One of my lifelong dreams was met today!
The Wall, one of the greatest structures built by humans was built over two millennia, but the most extensive and best preserved sections were built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Originally built as fortification against neighboring Chinese kingdoms, the “10,000 Li-long Wall” (translation of the wall’s name in Chinese), is 5,500 miles long.
We visited the Juyongguan section which slopes on both sides of the Juyongguan Pass. It is known as one of the eight famous scenic spots and it strategically located and difficult to access. We can attest to that!!! It was vertical!
