Best Way to See the Great Wall

Hey guys say we are off on our Great Wall adventure super excited about this. Because it’s a part of the Great Wall that tourists don’t really go to, and we will be staying there overnight with just a local family in their home. But there’s some confusion as to how to get to this place it was really far outside of the city, and we’re taking I don’t know buses metros trains. So we’re trying to figure out the last details here step one took the metro, and now we are going to get a train from there we’re going to do something else, and then we’ll get there we could have had them pick us up in the city. But we just like to do things the hard way.

So we got to the train station, and it’s crazy they want to try this 1800 for a train ticket that we already know cost six quad there just outright telling us 1800, and then they went down to 600 it cost six flies six we know how much it is we know No how much does he say 600 no. So we just went a like a few feet away from where they were telling us this, and we got the ticket, and it literally says on the side fix cry, and they also tell us that the trains not running today it said if it is running it’s not running until 9 9 p.m. it’s running in an hour. But then it’s so hilarious. Because it sounds awful. But these guys are actually like.

So funny they’re actually. So friendly, and you say what no, and they’re like laughing -, and it’s just honestly like a big part he wants to sell his tickets for 600 quite okay, and he was about it for 600 o’clock, and he’s laughing -. So was it about horror, and now, and now we’re all did you picture okay family photo okay like now people are reading in other places you pay more to sit in the response rate. But here the fare is all the same. So whoever runs through training, and is like most aggressive first, and runs here gets all the first class feet. So papi, and i just kind of went with it, and ran, and we managed to get Jordan like freaking out okay we have arrived Comanche, and our stop reached our destination this is where we are staying pretty simple room pretty much in the middle of nowhere definitely not a touristy area we’re the only ones here they don’t speak English. So we’re not really sure what’s going on now started our trek to the Great Wall the weather right now is absolutely beautiful the skies are blue mountains surrounding us there is this old woman that is our guide.

So excited to get up there you can see it up ahead all around us as we’re going along the woman that is leading us is just grabbing things off of bushes, and trees then just getting stuff to eat little snacks she gave us this one I don’t know what it was maybe a barrier fruit tastes like a sour pear maybe I think we’re about halfway these views we have gotten up to the first part of the wall that we’re going to be going on today there is nobody here we saw nobody coming up here, and the wall is a bit overgrown the mountain views from here are just incredible and, I’m actually standing on the wall right now. So crazy now in one of the towers on the wall, and this is unbelievable there’s poppy this is so amazing we just get to go wherever we want there is no really signs or gates or anything. Because again this isn’t a tourist part of the wall people don’t come here these fears are absolutely incredible we’re literally hiking on the wall not just to the wall which is awesome I mean we’re hiking on the wall right now that’s that’s just insane loving it up here as you guys can see now the wall here in this portion is completely overgrown, and it’s pretty cool it just feels really wild obviously I can already tell from other parts of the wall that people don’t come here ever this is like Indiana Jones in an ancient Orange City ancient ruins wall can’t get over these views everywhere is absolutely spectacular, and all the way down just sitting here literally on the Great Wall of China no railings no guardrails anywhere here no safety signs no people pretty sure that you would not be able to do this in the touristy areas very well on some points of the wall you really get the scale of this structure it’s just incredible everyone knows that the wall is extremely long. But to see it for yourself stretching into the distance as far as you can see disappearing into the horizon in these insane mountains with this view is just definitely a bucket list item that you guys just have to see for yourself, and this tour that poppy, and I did today was not expensive at all, I’m gonna put all the details farther on in the post. Because this is just the best everybody should do this now sitting down to have dinner that this couple has prepared for us sorry we’ve actually moved inside. Because I got a cold she keeps me more food all of this food that she’s bringing us right now it is made fresh with ingredients from their property their farm here which is pretty cool how’d our dinner, and it’s really cold here.

So poppy, and I are just like bundled up in the blankets no she closed the door yeah let’s do that who’s gonna get up, and have their cold the cold floor on their feet what have you never heard of nose goes no definitely 100% means you have to do it that’s a made-up things I’ve got a made-up thing I hope this goes on. Because everyone’s been looking you’re like a fool you so much to learn my group never seen TV never seen movies it’s never seeing a computer. So I don’t know some of these things oh well we have woken up here on the great wall our room faces the wall it was a cold night it is very cold here yeah really really cold. So we were just all in the blankets all night I think we are going to have breakfast hopefully some coffee how did you sleep puppy coldly have a cup science the morning time these people have the cutest beautiful dog ever he’s like a walking little lion he’s asleep right now. But I really wanted to show him to you he’s actually snoring. So cute finished our Great Wall adventure, and we’re heading back to Beijing now an amazing experience everybody always says that when they go to the wall there’s no pictures that they get without any people in them it’s super crowded all these tourists when we were on the wall how many people did we see nobody just the woman that was taking us up the wall we were hiking for I think four to five hours, and just along the wall, and just like kept going to more cool buildings, and more cool like every new place that we went it’s like every every time I looked at poppy she was looking this epic locations like poppy have to take a picture of you it was just like a constant like oh my god we just love it here, and we think that anybody going to the great wall should do this, and you not go to the touristy part. So we’re not sponsored by the company at all they don’t even know they don’t even speak English yeah they ain’t no idea who we are yeah why have we been walking around with cameras this whole time yeah they think we’re a little we just honestly love it.

So this place is called Great Wall fresh, and that name is. Because again everything is fresh that they feed you everything is just from their garden, and their little farm here, and it’s surprisingly cheap definitely very very cool, and also here you’re staying with the local family I know it’s a little difficult that they don’t speak English, and you can’t really communicate that well. But it’s all just part of the adventure like this is genuine experience these people actually live here wake up seeing the wall every morning just like we did definitely highly highly recommend this place to you guys, and hopefully bring this couple some extra business all right we’re gonna go back to Beijing hope that some of you guys can come here bye.
