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

One of the best attractions when you are in Beijing. Do not try to go by yourself, it is complicated if you do not speak chines. Just pay for a tour.

More original compare to other Pass of the Great wall. As never build any elevator for tourist. Everywhere need to walk and climb yourself up. Nice view when you reach the 3 tower and above. Will go back again...

Went on a big tour of China with Wendy Wu Tours and, according to the tour literature, we would set out early in the morning to go to a part of the Great Wall less visited by tourists and where parts of the original wall were still visible and in use. Heading out of Beijing on the motorway, we followed... More

We were taken here by the tour guide although I booked Mutianyu. Be warned not to book cheap tours especially when you get offered the tour near the Forbidden City. I got a card by guy called Mark phone number +86 15201311756 - don't call this number! The whole tour was a bit of the scam: we were taken to... More

The place is great and you will enjoy some of the best photos you will ever get of the wall. Walking around or "climbing" the wall is a lot easier around here. Bear in mind that you will not find anything to eat or drink around here. You will find a shop or two just near the entrance, but the... More

Our trip to the at Juyonggua section of the Great Wall totally exceeded my expectations - absolutely awe-inspiring! It was challenging to climb but something not to be missed.The lower levels were very crowded but numbers thinned quickly as we progressed with members of our party being the only ones at the top. With July temps at a humid 33+... More
