We spent a couple of hour to hike this part of the wall. We enjoyed it very much. You need to be in a fair condition to do this part of the wall, and need to be careful during the trip. We liked it very much. Because we were there in December there were nobody else in the wall.

Walked (?) rather trekked with an Exodus group for six days. Many of the steps we had to climb rather than walk - a bit tough for this somewhat overweight 66 year old yet worth the experience. The experience overall was well worth the effort - hard to imagine the labour involved in its construction. Beijing still struggles with Caucasian... More

The village is a few hours from the capital and you can go by public transport. The trails are fairly heavy climbs but the encounter with the wall is worth it! You go up inside of plums and apricots fields which makes the walk much better. The wall not this restored then you can feel the true story. some places... More

the great wall is truly a wonderful place to visit. It is very long and you may need a full day to walk around and cover major part of the wall. I myself got very tired after walking around for a few minutes, it is a places one must visit in their lifetime once.

The stair at this section of the great wall is quite steep and may not suitable for the elder. The wind is also quite strong and the garden renovation creates a lot of dust.

It's quite close to Beijing, but I've been in August and August is the worst decade to visit Beijing and Great Wall. The air is hot and very humid, and the smog killed us. We could sow nothing but a creapy fog. Mor then that it was more crowded than hell after a rock festival.

Our chosen day happened to be overcast and slightly rainy. Considering this is considered the water part of the Great Wall it was perfectly fine. Truly, the rain brought out the calm and peace of this place while keeping the crowds away.

We were stunned by the view. luckily we had a clear blue sly, even though temperature was cold. absolutely stunning view, and just the thought of being next to one of the world´s greatest wonders, a place that could be seen from the moon. Nailed one from my bucket list!

You will need to bring good shoes if you plan to walk any distance. Is definitely a wonder of the World not to be missed there are a couple of areas of the wall to see but doing one will be plenty
