“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Seemed to be the section less crowded. But disliked all the souvenier sellers at the entrance to the lift.

“make it wild”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Facing the wall from the south, go left and keep climbing past the incline of many steps, past the extent of the wall's restoration, and keep going along the wild part. That is the best!

“Good exercise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

It was not crowded when we were there and we can walk and rest at our own pace. It has a very nice view too. The steps are steeper as compared to Badaling but we enjoyed this great exercise. :)
