It is my second visit to Beijing, and although I had been to the Great Wall before, I wanted to go there again. It’s an awesome structure and the view out there is just beautiful.
Did I mention that the view is beautiful? Mountains after mountains as far as one can see, the fresh air, the big sky….
There are several tourist spots to visit the Great Wall. Some are busier than others due to ease of access. We went to Simatei. It was quiet and there weren’t many people about.
It’s also great for exercise – we walked up and up for about 3 hours
There are food, drinks and souvenirs stalls along the way
We stopped often to enjoy the view, and to take some photos. But we also stopped because we ran out of breath…
Meet a resident of the Great Wall
On the way down, we took the easy way out. Some people opted for the flying fox.
