The Great Wall of China is about 1.5 hours from Beijing, China. Who ever go visit Beijing have to stop by this beautiful Great wall of the world. The stairs are very steep especially when you go in the Winter time. The snow make the stairs very slippery too. I felt down twice when tried to climb up. Be prepared to be harassed by those selling souvenirs. you need to bring the water with you else you have to end up buying the water from the street selling by the local people there. Once you get to the very top part you feel like the winner.
