Literally and figuratively it was the high point of our tour. Out of the 30 of us 6 reached the 12th Fortress which is the last destination on this climb. At the 11th fortress you can get a gold medal (30 RMB) etched with your name and date for the achievement. Should keep 1/2litre water bottle as the climb can... More

A great place to tour. Lots of info here to learn about history, culture and life style of ancient China. It is highly recommend to hire a private ride with local taxi service and must go early in the morning to avoid traffic and large crowd.

I have always wanted to stand on the Great Wall. This location offers amazing views and a real sense of the history. Be careful, the steps are uneven and can be difficult at parts. Was there in Nov and it was extremely cold and windy (dress warm!) It is absolutely worth the trek.

Because I was part of a tour group I really only had 45 minutes so I hiked up to the East Mountain Archery tower. There was a souvenir shop there and I so badly needed a ice cream to reward myself. It was the best part of my trip, I had to come to enjoy the great wall. It is... More

Visiting the Great Wall is a must do when in China. There are different sections of the wall that can be visited, so ensure you do a bit of research to find out which ones are more suitable to your circumstances (time, fitness condition, accessibility, etc.). This section of the wall does have a very steep set of steps, but... More

The Great Wall was one of the items on my bucket list. I am glad to have checked it off, even though I doubt this particular location is the most scenic in the entire 10,000 lis of its length. The advantage, of course, is that it is the nearest section of the wall to Bejing, so that tour companies can... More

We joined a tour and our guide, Sarah, who speaks very good English, recommended Juyong Pass instead of the tourists infested Badaling. She first sounded us if we would like to climb up the steps or take the cable car up, knowing that we are trekking up, she recommended a less known and quieter option--Juyong Pass, which is also a...

Going to walk/experience the Great Wall is a must do if in Beijing. Seeing pictures of this area just doesn't do it justice. This is a must do if in China. There are lots of tourist market stalls/people trying to sell you trinkets on the way up but once you get on the walk experiencing its vastness is something you... More

This place is less touristy than the other sections of the wall. So, there are usually a lot less people and you can enjoy the scenery a little bit more. From the upper fortifications, you could see smog hovering over Beijing (in the distance). As the winds changed, the smog started to roll through the valley. It was kind of... More

This was part of a package with ChinaTour.com and the highlight of my trip. I love the views and the historical aspect of being able to say I've been to the Great Wall. We opted to climb the "harder side" to the left as we were told it had better views at the top. Most of our group did the... More
