Day 5 - Great wall climb
I have been looking forward to today. Today i do the great wall climb. After a 4 hour bus ride we arrived. Today was also really hot. Having put on my hat i was on my way. I thought i was in trouble as soon as i started as we had to climb a pretty steep set of stairs to get to the wall itself, but thankfully i got used to it and was all good.
We had to walk "30 lookout". This is basially a tower every 500 yoards. Doesnt sound much but when its not a flat surface its pretty menacing! Totalling 10km.
The wall ranged from relatively easy walking to literally climbing up steps. as a matter if fact, at the end of the walk my feet were fine, but i managed to get a blister on my index finger on my right hand. Pretty random!
Not that im bragging or anything but i did manage to reach the finish line first. Taking about 4 hours, with several stops inbetween.
To get to the hotel, which was next to the great wall by a beautiful lake, i took a zip line to the bottom. That was good fun.
Just spent thr rest of the night looking at the scenerary whilst having dinner outdoors and enjoy a few drink after a hard but very rewarding day.
