Not well-maintained
Jul 2016 • Family
Tips:
- Better to go there via Taman Panorama, enters the Lobang Jepang, then exit to the street, look for the red stone "janjang koto gadang" then walks for approx 10 mins then you'll find the cable bridge and the great wall across it

The site is not well-maintained, a lil bit dirty although there will be a "dana sukarela" on the entrance.

Just an OK effort from thw govt to mimiciking the Chinese Great Wall.

Another tips: better if you go there in the morning as its not to hot to climb to the top.

Good Idea of Attraction But Not Well Managed
Jun 2014 • Family
Janjang Saribu meaning 1000 steps ladder. It is an attraction near Sianok Canyon Bukittinggi, connecting Bukik Apik panorama and the Sianok River in the valley. The view from Panorama was terrific but in the down side was well managed. The toilets were out of order.

Creative and beautiful

This miniature of China's great wall is made as a bridge between Bukit Tinggi and the Village of Koto Gadang, dividing through the beutiful Sianok Canyon.
Most of the kids in the village is walking through the uphills and downhills of the canyon before this bridge is happening to get to school in the city. Which means hours of walking each morning and afternoon, By the great wall. the trip between the village and the city is only around less than an hour.

The view itself is breathtaking. You can see beautiful the Sianok Canyon all along the journey.
However since this bridge is made by the village people, it seems that the infrastructure is not well maintained and managed. .
