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!
