The Great Wall and Beijing

The hike route from the wilds of the wall into the restored section. Legend says it would take you 18 month to hike the entire length of the wall. Interesting fact: The Great Wall is not a continuos structure, but is broken up into many portions.


Locals set up “toll” booths along portions of the wall to try and squeeze a buck from you. They can also be helpful in supplying cold water.


Hiking in the wilds on the wall. Almost nobody else but us and our guide.
