Trekking the Great Wall

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!
