We enjoyed walking a portion of the Great Wall. This is only a small section of the Great Wall. We were at the Great Wall in Nov. The weather was not bad during our visit.

Unimaginable expanse!!! Pictures do nothing when you are there, as you gaze across the many miles of the wall that are visible. Some of the paths on top of the wall are steep and only good for the sure footed. Do Not Miss this Attraction!!!

December 2017 entry ticket was ¥20. The “sliding car” (a fun way to get to the first level) was 100. Don’t know the cable car going to near the top. Enjoy!
