We never made a bucket list, but if we did, a climb up the Great Wall of China would definitely be on it. Maybe we should start writing one for the future? Then a trip to Zhangjiajie would be on top of this list for sure (look it up, what an incredibly mesmerizing landscape!). Now back to the Great Wall. What can we say about it? It was steep, exhausting, but absolutely amazing! We took a cable car up at the Mutianyu section and after a long walk we took a handcar back down, which was so much fun! The area was well restored, but we did manage to go on a non restored part of the wall. You know, to have a more authentic experience. We were very lucky because this Mutianyu section wasn’t crowded at all, which was also partly due to the time of the year. The advantage of visiting the Great Wall (or China in general) in November is that it’s less crowded. However, the downside is that it’s maybe the least beautiful season to see the landscape around the wall. I would love to visit it another time when the scenery is more colorful. Either way, it was one of the most amazing experiences in my life ever.
