Unfortunately the weather was against us on the day with rain and low cloud. Still it couldn't dampen our enthusiasm. Well presented tourist area with facilities and the ubiquitous tourist and 'leisure food' outlets. Climb is steep and each step varies in height so it is imperative that you look down at your feet at all times less you take... More

There are 2 different paths you can take to climb this section of the great wall. The kinda hard side and the HARD side. I took the kinda hard side and it is a great experience, there is a gift shop when you get to the top (bonus!). The steps are very uneven and it was a winter day so... More

Been to Great Wall a few times. First time on Juyong Pass. The climb is very demanding physically. To make it all the way up could take 45mins or more. Its a lot less tourist compared to Badaling. Once you reached the 13th watch tower..you can peek over and see the ruins. Certainly not suitable for old people. Coffee cost... More

One of the reasons I took a tour of China, was to see the Great Wall. It was memorable and and worth it to climb. Our tour guide suggested we go to the left, the steeper route, and I'm glad he did. Several people in my tour group and I made it to No. 12 Fortress and it was an... More

Juyong Pass of the Great Wall is located in Changping district, Beijing. It is not very accessible by public transports. You can take the Changping line subway and transfer to buses. Juyong Pass is the steepest section among the entire Great Wall. It was tiring for us to climb up, as the steps are quite high in between. But when... More

Amazing experience ! There is a lot of people and be sure to bring very comfortable shoes because the walk up is very steep

Not the most visited part of the wall and with this good access. Very steep stairs up, difficult for children and quite sporty for adults. Very well rebuilt piece of the wall and great views

We got to the pass just before 8am as traffic in Beijing was better than expected and were lucky enough to be the first to arrive that day. It's not an easy climb, and there was still snow and ice on some parts, so take it slow and enjoy the views.

This place is INSANE! I workout but wow this place kicked our rear end! We had approximately 2 hours to make it to the top and back down, it was tough. But glad we made it. Totally worth it. A MUST in Beijing.
