Take the cable car, for a cost of 80 Chinese dollars it's worth every bit as the walk along the wall to the end (as far as the reconstructed section) is a hike and then there's the stair climb, be aware that the walk to the cable car is lined both sides with hawkers and pedlars trying to sell t shirts and junk items at inflated prices. The view from the wall was is stunning, we were there in April with the surrounding trees in blossom which added to the photos we took. So glad we walked it. The very end section is steep steps which is a climb but again worth the view. Start early as there is a crowd.

Compared to BaDalin, this is a much quiter part of teh Great Wall. Worth to travel the extra time (maybe 40 minutes more) and try to be there early morning. At around 9/10 am all the tour buses from Beijing arrive.

Walking along the wall just like it doesn't a ending point. Just amazing and can say this is the best place to visit in Beijing as well as China.

This was the best option to see the Great Wall for our family. We loved the guard houses and the views. The cable/chair lift was helpful to get up to the wall. Two of our grandchildren were with us on this trip and they thought The Great Wall was their most favorite part of our trip to China. They could have walked on and on!
I was a little disappointed to find the restrooms to be on the unclean side for such a popular tourist sight. The tackiness of the vendors was also not what I expected, but the Wall itself made up for that.
