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!

Amazing Wall Experience

Great day for the Great Wall experience! I had done some research and sought out advice before I flew to Beijing with my kids. Then we all decided to go to Mutianyu section of the Great Wall - rather than a closer but very touristy section called Badaling. Roy had been to the Badaling section and told me it was too touristy and packed with Chinese visitors, as well as vendors selling drinks all along the wall. All things considered, Badaling is just not as peaceful for a walk on the wall as Mutianyu. Instead opting for a package tour, I just join a half day tour only contains Mutianyu Great Wall.

Mutianyu Great Wall
The half-day itinerary included a place where we planned to go for lunch that had been recommended to me by Roy. The whole trip went very well and just as we anticipated. First, we drove about an hour to Mutianyu and passed a Schoolhouse before we made our way up to the cable car station. The schoolhouse was also the destination we would have lunch later. We then climbed up a steep hill to get to the cable car station for a lift ride up the wall. There were also lots of vendors selling t-shirts, Great Wall souvenirs, food and water on our way up the wall but we did not stop to buy anything at all after listening to the advice of our guide. The cable car ride took us up the flat path on the Great Wall. And once we landed on the path, we started to walk along. It was so exciting to walk the steps and stand on the Great Wall of China. It was really cool stuff to do as my kids told me.

The wall itself is no less than an engineering wonder. Me and my kids were overwhelmed by the massive wall. The sight of the wall snaking way into the horizon totally blew my mind. I kept thinking how this could have been built on the mountains all by human power. The weather that day was amazing too, with blue sky, a little cool, but great for walking. The air was crispy up high on the mountains. We all hiked for quite a long time and took our time to enjoy the views. At noon, it was time to get down and we grabbed a slide down, which was really fun.

Overall, it was really a memorable half-day trip we did in Beijing. Loved it!
