After a lot of research I had purposely chosen this section of the Great Wall. And I haven't been disappointed at all - it was an amazing experience. I was there around Chinese New Year (mid of Feb 2015) and there was hardly any one (although our guide said 'it's busy') Lots of images without any people - solely the... More

I was in Beijing for the Chinese new year with a few friends. We went to Jinshanling because we wanted to be away from tourists and busy crowds. The whole experience was truly mind-blowing. We hired a private guide, Simon Xiao (you can look him up he's got a website), to drive us there as it is about 2 hours... More

This is just plain amazing. A bit rough to walk with walker and cane but to be able to say " I climbed the Great Wall " however so short is a proud thing to proclaim!

I was in Beijing in December, so it was freezing! Nonetheless I jumped on a tour to hike this section of the great wall. While it is quite far out of Beijing, when we turned up there was quite literally no one else there except for those on my tour. For the whole hike we had the great wall to... More

This part of the wall is a must see for those searching scenic bliss. This section has authentic history (minimal restoration) and views of the wall further than your eyes will allow you to see. My brother and I visited Mitianyu which was great to see, but it was very touristy and well maintained. We then thankfully ventured a few... More

It is the only part of the wall we have visited during our stay in Beijing. It is about a 3-hour drive away from the city centre, but certainly worth the time. The wall is in very good shape and the views are stunning. Moreover, since it is so far away from the city, there only few other tourists, so... More

This part of the wall is amazing. You can see the wall for miles rolling up and over hills. My partner and I went with another 5 people and we were the only ones on the wall for the 3 hours we were there. There are parts of this wall that haven't been rebuilt for over 500 years and it... More

We went to this spot of the wall with Great Wall Adventures, a tour company that was recommended by a friend... My son wanted to find a remote part of the Wall and make into a hike... We did GuBeiKou to JinShanLing... This was a tough hike, but absolutely beautiful... I am sure that not more than 20 people climb... More

If you're going to see the Great Wall, see it here. my partner and i walked for 3 hours over the incredible rolling mountains without passing another soul. It was simply ridiculously good.

Went up the cable car and walked down through the village. Lots of towers and changing scenery. Very few people. Peaceful and beautiful.
