What a fabulous time we had.
Our tour guide collected us from our hotel at 7.00am....to beat the crowds. This was a wonderful idea. After getting there we decided to go to the top via the chair lift, and besides being a fun way to...More
Easy trip from Beijing. Fun taking tram up the mountain and of course the toboggan down. Cold beer and Great Wall t-shirts price negotiable at the top. Lines move quickly. Steep climbs so wear steady shoes and start early in the day to avoid the...More

I cannot remember the tower number we arrived at with the cable car but please determine that your cable car is the open one. There is another cable car further away which is the enclosed one. If it is the open one, then the tobiggan is just next to it!

Definitely. The difficulty level is high if you want to go to the end points (South and North) of the wall. As long as you take the shuttle and cable car, 2.5 hours is plenty of time and the difficulty is manageable. Also, the weather in October will be more manageable than the summer heat.
