I went to Jinshanling section of the Great Wall. It is pretty far from Beijing around 3 hours, but definitely worth it. You can take the cable car or hike to the wall. We hiked from one to other gate. It took us 5-6 hours. This section is less crowded.

Less restored in places, rough in places but authentic. Some really nice views including snaking wall in both directions. Autumn colours. Steep ups and downs. Doable but strenuous. If you can do this section you can really claim to have an appreciation of the Gr-wall. No crowds, no vendors. . From the ticket office, shuttle to the camping area then walk to the horse statue and (?) #8 tower then via West 5 window, General tower, finishing at East 5 window then taking the path back down. 6Km (4km of wall) in 3 hours. A couple of places are *really steep*. Way better than the cutesy sections. Not a walk for compromised knees. Bring drinks, none available on teh route. Loved it.

Really fun way to experience the Great Wall. Lots of climbing. Up and down and up again. Slippery slopes and uneven steps. But it’s definitely doable for people with average fitness levels. Just take it slow-you have plenty of time to complete the hike-and soak in the amazing scenery. Our guide guide Alice gave us plenty of background info so we were armed and dangerous. It really was the perfect way to spend a day on Beijing. We highly recommend!!!

We booked this trip directly online, could also pay with paypal, which was very convenient. The Meeting point is at the subway station. Don't get confused. After the whole group were together, The drive to Jinshanling great wall was 2.5 hours, other places of the wall for exapmple Badaling are closer to Beijing, but more crowded and touristic. The tour guide Alice explained very a lot of the Great wall itself and about the hiking tour and the alternative ways (cable cars, short cuts etc). the lunch was was great! highly recommend!
