P1060433This part of the wall is totally not restored, we almost had the wall to ourselves.

P1060432The views certainly got better as we went higher.

P1060438Descending was pretty tough because of the loose sands and gravels. We were literally sliding sometimes.

  1. Wow, these photos are very nice and attractive. These places are so famous in China. Most of the great sights and tourist places are located in and around Beijing like The Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, national museum and the Forbidden City. Now many tourists come to china to enjoy these things. Recently I had gone to China with my wife. We stayed and travelled there one week by help of Greatwall Trekclub.
