World Wonders Exploration

I do not know why I house so many interests in Chinese ancient times and rooted culture. My father ever told me that if I want to have a deep understanding about Chinese ancient culture, Great Wall will be the must-see. So, last week, I booked the 2 days Great Wall tour, really exciting and memorable. With my girlfriend, we enjoyed two days on Great Wall and learnt a lot!

Mutianyu Great Wall

First attraction is Mutianyu Great Wall. On the way to the destination, my girl friend and I, we imagined and thought its appearance. First time hiking Chinese Great Wall, really exciting. One arrived at this Mutianyu, we were all influenced by the green area. Yes, this Great Wall is decorated with large scale forests. We cannot see the Great Wall building clearly but impressed by the tranquil environment and charming sceneries. It is the early autumn period that all the plants still reach the utmost vigorous appearance. The building construction of Mutianyu Great Wall is complex than the book said. The watchtowers are designed very complex. We should walk down to enter. The darkness space led us walk into ancient times, really. Only the place that the window decorated is bright. From the delicate watchtower, appreciated the outside, surprisingly, the whole sceneries poured into my vision.

Jinshanling Great Wall

Compared to Mutianyu, Jinshanling Great Wall showed much more sophisticated. I liked it very much. It was completely keeping the original appearance without any decoration. Almost all the sections are ruined down. From the bricks, we can read the history prints. We start our hiking from the east section. Tourists here are less than Mutiany. We packed the bag hiking for the west direction. Road is very easy to pass through. Sometimes we just sited on the earth to appreciate the sceneries surrounded. There was no disturbing. All my minds were vacant. At that time, I really want the time stopped. Getting close to the west section, we arrived at the Gubeikou Great Wall. It showed us another typical appearance. Once walked further, the steps became steep and dangerous. We helped each other, counted the watchtowers we have passed through. Proud feeling started to dance in our heart.

Now, when I see the pictures I took in the Great Wall, all my minds all run to China. It will be the most important lesson that I learnt in China world wonders!

Trek all the Way to Mutianyu Great Wall

Last week, together with my friend Joe, we visited the Great Wall at Mutianyu section with our guide Lin. The section of the wall is not off the beaten path but it is less crowded than Badaling, so after consulting with the trip advisor of Beijinglandscapes, we decided to head over there for a trek.

Mutianyu Great Wall

We only had half day to explore the wall and enjoy the trek on the wall, so we made an early start that day. We met at our hotel and jumped on a car with Lin and hit the road to Mutianyu. The ride was pleasant and did not take much longer than we thought. We made it to the foothill of the wall at about 8:30 and found our way to the cable car station with Lin the second we got off the car. The cable car is more like a chair lift and the ride up the wall was way more fun than we expected. On the chair, we saw the wall from above for the first time and the sight of the wall snaking all over the hill was just incredible. The surrounding countryside was covered by greenery and it was really overwhelming! The chair ride was short and soon we were landed on the wall. Had no idea the wall would be that huge and solid and so excited to stand on the wall. We were both like kids when we started to trek along the wall with Lin. We both felt dizzy walking from one side of the wall to the other, taking in the views and snapping photos. The scenery was breathtaking and completely dazzled us with its beauty.

It was a sunny day and the mountain air was quite crisp when we first got on the wall. But after an hour of trek on the wall, it got pretty warm and we soon got sweaty and puffing all the time and had to take some rest at some points on the wall. Lin filled us in plenty of history about the wall. The history made our trek on the wall more fun and enjoyable. After regaining our strength and not wanting to waste any time, we trekked and puffed the rest of the path. When it was time to get down the wall, we also grabbed a tobogon ride. The slide was fun too, running all the way down the hillside. Later we headed back to the city with Lin.

Overall, we really spent fun-filled half day exploring the wall in Beijing. Best Chinese ever!

Just Love Mutianyu Great Wall

To our surprise, we explored Mutianyu Great Wall saving so much. There is no shopping stop in the whole journey. Really glad we saved a lot of money and time!

Mutianyu Great Wall

For so many years, I contributed myself in the work, really tired and boring. Under the suggestion of my friend, I booked this tour. Company service is very considerate that I was arranged well. On the second day, I got up early and waited for the tour guide. After breakfast, I came out of the hotel and saw the bus and tour guide. Getting on the bus, I saw many tourists who gave me warm greeting. On the whole journey, we chatted with each other with fluent English from Chinese history to Chinese culture. This bus is full of laughing.

Once arrived at the destination, we were ordered to getting off in order. Wow, so charming and fresh! The whole area is covered by large scale green trees, very breathtaking! Although it the early autumn, I can feel the local hot temperature, perhaps because of the long journey. For the luxuriant trees and forests, the magnificent Great Wall appeared little. After sharing some tips, we started our hiking journey. We helped each other, passing through the beginning wooden steps. The environment in the foot is very tranquil. We just felt we have been mixing into the forests world. About twenty minutes walking, we came to the Great Wall ground. So long and clean, hard and best preserved! Walking on the Great Wall, I suddenly arouse the ideas that I finally came to the word wonder. Everything here seemed to be doing their best to bring me back to the ancient times.

What I liked best is the beacon towers and the construction of these watchtowers. It is really hard to imagine how the ancient laborers carry these heavy bricks on the wall under the poor condition. Sitting on the ground, lying on the wall, I was stuck in the imagination. Sometimes, few birds flying away told us their happy feeling singing. When we were to arrive at the top, a mark writing the danger warning us! It is really dangerous passing through the steep steps.

Standing on the top enjoying the birds view, it is really a terrific enjoyment!
