Jiangjunguan Great Wall is a section that isn't nearly as crowded as Badaling but still easily accessible to Beijing. I've been to three sections of the Wall and this was the steepest and the least crowded. In fact, at the end of a very nice day in October, we were the only people on the wall~even the shops closed at... More

Climb as high as you can and enjoy the immense panoramic views and imagine the lives that built this wall. A nice area to rest, shop, and eat. A bit of a bus ride to arrive at the entrance but well worth it. Enjoyed the glimpses of village life along the way

Impressive physical efforts to construct something visible from the moon, but never worked. So many pushy locals make it impossible to move through the choke points without behaving like them.

Built a few years(joking) ago! I looked in wonderment, how did this structure evolve such a long time ago, and still be standing in reasonably good condition( this section) But looking at it from a 21st century outlook, how can you manoeuvre troops in a hurry up and down stairs, and defend at the same time, feel sorry for the...

The views are more spectacular and you can hike on the undeveloped parts of the wall here for quite a distance. The first time I was here was before the olympics and you could actually camp on the wall and have food brought up from the small village. Now the small village has been displaced and there is a tourist... More

Awesome experience. Steps are steep so be careful. once in a life time kind of experience. Take your jacket and sun screen with you if you intend to walk for more than a mile.

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
