The Great Wall in Winter

CHINA TOUR AND ADVENTURE

We’ll take you from ancient to modern China!

We all have seen what the Great Wall looks like when the weather is nice, especially in summer. But, I’m sure only few of US have conquered this world wonder when it’s covered in snow.

The Great Wall in winter in slippery; thus, dangerous to trek. Even if you try, you won’t go that far. That’s why I only have taken few photos from our daring climb. It’s cold and in steep threads, you’ll be wriggling on all fours. Once you slip, you’re adventurous life ends.

We tried trekking one snowy day and we all ended up in less than 100┬ámeters. Our cheap gloves were no match to the nasty winter breeze. Our young knees wobbled like that of a septuagenarian’s and our jaws were half-frozen like we won’t be able to talk forever.

These photos were taken at Huanghuacheng Great Wall in winter of 2009.

    The first pic is breathtaking.
    Been to the Great Wall in Badaling but boy, it’s so crowded in October holiday! We were never warned about it. My impression about the Great wall was shattered and my memories about it is not that impressive because of the crowd.
