The best experience of our time in China. Once you are on the wall - at the first tower - you will be truly amazed at the beauty and wonder of this place. I was taken by the shear grandeur of it all. Be prepared to walk, climb and crawl and take your time. Remember it isn't about how you start it's about how you finish. Stop along the way and appreciate the views on both sides because it will actually change as you go. We had a guide and also there are volunteers who live in the area who will join you on the hike. They are very kind and friendly and are only asking you to buy something from their backpacks (postcards, trinkets). Jinshanling is a great place to start because there are fewer people on the wall in this location. So you are not fighting so many tourists. While there are shops before you begin your hike, I'd suggest packing some protein bars or other suitable food and water.
