The great wall is on many people's bucket list for a reason! The sights are amazing and the pictures you take, you'll be sharing with your grandchildren. This was a must, must, must for me when visiting China and it live up to my expectation. A few things to note. We went mid-winter and the crowds were much lighter than... More

Climbing up this part of the wall was magnificent. It was very busy at the start but thinned out the higher you went. It was a very strenuous walk but well worth it for the view. Carry plenty of water, although there are people selling it along the way.

This is a great alternative to Badaling and has significantly less people. We arrived early, but there were still quite some people. The first tower splits the crowd abd leaves the unfit behind. The hike to the top took us 40min, which was a great cardio workout - bring a bottle of water!. There are shops on the way to... More

Walking on the Great Wall was, for me, as many others, an experience that you will never forget. Truly a wonder of the world, it is remarkable how well preserved (be it somewhat restored) the wall is. You can walk as far, or as short a distance as you want, and there is great shopping and food options available. If... More

I honestly think wherever you go to see the Great Wall is going to be a great experience! I don't think this is the best part of the Great Wall based on the research I did, but honestly it was still incredible. Make sure you climb the whole wall if possible. The less steep side with the temples was better... More

My tour took me to the Juyongguan area of the Great Wall, north of Beijing. I am sure many of the other reviews here tell you to visit as a 'must'. I don't disagree! I won't reiterate what many of the reviews already state, but will offer some tips: - Go early! Our tour arrived as one of the first... More

I wanted the Badaling or the Mutianyu part of the Great Wall of China but the final tour package was at the Juyongguan pass. Well, I was ok with that; anyways whichever wall I climb is for the experience of it. Accordingly, this is the nearest of all the Great Wall of China and the most preserved and less crowded.... More

I participated in a guided tour here which took us here instead of Badaling supposedly because of the traffic situation. Since it was a Sunday morning, the place was quite packed with tourist. However, I believe that is a regular occurrence. The climb up is quite challenging as your basically walking up stairs with many, many steps for several hundred... More

Went with first time visitors to the Great Wall. This is the nearest to Beijing with convenient access and not too overly crowded. This section of the wall is largely rebuilt and some may find it not very interesting or not original enough. Anyway it gives first time visitors a good understanding of the Great Wall. There are Easy and... More
