Adrenaline-pumping Trek at Jinshanling

We have been in Beijing for a couple of days after a tedious flight from San Francisco. So far we have had a great time and a lot of fun exploring the historic city. On our last day in Beijing we decided to venture off the beaten path to hike Jinshanling Great Wall and we booked this tour online travel with our guide Paul.

Jinshanling Great Wall

To make an early start to one of the furthest and less touristy sections of the Great Wall, we woke up very early. We eventually arrived after about two and a half hours of car ride and were dropped off at the starting point of a hike of the wall. Seeing the isolated section of the Great Wall for the first time, we were both very excited and very careful to hike the wall. There were some parts of the path that were very dangerous to hike through and you just need to be extra careful and one hundred percent attentive to walk through those parts of the wall. It was nothing like we did at Mutianyu which is a well restored section of the wall. Our hike at Jinshanling was more exciting and full of blood-pumping experiences. Very few visitors made the longer trek out there so we really had a relatively peaceful trek up there. We both had a lot of fun with our trek along the way. It was extremely difficult to make it to the end of the wild wall, yet the sight made it all worthwhile.

The wall itself was as impressive as it could be and there were more watch towers at that section. It was sunny that day and standing on the highest point of the wall, we could clearly see far distance. The wall snaked its way upon rugged hills overgrown with shrubs and bush and got very steep at some parts of the wall with loose stones and bricks all over the path. There were times we had to stop to get some rest to continue our trek up there. Other times we kept ourselves busy snapping amazing photos of the snaking wall and the spectacular countryside surrounding the wall. Moreover, Paul had filled us a lot of history about the wall, which made our trek on the wall more fun and enjoyable. Overall, it was really a memorable day trip we did in Beijing!

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!

One Day Jinshanling Excursion

Last Saturday, with my father and mother, we explored the legendary Jinshanling Great Wall. Booking this tour is the dream of my father, because he held many interests in this Great Wall section. I liked the tour guide very much. She offered considerate service on the whole journey, explaining sightseeing all the time, informative and responsible.

Jinshanling Great Wall

Jinshanling Great Wall is the most wild and original section among Beijing Great Wall sections. We got up earlier on the morning. After enjoying the breakfast, we were picked up and transfer to the Beijing suburb area. Journey is very long. We just enjoyed the cozy environment appreciating the breathtaking landscapes outside. About three hours driving, we arrived at the foot of Jinshanling Great Wall. Tourists here are not too crowded. After seeing the scene, we became exciting. For the tranquil environment, I really want to sing a song. My father and mother took out the camera taking some pictures with the surrounded. Perhaps, it is the summer season when everything is reaching the blossoming.

Following my father, we stepped on the Great Wall. The route is very easy to pass, loads of ruined sections with ruined bricks. There are almost no complete Great Wall buildings in the land just the grasses and destroyed bricks. Sceneries here are breathtaking with fresh air. Under the cool breeze, everything showed more vigorous. There are many children running in this road, laughing and playing. Sometimes, there will be several birds flying away singing adding much vigorous tastes to this old section. The mountain this Great Wall relied is not too elegant that I could see clearly the residences houses far distance. Sometimes, I could see the local framers walking pass by. We choose one land for sitting down appreciating the blue sky and white cloud. The watchtower is just located beside without roof. It showed so sophisticated that we took a lot of pictures. The bricks built on it have presented grey colors. I thought they are doing their best to support this world wonder. Tourists coming here are more and more. This Great Wall section is also becoming more and more alive. For me, I just mixed into my mind for the Great Wall background and history. Drinking water, we walked on, leisurely.

After this tour is finished, we gave all my thanks to our tour guide. We really tasted a lot and widened vision. No forced shopping tour is just here.
