Would you believe, this is the only man-made structure visible from space? Well, I think could be true because this enormous great wall stretches SO SO super wide!My eyes can't comprehend how wide it is when we reached the top!

Unfortunately, I'm not so into photography when we visited.So i'm sharing photos from my e66 nokia phone with added touches :) But the feeling of being able to climb one of the 7 Wonders of the Middle Age World is just so so awesome :) #grateful me

From the main Beijing city to Great Wall location, we have to ride a bus and the trip is like ~2hours i guess…I was never bored, love sight seeing ^_^

As how I understood it, the great wall stretch is divided into different walls, the famous one is the BADALING GREAT WALL. So from there, we had cable car for ~5-10min up to the Badaling wall observatory entrance.

Seems always a busy day in here ^_^ Lots of tourists and that includes us :)!

My gala partners!And believe me, it's freezing cold up there…Beijing is already 5C but up in the GreatWall is much much colder! grrrrr But we climbed the peak then we got ourselves a prize–a key chain with our names and date engraved on it, certifying we have climbed the GreatWall of China! :)

The stretch!^_^ Seems easy to stroll on?hahaha
