Truly Amazing Great Wall, No Shopping Stops

I am a fan of Chinese Great Wall buildings. Last year, I explored Badaling Great Wall and Mutianyu Great Wall, very exciting and happy. I learnt a lot from these two buildings. Their experiences, features and elegance all left me a deep impression. At that time, because of the far distance of Jinshanling, I did not explore it. But, I heard it is a very typical building with wild features and original appearance. Under the suggestion of my friend, I booked this tour.

Jinshaning Great Wall

On the departure day, tour guide picked us from the hotel. At that time, we met each other and gave the warm greeting to each other. She is a girl who is very informative. On the whole journey to Jinshanling Great Wall, we chatted and communicated about Chinese history and the top highlights. To her surprised, we all housed many interests to Chinese history. About three hours driving, we arrived at Jinshanling Great Wall. With all the green plants reached the blossom, we become more exciting. We took out the food and drinks starting our Jinshanling Great Wall hiking journey. At the beginning, all the sceneries are not so clear in my eyes. What appeared in my vision are just the isolate mountains and ruined Great Wall buildings. Hiking journey is very fluent without spending too much labor. Even some sections are the soil ground with ruined bricks.

After hiking about twenty minutes, we are all shocked. We could clearly saw the mountains and sections far distance. The watchtowers are destroyed by the long history without roof. Only the wild grasses accompanied with it. We stood on the wall building, shouted to the far distance.  Typical tranquility sends out the echo clearly. I liked the environment very much, getting rid of the bustle life and busy downtown area. We communicated with each other the whole journey. Sitting on the ground, I always felt I was situating in Chinese ancient times. Touching the wall, cold and hard with cracks make me record the building process. We made a lot of friends on the way. Listening to them telling the stories of this building, from them, I got to know that Gubeikou Great Wall is nears around. Stepping on the top point, the whole sceneries formed a picture running into my camera.

I will store the exciting moment forever!

Terrific Jinshanling Great Wall Hiking

My family and I, we all the fans of Beijing highlights and have already visited most of Beijing attractions like Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, as well as Badaling Great Wall. Two years ago, I have heard Jinshanling Great Wall is a typical building. So, this time, my mother and I, we decided to explore it.

Jinshanling Great Wall

Because Jinshanling Great Wall is very far away from Beijing center, we need get up earlier. Tour guide is a considerate girl who warned us all the time. The car is in well-condition. We sited inside enjoying the cozy environment and the charming sceneries along the journey. About 3 hours driving, we arrived at the destination. Tourists here are less than I expected. We started our exciting hiking journey. To my surprised is that the road is too uneven with soil. Under the bright sunlight, the grasses and wild flowers here showed unique vigorous and colorful. I had to say it is truly a wild Great Wall building housing many mysterious traditional tastes and original features. The bricks in some section have been broke down changing into the powders. Touching the Great Wall, I felt I have gone back to Chinese ancient times.

We went on our hiking journey without spending much labor. The roof of the watchtowers has been disappeared. The green grasses are full of each corner. It showed more sophisticated and lonely. Suddenly, I found I have been mixed into this building, its tastes, original features and the culture it housed. It is very suitable for camp. I imagined and thought… We took a lot of pictures from different views. After stepping on the top, we enjoyed a short relaxed. Sceneries here are unexpected beautiful and charming. We appreciated and looked around. The plants on the wall become the most vigorous guard.

Highly recommended Jinshanling Great Wall tour! It is truly a terrific building section!

Lifetime Hiking Experience in Beijing

Last week, I spent two days exploring the Great Wall at Jinshanling section. I did some hiking and serious sightseeing over those two days over there. It was fun and incredible. I really enjoyed every minute of it!

Jinshanling Great Wall

On the first day, I was picked up in the afternoon and taken to the destination on a van with my tour guide. The ride over there was kind of fun as my tour guide filled me in some history and stories about the Great Wall. She was very funny and knowledgeable. I could tell by the way she talked with me that she was very experienced too. After we arrived at Jinshanling, my tour guide led me up the wall and we started hiking up the western part of Jinshanling as planned. The Great Wall snaked upon the rugged ridge of the mountain, making the sight very impressive and marvelous to the eyes. The wall also stretched as far as the eyes could see and way into the horizon. My trekking on the wall was fun and very challenging too as some parts of the paths were crumbled and not restored. Sometimes the path got very steep, hard to get through, other times, the path very smooth and solid, easy to continue with my walking. While walking on the wall, I did not miss any chance to snap some fine photos. To be honest, great pictures spots were at every bend of the wall. All I needed to do was pick my favorite angle and snap away. The most incredible sight I saw on the wall was the sunset I caught right before we headed back. It totally took my breath away! At night I was arranged to crash at a farmer house.

On the next day, after I had my breakfast at the farm house, we headed for the eastern section of Jinshanling. This time, I did not rush to snap pictures but took my time to explore the wall. There were plenty of historical relics left on the wall. What interested me the most was the character-carved bricks. I was really excited to see them up close and personal. By the way, other structure on the wall was also very impressive, like the watch towers and beacon towers as well as some other relics. Though those towers and relics not in good condition, the sight of them was still breathtaking!

Overall, it was the best outdoor hiking I ever had while visiting China!
