Great Wall Trip Nov 06, 2014
Nature can always make us feel relaxed and happy. Escaping from the bustling city, we went to the Watertown (Gubei-Shuizhen) and Great Wall (Simatai) on 28th October. The Watertown is a small ancient town surrounded by small mountains, with a river flowing right through the town. It’s so beautiful and quiet, and we enjoyed it a lot.
After wandering around the Watertown, we went to visit the Great wall. It’s located in the mountains, which are quite close to the Watertown. It was really tough to climb the stairs which are narrow and steep. But we felt extremely happy each time we arrived at a tower. The scenery was so splendid when we looked down from the Great Wall. Autumn makes the mountains look beautiful because the trees turn red and the Great Wall is just like a dragon flying upon the mountains. After about two hours, we arrived at the final tower. Everyone was exhausted but full of joy. This will be one of our unforgettable trips.
