I spent a day with a colleague at Jinshanling and it ranks in the top five sites I have ever visited. We had been offered a visit to more developed places on the wall closer to Beijing, but she had heard that Jinshanling was far less developed and she was absolutely right. It is a fair drive from Beijing, taking... More

Traveling with a family of 4 including a 10 and 12 year old, I wanted to experience the real Great Wall and not the restored touristy areas of the wall. This part of the wall is what you imagine the wall should be... unrestored, old, crumbly and rich with history. Arrived early in the morning during late November and the... More

We hiked from Jinshanling to Simatai one day tour. It will take you about 1.5 to 3 hours for this hike! Absolutely amazing scenery. 90% of the route was untouched. Not many tourists! Highly recommended!

This access to the Great Wall is GREAT ! Great views ! NO BIG CROWDS !! Part of the Wall restored 30 years ago and other part is 500 years old , untouched !!! AMAZING. Only downside... it is about 150 kms from Beijing. But the express way is really good and the traffic flows very well.

Jinshanling is three hours away by car from Beijing. We took a private tour with Paul at Great Wall Expert. This section of the Great Wall gives an excellent perspective of its history in that there are restored and unrestored sections giving a good feel and comparison of both. The view of that never-ending string of the wall ahead and... More

I booked my Great Wall hike through Downtown Backpacker's Hostel because I they took a pretty independent approach for this excursion. I you want a tour guide that leads a group around with a flag and a megaphone, this is not for you. You don't really need a guide to see things around Beijing, just read up on the sites... More

Jingshanling Great Wall is the best preserved and essential section of Great Wall in China with two features of strategic geographical location and special dense towers. Jingshanling Great Wall is relatively less crowded, so walking on the Great Wall to enjoy the steep mountains, unique towers and experience the stories at the ancient time is beautiful thing. It also attracts... More

I have visited Mutianyu and Badalin and for me this is the best part of the Great Wall I climbed. It is further away from Beijing than other parts of the wall yet totally worth it. First because it's not crowded and you can feel literally alone on this wall. Second it's not fully refurbished so it looks more ancient... More

Went by road to Jinshanling from Beijing. It is a bit further by road but well worth the extra travelling. It was almost deserted and we could walk the wall without all those tourists. We went with a guide which was a great advantage as you learn a lot more. We took lunch with and had it sitting on the... More

On a 6 day trek of the Great Wall, this was my favourite part. We hiked 14 km from Gubeikou to Jinshanling and simply loved the wall. Undulating with about 500m elevation gain according to my GPS. Lots of restored and un-restored sections along the way and so many opportunities for sweeping vistas with the wall threading back and forth... More
