Did a lot of research and I was not in the mood to go to the Betaling Side of the Wall where hundreds and thousands of tourists go everyday to see The Great Wall.
So after my research I got a spot where they say it is difficult to get to… Because of public transport and minibuses… So lets do it!! Want to take pictures of The Wall and not The Wall with tourists!
Woke up at 5am to catch the first bus at 7am. Had a nice shower, ate some noodles for energy and headed to the Metro Station. I arrived at the bus station at 6:45 and I saw 3 more tourists so we started talking and got on the bus. The 4 of us were heading in the same direction and I decided to go with them to even a more remote part of the Wall!
We got off the bus a bit early and bargained the minibus driver down from 240 to 120, and was on our way again for another hour to The Wall.
Had many good laughs with the non speaking minibus driver and then there it was…. In all its glory!!! The Great Wall of China!!!!
We definitely made the correct decision to visit this part of the Wall.. 2 other tourists was on the first part and after 30 minutes… Its was just the 4 of us for 3 hours!!! Amazing!!!
The walk was about 8km on the Wall… Straight, high inclines and declines, good Wall, Bad and broken Wall… Was the perfect way to see and experience this amazing Wonder of the World!!
