The great wall is one of the must see attractions in the world. No visit to China is compet without walking the steep stairs or looking out the high towers. This area is about 3-4 hours upside Beijing so there are far less tourist and a great combination of newer and ancient towers. I was blown away by the sceenery... More

It took a little less than 3 hours from the Backpackers Hotel to here. But it was worth the trip as there's no crowds here. The Great Wall is so impressive with it's height, length, history and quiet that you are in awe just to able to hike on it for about 3 hours. The last 45 minutes we just... More

As you drive out to this point of the wall, your first glimpse will take your breath away. You start to see it snaking along the mountains. At Jiangjunguan you have the ability to walk in two directions. The first being super steep, (this was to the left of the pagoda),but we were told that you get a great view... More

The great wall was amazing. It felt great standing on something that was man made long time ago and to actually still standing with the history behind it. Must see.

Everyone in the Beijing area should visit the Great Wall. Worth getting there as early as possible and climbing as high as possible, both for the views and to avoid the crush as crowds thin out further up. The views are stunning and as good as www ere led to believe. Worth the climb which is ok as plenty of... More

We really enjoyed our visit on a monday. Not crowded at all. But you do need to be very fit to walk some sections as they are very steep. But the vistas along the way were awesome.

You have to see it to just imagine, how the hell did they manage to build it at that era. You must attempt to climb atleast to the first stop. And every step you take, you have to give credit to the people who sacrifice to create this man made marvel. But a warning..to get down,grab tightly on the pole..it... More
