As walls goes the Great Wall of China is probably the best known in the world, being the biggest in the world. So big, it can famously been seen from space. After hearing so much about the wall, it is amazing to be stood on it. You can stand and see ribbons of wall flowing over the undulating landscape beyond and behind. The wall does not run in a completely straight line and is broken up by different towers to explore and archways to cross under, revealing different snapshots of the wall beyond as you progress through.
I travelled from Beijing in September 2013 to see Mutianyu Great Wall. I took the cable car so that I could spend more time walking along the wall rather than spending time getting to it.
As well as seeing the grandeur of the wall, I managed to walk far enough to come to a part of the wall that was disintergrating which is a view of the wall that I had never seen before.When not gazing at the wall itself there is the, surrounding hills to look at.
