-Hiking on the Great Wall

Our Hiking Trip on the Great Wall 06

Participants: Broadreach US Group
Number: 12
Date: 9th June - 11th June 06

Day 1 - 9th June 06 from (Gubeikou to Jinshanlin 5 hours)

Today we hiked on a secluded part of The Great Wall. The bus ride out to the wall was filled with telling stories and experiences and time flew by really quickly. We started the hike and after a short time started lunch. Twenty minutes after lunch, we heard thunderstorms and it started to rain. The views were breath-taking and they motivated us to push on. Our hike lasted a good hour after lunch until the trail turned away from the wall and onto a path through the wilderness. We re-emerged at the wall, one hour later and soaking wet. The hike continued on the wall until we reached our endpoint (a small town). We were greeted with a dinner and a chance to rest our feet. It was a relief to be finally out of the rain. Because of the continuing lightning, we agreed to change our plans to sleep on a tower on the wall and just sleep at a guesthouse instead. We spent the rest of the night playing games and catching up on much needed sleep

Day 2 - 10th June 06 (Jinshanlin to Simatai-4 hours)

After hiking through the rain we decided it would be best to sleep at a local hotel rather than on The Great Wall. After spending the night at the hotel we retuned to the family with which we had dinner, for breakfast. There we were able to spend time with some locals. After breakfast we hiked around four hours, both on and off the great wall. After the hike we dined at a local restaurant and then took a three hour bus ride back to the hotel in Beijing. There we quickly checked into the rooms, took showers, and changed for the acrobat show later that evening. Before the acrobat show we ate at a local seafood restaurant. Following, we attended the acrobat show to see people of all ages doing flips, tricks, balancing many people on one bike and much more. After this long day we went back to the hotel for a nice rest.
