This is not the place to visit the Great Wall if you want and quiet and more personalized view. I visited on a not-so-crowded day and there were still crowds of people ascending the stairs. The surrounding mountain scenery is very beautiful.

This was a humbling experience, what a magnificent piece of architecture. We walked a few towers but the going is hard with un even steps and vertical walking up the mountain, great views and a great experience
