The First Lady and her daughters Malia Obama and Sasha Obama visited the Great Wall of China on Sunday and a photo of the visit looks like it is a moment they will never forgot.

“Sharing a moment at the Great Wall #FLOTUSinChina,” she captioned the photo on Twitter.

In the photo the First Lady embraces her girls as the trio smiles in front of the amazing backdrop.

President Barack Obama’s wife shared the details of the experience on her White House Blog.

“Today we drove about an hour north of Beijing to a village called Mutianyu to visit a section of the Great Wall of China, which was simply breathtaking,” she explained. “The scenery on the way there was beautiful – a wide vista of mountains and trees – so the car ride alone was a treat.  But then, running along the highest ridges of the mountains, you see it: The Great Wall – one of the great marvels of human history.”

“To get to the Wall, we rode a cable car up a mountain (and we later rode back down on a long slide!),” she continued. “The section we visited is one of the more popular parts of the Wall for tourists, and it’s easy to see why,” she described about Towers 14 to 15.

At the end of the visit, Obama was presented with a “”I climbed the Great Wall of China” certificate.
