The Great Wall of Sheer Determination Gets You Anything! by 


While I was hiking the Great Wall – gasping for air and feeling my tired legs – I started pondering over how the Mongolians could manage this climb and how much determination they must have to get through this monstrous marvel. And how did the Chinese build the wall to start with?? No machinery, no technology, just pure human strength – or was it just sheer determination?

    Great Image,

    I took a few similar shots, but the people in yours add a nice focal point.

    Thanks for your feedback. I was very ecstatic taking this shot, honestly. I think it was the rub off from the thought that I’ve conquered The Great Wall!!!

    Hi Dominique, it’s Mutianyu. I wanted a less crowded wall to climb so I can enjoy the sense of having conquered the Great Wall – and not share it with one thousand other people… Thanks for your comments and whereabouts were you living in China?
