The Great Wall is an amazingly awesome experience. It saddened and disgusted me though to see The Walls own Countrymen openly URINATING in the towers/turrets along the wall. It is obviously a common occurrence as there were several signs along the wall asking visitors to refrain from urinating along the wall!!! NOTE: the walk is not for the faint hearted... More

I'm not a sightseeing person, and I have seen the great wall in pictures ad on TV. But -> Being here was fantastic. It's huge. You can see it bends over mountain tops in the horizon. We did a 3 hour walk, but you can do it way shorter (or longer). It's well worth the trip from Beijing.

We climbed up to the fifth tower. It was quite a feat but worth the effort. This section of the great wall has been renovated and offers beutiful and commanding views. We were lucky as the weather, although cold and windy, the sky was clear and lovely. It is a day's excursion.

This is a great place for a summer hike! The scenery is great, hike is not exhausting, and very little crowd. Relaxing place

Firstly I should start by saying that the Great Wall is spectacular one of the best sights we've seen & we have been travelling for 6 months. We also went to Mutianyu during our stay in Beijing & would not be put off by the fact it's been restored. You can actually walk onto wild sections of the wall beyond... More

It is not as grand as Badaling nor Mutianyu... The quietness, the rustic walls maybe at times errie but it nevertheless offers another sight/ side of the great wall.. Go there if you have time on your plate as its about 3hrs drive from Beijing... (Not easy drive...)

Strenuous so you must be fit. Many steps are uneven and handrails sparse but well worth the effort to see and climb even a few steps
