This section of the Great Wall is a reasonable distance(~3hrs drive) from Beijing and our group had an overnight stay to make this possible. The reward however was a completely uncrowded location. It really is spectacular, far better than any photos I had seen before...More

This is more remote and takes longer to get to, but is well worth the travel! Not so many tourists so the experience was simply great! I have dreamed of going here since a very early age and it only took about 45 years to...More

It’s outside Beijing and actually in hebei but this is a worthwhile trip out to see. There are no trams or cable cars to bring in the masses of colorful tour groups to storm the gates. There is a balance of ruins and complete sections...More

We went to the Jinshanling section of the wall on a Sunday. This section is 150km from Beijing but our tour guide had recommended making the effort going here rather than another section which is 75km from Beijing. It took us just under 2 hours...More

It was difficult to find reliable and complete information about hiking on the Great Wall so I decided to post what we learned from our experience there. We visited the Gubeikou-Jinshanling-Simatai section to the north of Beijing. If you want to hike on really scenic...More
