You almost have to pinch yourself when you ascend onto the wall, it is spectacular. Take the tram ride up and the mountain slide tobagon down, it makes the wall that much more exciting. Give yourself time to leisurely walk along the wall, to appreciate the history, geography and architecture. Some sections are steep, so good practical walking shoes are helpful. Camera is essential. Its not that far from Beijing and a private guide & driver makes it an easy 1/2 day outing.
