loved this part of the wall since it was empty and you had the choice to fully enjoy this monument! Took a private driver which was really convenient!

The wall was fabulous, one comment is that it would be a lot easier walking the wall when I was younger,

Make sure you request a no shopping tour, we did a a normal tour with all the shopping stops which means less time at the Wall which is amazing and I'd recommend you spend more time there and less time stopping at all the shops with people asking you to buy stuff....

Its everything you expect. Be prepared to walk up and down stairs - sometimes very steep. Bring camera. Take the chairlift up and ride the toboggan down. Great fun. Toboggan operator had great sense of humor

Huanghuacheng is a great place to see the wall away from the crowds at Badaling and Mutianyu. We were there twice and saw a total of 11 other people. There is a mix of old (wild) wall that has deteriorated over the past 500-odd years and renovated sections which provide a stark contrast. There are very steep sections on the... More

having been to both the main wall viewing points Bandaling and Mand....... this is by far the most amazing. The wall is in theory not open to the public but there is a pathway over local farmers land and for 2 yuan per person to 2 landlords, (no entrance fee) the passage is open to climb the wall. BUT make... More

to think these walls originated over 2,000 years ago is something that one can't comprehend. We travelled in September 2013 on a 3 week visit to China. It was HOT! weather was unbelievable. Lot of people though as we went during the Moon festival. Truly it was amazing.. Go to China if you can!

This section of wall is still close to Beijing but yet is less visited than other sections. This makes for a much more enjoyable experience. The landscape is still steep in this part, therefore the wall still takes on an impressive picture. Walk west and you can make it to Xishuiyu Village in a few hours. Walking east looks more... More

The journey from Beijing takes about 90 mins by car, but the trip is well worth it. But make sure you wear comfy shoes and be prepared for some extremely steep climbs!! Seriously, I play tennis regularly and am pretty fit, but there were parts of the Wall where the gradient was so steep, the only way I could get... More
