Wow, to be able to say that I've walked the Great Wall of China is unbelievable. The view was breathtaking both looking down, around at the scenery, and at the great expanse of other parts of the wall. I cried when I realized how much this national history meant, even though I'm not from this country. The steps are quite... More

Our 2nd trip to the wall (first trip to Mutianyu wall which was also very good) The visit to Huanghuacheng Great Wall was definitely worth visiting and makes me want to walk more of the wall. The wall was brilliant with hardly any people and so picturesque as it cascaded into the distance with a view of a lake nearby.... More

Visited with Beijing backpackers (based in nanluoguxiang) for an overnight camping trip on the wall. Less people here and way way better than Badaling/Mutianyu. I really loved having the wall to ourselves and the wall is more up and down so it's a lot of fun to climb, but more for people (like myself) that like an actual climb on... More

Just be rady for the great adventure and prepare your stamina to hiking the stairs here. There are some options to visit great wall.

This place really is heaven on earth. We hired a private driver to take us here and we arrived at about 8:30AM. We were the only people in the massive car park. We checked out the wall first of all, then we walked to the ponds and around the lake. Spectacular views all-round. The whole area was very quiet and... More

My son had visited the Badaling section of the Great Wall together with his classmates during his summer school in Beijing & had a thoroughly miserable time, shuffling along amidst a sea of selfie-stick wielding humanity. When I arrived in Beijing & said I wanted to see the Great Wall he was none too enthusiastic. After some research, however, we... More

We went to this part of the wall by accident due to rain. You have to hike about 10 minuts to get to the wall, which you access on a small bamboo latter. Neither of our children age 7 and 10 had any difficulties accessing the wall or walking it. The landscape around the wall is breathtaking.

Desiring to take a day trip to the Great Wall with minimal crowds made this the perfect choice. Taking the bus requires some research- 916 express from Dongzhimen to Nanhuayuan Sanqu, then H14 from the next stop down the road to the road from where the wall can be accessed. The wall is officially closed but nobody stops you from... More

Good for a more mellow hike. Scenaries are mainly that of nature. Be prepared for slippery grounds when rainy.
