Enjoy a great wall in China that is not in Beijing

Enjoy a great wall in China that is not in Beijing but rather in Sichuan. You will to make efforts the climb it - doing part of it during half an hour from the start at Luodai should be enough

The Fake Wall of China
Oct 2018 • Couples
We came here on a cloudy Saturday afternoon during National week, after hearing about it through some colleagues.

The journey from Chengdu is long and cramped but when you arrive it does not disappoint. At the base of the hill there are food stalls with Chinese bbq for a very reasonable price (around 2¥ per stick). The wall itself is across 2 mountains and despite being steep is fairly easy to climb and the views are breathtaking. When you reach the top carry on walking a little further (5minutes) and you reach the Golden Dragon Temple which is a traditional temple and is beautiful! Bring some change to throw in the fountain and enjoy an Ice cream/ drink at the top.

Although the tickets for the wall are very cheap at 10¥ we were slightly disappointed to find that the price is one way, in order to come back down the mountain you must either purchase a new ticket or go through the woods. The woods are beautiful but I imagine would be very slippery when wet.

If you’re in Chengdu for a few days it is worth coming here for half a day and then spending the afternoon on Luodai town.

worth a trip
Sep 2017 • Solo
if you're in and around the Chengdu area, this might be a worthy trip. It is nothing like the Great Wall you'll see in Beijing, this is on the western end point of the stretch, and gives you a taste. The challenge here is not to take a car up, but to walk it. 5 inter-station will either wish you stayed in shape, or make you look good in front of your friends. Nothing majestic, but it's still part of the Great Wall

Very impressive great Wall
Apr 2018 • Friends
This great wall has nothing to do with "the Great Wall of China". That said, it's still quite a feat -- both engineering and human. Just as importantly, if offers a magnificent view of the area, including some very impressive statues and a temple along the trail. Definitely worth a visit

'Fake Wall of China' is more stairs than wall
Jun 2018 • Friends
I headed here fully aware of the fact that this wall is NOT part of the Great Wall, but as I am living in Chengdu for 3 months and had seen (or had plans to see) all the other attractions I figured this was worth a trip. I would not recommend this place if you have any kind of time restraints in the area, with the high speed train quickly able to get you to places like Qingcheng, EMei and LeShan this place is most definitely not worth the effort.

If you have seen the actual Great Wall of China then don't waste your time here, if you haven't seen the actual Great Wall of China but have always wanted to then definitely don't waste your time here. The 'wall' is actually mostly stairs, the amazing views that I had read on others reviews were of farmland, and not amazing at all, and the wall isn't very long nor does it have any shelter or seats for you to rest on whilst tackling all of the stairs. The entrance fee is cheap, but is only one way, I'm not sure if the shuttle bus at the top was free or came at an additional cost as my friend and I turned back around to walk back the way that we had come. They stopped us at the gate but as we speak no Chinese they obviously decided it wasn't worth the effort to explain to us that we needed to buy another ticket to go back again, and so after a minute of discussion amongst themselves they simply let us back in.
The only saving grace for the day was that for some reason it was not very crowded, had it been then the 2 hours we spent on there would have been hell, as it was, they were merely a little dull and very hot

Fake, nothing to see
Apr 2018 • Family
After having seen pretty much everything in Chengdu, we decided to visit Luodai. Big mistake. It turns out this wall was built in 2000, and is lined with vendors selling lollipops and syrup cakes. Pay 10 RMB to climb the wall and pay more for barbecued quail on top because you couldn’t possibly have walked 5000 steps for nothing. Two stars because the quail on a stick tasted good. Previous reviews say there are “breathtaking” views from the top, but it was just hills and plants. The three (long, bumpy, non-air conditioned) bus rides from downtown Chengdu made me wonder why we bothered. Spend more time at the ancient town, only two bus rides from Chengdu.

Breathtaking
Jul 2017 • Solo
I was sceptical at first, since I was told it's nothing close you the Wall in Beijing but once I got there it was simply breathtaking. The wall is an impressive 5300 steps or 1200m long. Quite a commitment to go through all of it. It's totally worth it and absolutely rewarding health wise. The Dragon awaits when you reach the top.

Nice Day Trip from Chengdu
Jul 2017 • Solo
The Golden Dragon Great Wall of Luodai is located about 20 minutes outside of the Luodai Ancient Town. I took a small covered scooter to the wall and I wasn't sure if we were going to make it as the hills got pretty steep - but we did.

The wall is as described and while not as discussed impressive as the other Great Wall it is quite the challenge to climb it from one end to the other.

When you reach the end keep going and visit the temple that is just a bit higher than the end of the wall - it's worth it.

I suggest visiting the ancient town first as afterwards my legs were aching - I'm off to get a massage now.

Enjoy!!!
