It was our first visit to Beijing and we had read about the crowds at the other sections of the wall. So we booked a guide for the Jinshanling section and we were not disappointed. Beautiful sections of the wall scale the mountains, relatively empty...More

After visiting the Mutianyu section last year (which was also very good, BTW, and would be my natural first choice from Beijing in terms of accessibility and quality), this year we thought we'd check out the more famous and scenic Jinshanling section. It's further out...More

We went on a nice drizzly day in the summer. it was not that hot and basically our group was the only one in the area. Part of the reason it is not crowded is that this section is a lot harder, especially for someone...More
