The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, it winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometers) from east to west of China.

Brilliant to visit away from too many tourists and still get a fantastic view, near a lake. Beware of locals trying to charge you to access 'forbidden' areas - we got stung by someone locking a gate on the way down but for 3RMB pp it was all we spent for a beautiful, lengthy afternoon.

This was a true "bucket List" adventure for me and an amazing experience. I just looked in awe and wondered just how the chinese managed to build this structure . This section is one of the steepest parts and difficult to climb for an old bloke with dodgey knees. There are plenty of tourist keepsakes to buy. A truly great... More

Great experience, not many other visitors when we visited early July. Walked for some time without seeing others on occasions. Pleased to see someone selling water on the way, despite costing slightly more than usual as we had drank our supply.

It is in fantastic shape and the "local" Chinese did not discourage us from taking a peek and a short walk!

This is a mandatory place to visit! Located near Beijing, we had a guided tour. Pogodabyla excellent, sunny. We must have enough power to get to the top, but it's worth it!
