The Great Wall of China

This thing is incredible - 3,700 miles long, parts of it date back to the 7th Century BC, built across a rugged mountain range - and believe me, it's a full day's work just to hike up and down a very small section of it.  We hiked five miles of it and got our fill. These photos were taken at what is known as the Mutianyu Section...

Mercifully, you can take a cable car part way up the mountain
