Amazing experience running the Great Wall Marathon here. I absolutely recommend it! It's STEEP though. Take it slowly and be sure stay hydrated in summer. The wall is well paved in this section.

I stayed here as part of the photography team for the Great Wall Marathon. It's very basic. The rooms were ok, probably a 1-star as far as quality goes, but it's typical for the area I believe. The grounds are amazing and staff are friendly...More
