It must have been a little more than a year since I last visited Beijing and one of the wonders in the world, the Great Wall of China. But this time, I have visited a different section of the Great Wall which is the (居庸關)Ju Yong Guan. While making my way there, vivid memories of the Ba Da Ling flashed by me, reminding me of how fun it was to have visited that section the last time I was there. Great photography opportunities were plentiful there at the Ba Da Ling and I was so eager to have a share of another nice and unforgettable memories there at Ju Yong Guan!
Indeed, climbing the Great Wall of China is always never easy. It was not easy but I pushed myself on to reach the end of the section. I paced myself and I took small breaks while also giving myself excuses to have some pictures captured during my short rests. My strategy for this climb is to travel as light as possible, with only 5D II and 16-35mm f2.8L in my small sling bag, I was on my way to the end of the Ju Yong Guan section.
In my own opinion, Ju Yong Guan is not as magnificent as Ba Da Ling because referring to my last post of Ba Da Ling, it gave me a great view of the long stretch of the wall whereas Ju Yong Guan is more likely a straight up and back down, period. Anyhow, my recommendation shall go to Ba Da Ling where you can have a great time there if you have never been to anyone before.
