"Snow on the Mutinyu Great Wall" Great Wall of China - Mutianyu Tip by tuff

Great Wall of China - Mutianyu, Beijing: 91 reviews and 240 photos

It was early in the morning and it was still snowing, I can only see about 100 feet in any direction. I did not see the wall which I imagined that extends for miles and miles along the ridges of the mountains as far as my eyes can see. I did not see the great views at the horizon that the Ming Dynasty soldiers see while they were standing guard; protecting this great nation from outsiders. However, I did share the cold weather; as well as I have the entire great wall to myself feeling with the soldiers. Sure this part of the wall is less touristy and especially this early in the morning and with the overnight snow decorated this Great Wall, it’s so quite, so beautiful and peaceful. Was I lucky to pick a day like this to go to the Wall?
