Default China's Great Wall ;)

The enormity of the project: Bottom up





Top down:




Sideway: The width of the wall is designed to carry and army with a row of one horseman and four soldiers side by side. It's quite steep in lot of sections and not designed for tourists (i.e. you really need to be top-shaped to walk/climb between towers)

Their all good but the last one is great. Never seen the wall from that angle. Great composition.

The Great Wall is formidable structure with high and thick walls to keep out the invading nomads from the North. This eastern end of the wall is more scenic than the western end which is located in Xinjiang which I visited last year during the Silk Road Tour. My journey to the Great Wall was thus completed. Mao Tse Dong wrote something on the Great Wall, it went like this " You are not a man until you step foot on the Great Wall!". So You and I are now officially a man according to Chairman Mao.
