I have tracked most of the walls over the years in and out to China, but my favorite remains Jinshanglin to Simatai. During the week less traffic, choose a blue sky day which you may get more in spring and autumn. Picnic and refreshment recommended as it may take a whole day to explore the various towers and views. There... More

If you go to Beijing you must visit it!! At first, I walk on the Jinshanling and Simatai sections, which are the most original parts, and then I went to the beginning of the Gubeikou, where an extraordinary view was in front of my eyes: an "infinite" construction that extends along the mountains. Although this part was recently rebuilt (so... More

Wow! This section of the Great Wall in amazing. The wall is mostly in its original condition and has not been rebuilt. There are steps leading off the Wall to the ground and I highly recommend that you give these a go. There are some incredible information plaques at the bottom of some of the steps that give a little... More

My husband and I booked a group tour with the Beijing Tour during peak tourist season and we've never been more happy with the decision. They wall here is beautiful and it doesn't have the giant mass of tourists the others did. You have the option of walking up or taking the gondola. We walked it but phew! It was... More

I'm not sure all the reviewers here are referring to the website linked to this TA entry (ie jinshanlingtosimatai.com) we sent them an email 2 days in advance and they confirmed right away with 6am as pickup time. they further confirmed this the day before the trip, only to "forget to pick us up" as they said. we waited outside...

This particular hike on the Great Wall is EXCELLENT because it is the furthest away from Beijing: meaning it has very few tourist groups and crowds. When we went we were the only group on the Wall and got incredible pictures. Hawkers will swarm you from your bus to the wall and on the wall. Besides their hawking, they will... More

Despite the temperature being 36C and humidity over 90 per cent, the walk was everything I had wanted it to be from when I first wanted to walk the Great Wall when I was about 8 years old. No crowds. Almost no souvenir sellers. Clear and uninterrupted views, despite the haze.

We were on a Wendy Wu special tour, with our Ramblers group. This was the sector suggested for a good walk, it was exceptional. Weather was beautiful, blue skies (and frost at first). Because we were the only people there we were followed by the locals trying to sell stuff, but minimal hassle. Fabulous wide ranging views, and we had... More

Defiintely the highlight of our 16 day tour to China. We travelled with a group (China Star Holidays) that I would highly reccommend. It included a 2 hour stop at Badaling, which is totally restored and has lots of tourists. Our last day was a free day, and while most members of the group went shopping in Beijing (boring!) my...
