After struggling through long traffic jams, our tour bus deposited us at the entrance to this section of the Wall. We decided to climb as far as the first fort and were very pleased to achieve that aim. The steps are steep and of varying height so progress is slow with several rest stops required. In addition, there were crowds... More

My visit here certainly met my expectations. This section of the wall is all reconstructed and well maintained which is necessary because of the heavy tourist traffic. It provides a good look at how the wall looked when first constructed. Although well maintained it is not easy to walk on for people with balance or mobility problems. The surface is... More

This is such an amazing site and so well, preserved. The climb is short or linger but be prepared for steep, tall steps. The scenery is spectacular and well worth the visit.

A great place to see the wall, and access is easy. The only problem is the sheer number of tourists which can swamp you & make it difficult to get a clear photo without half the world's population in it. As with most attractions there's also a lot of tourist "kitsch" there.

We visited the Juyong Pass section of the Great Wall as part of the pre-cruise land tour. This was our first time in China, and we had no idea what this would be like. We were just blown away by the scale of the structures, as well as how steep the steps were. I climbed up the stairs up to... More

We visited Juyong Pass, or Juyongguan, with a private driver. It's pretty much the closest access point to the Great Wall from the city, and has the advantage of being accessible directly from where you park your car, as opposed to having to park and hike for 30 min or so just to see the wall. So, if you have... More

Juyong pass is the only part of great wall which i ve been to. It was great. There will be people crafting... More

Like many things in China the size and spectacle of the Great Wall is amazing. If you think you are in for a pleasant stroll you are wrong. It is uneven steps all the way. Also much worse going down than going up. But worth it, great sense of achievement in the end. Don't do this if you are medically... More

This must be the reason to come to Beijing. Crowded but worth taking the time to climb this wonder of the world. The sheer scale is magnificent - but make sure you have some relative fitness
