Hemp Village to Gubeikou Great Wall Hike, 2016/01/17
We were out for a hike just after the first snow of the new year – see photos of snow on the Gubeikou Great Wall.
We were out for a hike just after the first snow of the new year, and to see the Great Wall covered in snow is always a fine sight. You missed it? Have a look at the photos instead!
We started out at Hemp Village, following a flat road up into the hills. A good way to warm up in cold weather.
The trail took us further into the hills, and higher up. From the hill tops we could see the nearby mountain ranges and Great Wall off in the distance, including 24-Eyes Tower, the tall tower where we’d climb on to the wall.
After hiking through farmland and valleys we climbed up to 24-Eyes Tower, the highest in the area. From there, we hiked the wall all the way down to Gubeikou Village.
