Great Wall Of China Winter

December 14, 2013 by  

Great Wall Of China Winter, Hiked 3 sections of the Great Wall in winter. We did it without any guides after studying blogs and posts by fellow hikers. All these sections are different. From the unrestored Gubeikou Great Wall where we were the only people around, to the wonderful Jinshanling Great Wall where the climb is steep and every direction gives you good photo opportunities, to the restored Mutianyu Great Wall where we hiked in heavy snowfall.

Stayed at local farmhouses on both nights. Ate local meals and hitched rides to nearby bath houses because the homes have no bathrooms! Temperature ranged from -5 deg C (day) to -12 deg C (night). Winter daybreak is at 7am. Sky becomes dark by 5pm. You have only 10 hrs of daylight, so plan your travelling and hiking schedules carefully!!

This once-in-a-lifetime experience was captured on video and we would like to share it with you. The feelings just can’t be described. You need to experience it first hand.
