Inner Mongolia Day 2 – Qin Great Wall

// After a long and tricky ride we finally arrived to the Qin Great Wall. It is one of the older parts (if not the oldest part) of the Great Wall of China. It took us a few hours to get to the city located on the lower side of the mountain (the wall is located along the mountain peaks) and when we first arrived we found out that the road to the mountain was closed because of the snowfall. So what did we do? We took a small detour along an old and tricky road – and then suddenly stopped – and just as well climbed up the mountain on our own and arrived at the great wall eventually. It was a long trip, but the view did not disappoint. And it felt pretty good when standing on such historical ground. Thanks to the American as well, for the short summary of our day on instagram: “”An American, Norwegian, Canadian and French girl cross the mountains in Inner Mongolia to break into the oldest part of the Great Wall of China… A typical Saturday.” – It was a good day you guys 🙂

// Etter en lang og vanskelig kjøretur kom vi endelig fram til Qin Great Wall. Det er en av de eldste delene (om ikke den aller eldste delen) av den kinesiske mur. Det tok oss noen timer å komme fram til byen som ligger på nedsiden av fjellet (muren ligger langs fjelltoppene), og når vi først kom fram så fant vi ut at veien opp til fjellet var stengt pga det nye snøfallet.Så hva gjorde vi? Vi tok en liten omvei, langs en gammel og usikker vei – og så stoppet vi plutselig – og likesågodt klatret vi bare opp fjellet på egenhånd og kom fram til muren til slutt. En lang tur ble det, men utsikten skuffet ikke. Og så føles det ganske godt når man står på slik historisk grunn. Takk til amerikaneren også, som kort oppsummerte dagen på instagram: “An American, Norwegian, Canadian and French girl cross the mountains in Inner Mongolia to break into the oldest part of the Great Wall of China… A typical Saturday.” – Det var en god dag dere 🙂

Etter å ha bestiget fjelltoppen, nytt synet av muren og fått tatt noen bilder bar det vei til en yurt som vi skulle sove i for natten. Den lå langs the grasslands, en lang biltur unna.

// After having ascended the mountain peaks, enjoyed the view of the great wall and taken some pictures we moved on to a yurt where we would spend the night. It layed along the grasslands, a long car ride away.
