We wanted to avoid the super touristy Mutianyu and chose Jinshanling to get away from the crowds. We took a 2-hour bus from the heart of Beijing, then hired a private driver to take us the rest of the way. He waited for us at the foot of the mountain and then took us back to our hostel (Note: we... More

We went on a tour organised through our hotel (Beijing 161). When we got there after about 2 hours in the bus, we had the choice of doing the longer tour involving the renovated (no chairlift) and unrenovated sections of the Wall or just the unrenovated on with chairlift (both about 3 hours on the Wall). While most of the... More

My wife and I visited Jinshanling in May and the experience was amazing – it was without doubt a major highlight of our trip. I have been to The Great Wall previously when I visited the horrendous tourist trap that is Badaling, which now pales into insignificance compared to the spectacular Jinshanling section of the Wall. This is how I... More

We had a half day hiking tour of the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China - No wonder it is called the "Great Wall". We started with the cable car and moved on till the old 4 towers. We were awestruck by the majestic views of both the wall and the surroundings. Hats off to each and every... More

As universally known, the Great Wall is the symbol of China. Starting from Shanhaiguan in the East, and ending at Jiayuguan in the west, the Great Wall fully deserves its reputation as a World's Wonder. The Great Wall runs for more than 2,000 kilometers in Hebei Province alone, going through about 200 passes. The Jinshanling Great Wall of China is... More

We wanted to see more than one small section of The Wall but without extended strenuous hiking. With a guide and driver from China Odyssey, we did some sightseeing in Beijing one morning, then headed to Mutianyu section. (If planning to see both sections, see Mutianyu first because Jinshanling is even more breathtaking.) Amazingly beautiful vistas of the wall at... More

A day trip from Beijing by taking a bus from dongzhimen to miyun station(last station on the route, 15Y/person), then finding a driver (about 200-300Y) to wait while you explore and take you back. One half is rebuilt and one half is a little less remodeled. Very few other visitors. 60Y entry fee. Many vendors selling beverages, feel free to... More

We hiked the 6km of the wall from Jinshanling to Simatai. We were delighted to find very few people had made the 3 hour trip from downtown Beijing to this section. There were a few locals with stalls selling drinks and snacks along the route, and a few other hikers apart from our group, but the area was very serene... More
