Beijing – The Great Wall
(See previous post, click here)
The wall… no, not the one mentioned in the news these days. THIS wall, built in the 5th century before common era was once called a wonder of the world. Some even made the absurd claim that you can see it on the moon (spoiler alert, you can’t!) More precisely, they are walls – a series of fortifications the dynasties of China built to guard against nomadic raids.
These walls are now a national treasure and a must see for tourists. And a challenging hike if you enjoy a trek on the mountain on some 600 year old large stairs.
Here, we concluded our sight seeing portion of our Beijing trip. Hope you have enjoyed these posts.
