The Great Wall of Mutianyu
The Great Wall of Mutianyu is a must-see for any visitor to China. The wall is over 2,000 years old and stretches for over 5,000 miles. The wall was built to protect the Chinese Empire from invasions by the Mongols and other nomadic tribes. The Great Wall of Mutianyu is one of the most popular sections of the wall to visit, due to its beautiful scenery and well-preserved architecture.
I got lucky on the last photo – it’s an aerial shot of the Great Wall as we were flying from Beijing to Harbin.
The Great Wall of Mutianyu is definitely a bucket list item. The views are incredible, the history is fascinating, and it’s a great workout. Just be sure to go on a clear day, wear comfortable shoes, and bring plenty of water.
Visiting The Great Wall of China has always been a lifelong dream for the two of us! It was a surreal experience and something we will never forget. It was definitely the highlight of our first trip to China!
