The Great Wall of China with “Beijing Hikers” incl. drone footage!


[Music] [Music] good morning and welcome to my vlog today I will be hiking with the Beijing hikers on the Great Wall from who buy co2 in Shandling I hope I didn’t butcher these words too much I’m very sorry if I did I’m gonna take you with me but since this is my first vlog in English let me have a quick word to my German audience good morn is a block you at mine English sign but as a tiny girl cries the me as a 42-year to see entrancing of stuff Maximus in Maya international for Fupa you can’t you only want a hit line shot enough to watch announcing it’s funny a no English fighter so I will continue in English now first of all I have to get this subway and get to the subway station where the meter point is so join me on that and catch when I’m there just a quick note I’ve never taken the subway system here in Beijing and it’s my first time here so if I can do it you can probably too [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] well that or super easy may be one of the most convenient software systems I’ve ever seen in the world so no problem and I’m way too early so I’ve got some time to scout out the meeting place and maybe do a quick coffee run so this seems to be the spot also super easy to find for the description on the Beijing hikers web page I will link below now looking for coffee I have 45 minutes to kill so let’s see no guys won’t be ready on the hike at that time one more chance there’s a Starbucks that also doesn’t look very open to me pickup point is that his Starbucks so finally some coffee welcome to our hike today today we got 15 people on the hike it’s not a big group either it’ll take like five to six hours to finish all the height spectrum you take care and we will go to a very problems Jean shopping is in every province [Music] so now it’s getting interesting after stop on the highway or money get collected and all the streets become there and we just stopped okay I just wanted to a little Pete they’re not dumping us here no honestly naturist really gorgeous outside I’m really looking forward to see where that is going to take place [Music] so we’re there an organization holds up to its promises they have rain ponchos hiking sticks water great snacks great guides it seems I’m really looking forward and I also saw a little piece of big war pump really fun [Music] there we go found someone [Music] all this is just gorgeous raised you and we had only at the first tower here you’re on the edge of the hill here they can see where for the first tower [Music] [Music] I almost don’t want to speak here because the place is so quiet especially compared to the downtown of Beijing this is just gorgeous maybe I’m repeating myself but yeah look for your own and it’s a little bit funny to speak English here because almost half of the people who are hiking with me how German and everybody is concerned about my Footwear but I’m confident good or lunar sandals [Music] [Music] one flat spot I’m sorry I forgot to talk English it’s just amazing unbelievable I mean obviously the wallets on the highest point where that the defense advantage but you also have the best view and the Sun comes out no no if I should be happy or sad about that I guess happy [Music] [Music] so no up to the highest point here the 24 I store it’s used to call 24 I store it goes before it to tell apart that 24 windows 6 on each side crap that guy’s flying a drone to get the footage [Music] as the siesta feel this is the 24-hour so I’m not really sure if I minute ago told you that in English or German pretty exhausting like up here but this is the highest point so it’s downwards from here on this yes it’s gorgeous that’s why I will try to capture this for you stop talking [Music] [Music] so now we went off the wall molls behind me not really like and we’re entering Spider Valley very hairy spider Valley okay I’m really scared now when I was studying the trees already tried to catch my camera [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] so we’re up on a way back out of spider fairy belly Vincey spider but again gorgeous look on the wall just amazing [Music] not upcoming because I just confirmed he usually has a lot of German see on the tour hey you gotta look back every now and then yeah it’s really amazing I’m missing I’m missing the superlative words like gorgeous amazing ridiculous out of it nothing prepares you for it yeah really really so guys if you really want to have the full experience you have to come yourself and it’s really worth it Beijing hikers put a link here below awesome here when I completely forgot the Sun came out as you probably already noticed on the way here we drove through the rain so we feared that we would have to walk you’re soaking wet well I’m still soaking wet but it’s nice to walk in the Sun and I better put my hat back on [Music] [Music] John how did you get there did you go down here okay so we reached little more than half time off the hike and I’m so amazed at these old Chinese guys that airconditioning built into their towers awesome I mean this is 500 years ago come on and Europe it took us quite a while to figure that out just kidding it’s very nice in here was pretty hot outside my all my clothes are dripping wet even my shoes and my head and everything but here this is nice maybe four five six degrees colder at least and an amazing view and I’m not even upstairs I’m not sure if I died going upstairs so if you never see this okay that’s pointless out I mean this is now on the top of one of the watch towers the one with air conditioned look at this this is just I can imagine they built this stuff I don’t know 500 years ago also it’s just get all of this up here build all this design all this engineer all this mind blown yeah so we are airborne so I I will I wanna sure try to get this footage [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Music] you this lady self cold-smoked here on the top of this air-conditioned tower yeah I love her she’s a savior [Music] we are now about eight kilometers out on the wall here still amazing and I have to call one of my fellow hikers here you just have to be grateful that that or I have to and I am very grateful that I have to the opportunity to be here right now and witness this awesome and amazing piece of history and piece of engineering yeah I’m grateful I’m very happy if you could see what I can see right now wait I’ll turn you around isn’t that breathtaking this is our goal for today just learned yeah the highest one that’s higher you’re right I like that attitude go there you’ll be on the news tomorrow it’s really great company here Beijing ICA’s very recommended awesome people here I’m kind of happy and kind of sad to see the end of the road I could see someone jump out of that window with a skateboard and then go straight down there maybe fall on that bump [Music] [Music] what happy holidays yeah for sure don’t drink beer right now then I will stay here and here here they have ice cream water beer I think that’s one thing and I really want to have that nice place [Music] I’m good I’m good honestly what’s the point of this maybe the guys on the wall needed to stay fit I have some exercise from time to time not just dully walk up and down the wall you get flat feet from that too boring nope there’s nothing down every now and then look at this why build our own steps if the nature I provided summer there are always small steps and big steps never the right size steps but that doesn’t matter still amazing bake bake bake bake small small small small small [Music] [Music] yeah come on come on you can do it come on there’s five steps keep going man so now we are two towers away from our top destination like about there I drank about four liters of water to coke I bought along the way and I could use some more but this was yeah it was quite okay was an awesome trip I really recommend to go with the Beijing hikers here this was nice people people they the other hikers if fellow hikers here were also very nice people and the guides were awesome so this is a ten out of ten recommendation for the Beijing hikers trip we will now go down from the last hour have a cold beer water whatever some snacks and then go back to Beijing so that’s it from on the wall maybe I will call in back later but that’s it for the hiking party what’s nice awesome so thanks for hiking with me see you then bye bye Great Wall been a blast I think bullying in China well just had dinner in this nice little restaurant behind us it was really good so that’s an 11 out of 10 for Beijing hikers before I say more also migrate and this was ridiculously good just a great experience Beijing hikers thanks for having me with an awesome rule here and awesome people for whom I’m really thankful to be able to travel with them and to hike with them so highly recommended and that’s it for me over out [Music]

  1. Fantastische Ausblicke, wunderbar grüne Landschaften, und super Einblicke in die diversen Stufenvarianten – das weckt Erinnerungen an eigene Touren an die Mauer in 1988 und der großen Überraschung: die Mauer besteht fast nur aus Stufen und Steigungen! Folglich: You really have to climb (erklettern) Changcheng, the Great Wall! Und dann erst die leckeren nordchinesischen Gerichte in einem typischen Restaurant zum Abschluss. Tolle Aufnahmen!
