LOVED IT! A must see and climb! The views are unimaginable as you are driving towards the wall and when you are at the top. The weather had been cool so we were all dressed warmly but the steps are steep and uneven and it is quite a workout so we were stripping down fast the higher we went! Wear... More

You cannot say you have truly seen China without taking a trip to the Great Wall. Yes you must be in shape to do it, but it will worth your time. You will be amazed by the grandeur of this magnificent masterpiece. I was very tired after going through this but it’s one of a kind experience. The scenery is... More

This is a special site where you can take wheelchair all the way. Best for elderly. Young people can climb up.

We were told that by going out to this part of the wall we would find there were less tourists, but on the day we went - a Sunday - it was quite crowed in places. Most people do seem to stop after the first tower so if you keep on walking you will find it empties out and becoming... More

This has ticked a huge bucket list place for me. You must be in fit condtion to really enjoy the hike and steps and inclines.Most Europeans/Americans only tackled the first tower,{overweight and unfit }the best parts are 3 /4 towers away from the crowds.

I was on a business trip so didn't have to organise entry etc. We pulled up at the wall and simply went for a stroll. The occasional tourist, but very few people; very few postcard touts too, and those who were there were super-polite. Do some homework - there's not much information on the wall - bring sturdy walking shoes,... More

Although it was a rainy day the view is great and everything is well organized and functional because you can choose to get to the great mountain walking or with cable car service

Get a birds eye view of the Forbidden city and Beihai Park. There is much history here as well, so read before you go to get the most out of this promontory. Personally this should be a part of the forbidden city tour. So just keep going once you've crossed the moat of the forbidden city.
