The Great Wall at Shanhaiguan





Between the ocean and the hills lies a flat coastal plain that’s perhaps 10 kilometers wide. At the end of the plain, the wall again climbs steeply into the hills that separate the north China plain from inner Mongolia, and Manchuria. These shots are various views of the first stretch of Wall climbing into the hills. As you can see, it’s pretty darn steep!

    Well done ! You are so brave and adventurous! These are great pictures of the Great Wall! Which reminds me… I should go through my India pictures and post some. Having read this I thought it was rather informative. I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it! In return, I also found a great blog of Great Wall travel tips, I’d love to share it here with you and for future travelers. http://www.wildgreatwall.com/which-part-of-the-great-wall-is-the-best-to-visit/
