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.

Amazing views and a mix of restored and unrestored wall. Bit tricky to get to (easiest to hire a car / van), but well worth it.

Jinshanling is extraordinary. Desolate, isolated, extraordinary vistas. Unforgettable. And let me also put in a word for Simon Xiao, my driver. Simon was amazing! First, he was prompt in picking me up at my hotel and friendly and informative on the drive to Jinshanling and in guiding me to the right spot to begin my hike and offering me bottled... More

Thanks to APEC the air was clear, no mask needed. Our guide suggested to climb the right side of the parking area for those not in the best of shape and left for those who want a challenge. I did the right side with my wife and left side alone. It was definitely more challenging because the incline is steeper,... More
