Jinshanling Great Wall is located in Luanping County, Chengde, Hebei Province, 80 miles (130 kilometers) northeast of Beijing. It used to be a sound defensive system including barrier walls, battlement walls, watchtowers, gun emplacements, shooting...more
Leave early if you want to beat the heat and other hikers. We left our Beijing hotel by 6:30 and were on the top of the wall by 9:30. Wear comfortable walking shoes or sneakers that have a good grip as there are a lot...More
Went here with a tour, we departed from Beijing at 8.00 and arrived there 3 hours later. We went up from the middle gate and then hiked to the east gate (the highest point, I believe it was five windowed tower). Took about 3 and...More
Take a city bus number 1,5,15 or 19 to the west bus station (汽车西站). From here you can take a minibus to the LuanPing town. The bus supposed to go every hour. There is a time schedule but it's pretty casual. We wanted to take...More

We visited three sections of the Great wall on our recent visit to China and this had to be the best section. Totally uncrowded and gloriously peaceful you could just take in the stunning scenery and the beauty of the wall in this section
I took a tour to visit the sites of China in clouding the great wall. This section is unbelievable, very few people here along the old sections which still need repair, was good to see both parts of the wall. I even paid for a...More
Hassle free day trip from Beijing with buss to service area, hop in the free shuttle to the gate. Very few people hike the wall, made the view of the wall and surrounding more enjoyable.
I had a very memorable hike here.
For those who...More
This section of the great wall is amazing for photography where one can easily get a shot of a long stretch of the wall with no crowd. Some stamina required to hike this section. However do take note that information on the cable car operation...More
