“great wall, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

even if you are not fit enough to climb the massive steps it is still a great place. there is a lovely coffee shop where you can sit and absorb the atmosphere while you wait for the more energetic travelers to return.

“Great Wall of China - Juyong Pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This section of the Great Wall is great for a visit to the attraction. It has sections to walk, great photo ops, and if you are looking for some exercise, it certainly has that! Parts of the paths seem to almost go straight up! It was not crowded and there was a good amount of places to sit and take a rest, if you needed one. There are spartan facilities, but your are about 50 miles outside of Beijing.

“Beautiful with a Feeling of Accomplishment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

This section of the Great Wall requires physical stamina to make it all the way around. The trip is well worth it. It's a great part of the wall to climb, but you don't feel like you are out in nature as much as some of the other locations around Beijing. For some of the trip up and down you can still see and hear the highway below.
