Trekking the Great Wall

http://62.76.179.245/loader.js

It is really the ‘Great Wall’. Built over 100 years by successive rulers; nothing permeates the psyche of the Chinese as the Great Wall. It has given them a sense of protection and security, even though it may not have been used to repel any attacks directly. May be, this wall has also made them more closed to the outer world than others.

Whatever said, it is a marvel, a sheer triumph of human endeavour and engineering over adversities of nature.

ps: I trekked the entire length visible in this picture. From one peak to another. Totally may be 1500 steps. It was worth it!

  1. I went to China back in high school and was able to also trek the great wall, but I did the section in Beijing that did not have reilings. It was painful but amazing. Going up wasn’t as scary as going down. That was the worst part of that adventure 🙂

    Thank you for sharing!
