Alan Morris on the Great Wall of China.

  As a small boy, I was fascinated by China & always wanted to visit China. One of the things I wanted to do if I visited China was to walk a section of the Great Wall of China.

After speaking to my doctor, who told me that if I wanted to go to the Great Wall of China, I needed to do it sooner rather than later, I booked a   tour of China. This tour of China was fantastic & my visit to the Great Wall of China really was a great experience & one I can recommend to anyone.

We were taken to the base of the Great Wall at Mutianyu. To get to the wall, we went on a cable car that ran from the parking area at the base to the top of the wall. Once at the top of the wall, we were given time to explore on our own before meeting again at the base. I did manage to walk a fair distance with the two girls I was with, Mel & Tracy. The view from the top was amazing.

I will say that the section I visited was very steep & is not for the faint-hearted. There was one section at the first tower that was so steep that I went down on my bum. I felt very foolish until I realised that I wasn't the only one doing it & that some people didn't do it & just looked at the wall from the first tower.
