Amazing Great wall
Climb up!

Beijing Olympic.

*Location : Beijing, China

*Occasion : Great wall of China. It was THE purpose of the trip. It was right before the Olympic started. Thought I should visit before Olympic, when it’s still cheaper. It was winter and not very clear day.  I didn’t get to see the whole silhouette of Great wall like I expected, but it was breathe taking anyhow. I used a film camera for a change! 🙂

Wow, the effort of built this thing.. There’s a horrific story of slaves who died while working here, I don’t know you know it or not.. that made me felt so bad but appreciated their effort. They’d been suffered but at least we have a chance to see this wonderful historical monument.

Some of the hills were unbelievable stiff. How could they fight here?  We never know…

I only went to one part of the wall, but some day hopefully see other side of the wall-less people. 🙂

  1. Nice photos, Juno!
    That’s still a place I wanna go to! I’ve read several posts already, that you can sleep on the wall in sleeping bags. That sounds cool! But looking at your pics… I guess it wouldn’t be so cool for you. There is snow and I guess it would have been too cold! 😉

    1. Oh you know what? It’s easily one of the coldest day!! It was snowing the day before and a day after. Freezing! Beijing is way colder than Seoul. Oh my.. Go there in Summer, and make sure bring a high quality sleeping bag!!! 😀 I want to do it to though… hehe

  2. I loved the great wall we went in summer and when people were completing a marathon but I want to go back in winter, I think it will look spectacular with snow 🙂

  3. Wowow gorgeous photos Juno – especially love the first one! I’m TERRIFIED of heights so I doubt I’ll visit the Wall (it genuinely doesn’t interest me that much) but I’ll certainly look at all the beautiful shots that are taken of it 🙂

  4. There are many different walls from different eras in different states. Would make for an interesting tour in and of itself. Badaling and Mutianyu are the most-heavily visited, being the closest to Beijing, so are the most commercialized. If you go to Jinshanling in winter, you won’t see many people at all. A recommended hike is between Simatai and Jinshanling, which is a day trip out of Beijing.
