Mutianyu Great Wall luge video is extreme and amazing

(CBS) - So you may know about the Great Wall of China, but there's a feature you may not know about at one portion of the wall: an extreme luge. The above video was shot at the Mutianyu Great Wall luge course on a GoPro HD and will literally have you feeling like the wind is whipping through your hair as you watch.

The actual luge starts at about 45 seconds into the video.  Check it out!

YouTube user "TheLachyG" posted this amazing video and writes:

Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall of China just outside of Beijing, Apart from its spectacular views, Mutianyu is home to a massive downhill Luge.

After watching this amazing video, I want to do this luge course so bad now.  Looks like I'll need to start saving and scheduling for a little vacation time in Beijing.
