I went out to the Jinshanling section of the wall with a small group tour run by China Highlights. The hike for 6km that we did was wonderful with spectacular views of the Great Wall, many watchtowers and hardly any other people around. There were a lot of steps going up and down but this should only be a problem... More

This is a much less "fixed up" section of the Great Wall and has the advantage (because it is further from Beiing) of being relatively uncrowded. The scenery is amazing, but there are some very rough spots and some very steep ones. I had no problem (at 58 years old), but I know a lot of people who just could... More

After having done Mutianyu & HuangHuaCheng, I decided to try this other part of the great wall and the least I can say is that we were not disappointed. Almost no people despite being there during Chinese holidays and stunning views over the great wall. It can become quite sportive but that something we are looking for so it was... More

If you want to experience the Great Wall without the crowds and souvenir stalls, with great scenery, great walk, this is a great place. It is a bit far from Beijing, and for a day trip is a long day. But totally worth it.

If you wanna enjoy some views without crowds - this is the place to go. I mean there are many parts of the Great Wall without tourists, but those sections are usually in a bad condition and it isn't easy to climb the wall... This part is quite romote - and it is a good thing. We were the only... More

We planned to hike beginning here and ending at the Gubeikou Section. And if you can believe it once we were on the great wall we ran into only one other person the entire way!! What a pleasant surprise. I think most people walk up to the wall, take a look and a couple of pictures and come back down.... More

Chose to hike the remote section between Jinshanling and Simatai instead of visiting the section closest to Beijing swamped by tourists in their thousands. 20 of us definitely made an excellent choice as we encountered not more than 20 other visitors along the way. And the views of the wall were great. Possible to organise the trip inexpensively through some... More

You want the best for your visit of this unmissable Must-See ? Go to Jinshanling ! No crowd and access to some old wall houses. I had a magic day, probably one of the best famous monument visit in the world I had !! I recommend !!

After reading a lot of reviews on all the different Great Wall sections near Beijing I decided this was the one that appealed most to me, and it certainly didn't disappoint! It's well worth the extra effort to get here (compared to the overcrowded Badaling or Mutianyu sections). It was almost nightfall when we arrived but there was a full... More

This is the best place to visit the Great Wall if you want to enjoy the majestic views and short hike without swarms of people. We saw only a handful of people the entire time we were there, which made for an experience we would have thought was impossible for such a popular tourist attraction.
