this magnificent wonder year by year. Most of the important is the tourists coming here are less than I imagined. Oh, so many marks built in the Great Wall writing: No Littering Anywhere, Pay Attention to the Roads or No Running Anywhere and No Climbing Anywhere, etc many marks given to tourists. There are built the handrails both side suitable for the disable, elder and little children, wonderful design! Gradually, the delicate-design watchtower appeared in front of me. Oh, it is more terrific than the book said. Yes, there are four windows decorated. The ancient soldiers just through here observe the enemies. This time, I have been very tired. Sitting beside the wall, I closed my eyes feeling the surroundings. This kind of feeling is just experience only self-experiencing! After enjoying a relaxed, I went on my climbing journey.

About twenty minutes, when I saw the marks warning, I knew, it is not far from the terminal. I did my best to continue. Wow, so terrific! I finally enjoyed the bird view about the surroundings. I shouted to the far distance with the clear echoing sound. Such a wonderful half day tour, I liked very much!

Explore the Great Wall Off-the-Tourist-Path

Last week, me and my friend Leo visited a wild section of the Great Wall called Shixiaguan. The hiking we did out there is just incredible and the whole adventure is full of blood-pumping experiences. It felt so different to walk the unrestored wall and we both had a great time and fun while exploring the deserted wall. It is so amazing to see the original wall up close.

Shixiaguan Great Wall

We made an early start that day and headed out with our guide Joe and 4 other guys on a bus ride to Shixiaguan. It did take long for us to get there and the road is not very busy. Our excitement built up on our way over there as we both never visited the wall before. Soon, we made it there and there is not a soul out there by the time we reached the foothill of the wall. Pretty soon, we started to hike up the path. In the beginning, it is easy to hike along the path, but later, the path got very steep and it is quite difficult for us to climb up and down those steep parts. It felt so dangerous to climb up and down the steep parts of the path and we had to be more careful with every step we took. Definitely a whole new experience for both of us! We were both very proud and felt satisfied that we finally made it.

The sights up on the wall are breathtaking and completely blew us away. The ruins of the wall make great postcard photos and we both took dozens of the deserted watch towers and the snaking wall. The wilderness over there seems to go on and on and the snaking wall zigzags its way into the horizon. The sight felt so overwhelming and made it all worth the climbs. It is really fun to hike all the way up the wild wall and some parts of the wall are overgrown with bushes and shrubs, which made it even harder to hike through. We really had a lot of fun and a fabulous time while hiking up and down the path. The trip to the wild section of the wall really completed our trip to China.

Without any shopping stops, we really enjoyed every minute of that day trip and had fun as well!
