This was easily the highlight of my trip to China, which included all the main touristy sights in Beijing and Shanghai. The whole trip was fun, but this hike was exceptional. My friend and I had Peter as a guide. He was great! He was really knowledgeable, helpful, and patient with all of our picture taking, provided snacks in the middle of the hike, and ordered us a delicious lunch at the end. The scenery was incredible and hiking on the old part of the wall was an amazing experience. I enjoyed the entire trip - including the drive through the mountains to access the hiking trail, the hike up the mountain to reach the wall, and popping up at a watch tower to awe inspiring mountain and old wall views, not to mention the entire rest of the trek along the wall. Highly recommend this trek!
