This part of the Great Wall has been renovated and is tourist friendly. There are handrails to hold onto, as you climb up the 953 steps to get to station 8. The views are fantastic and just the thought that you have stepped on and...More

This was a highlight of our tour of China. We spent 3 hours at the wall climbing a very small portion of this 3700 mile marvel. It's a challenge as many of the stairs are uneven, and the handrails are low. Just take your time...More

Spectacular pass of the Great Wall. Steep gradient on both sides of the central gate. Gate and watch tower span the roadway and the river. Most people take the right hand side of the wall as you approach but the left is also spectacular and...More

This is the section that is not littered with too many tourists since you need to climb steep stairs to the fortress. But the view is awesome

The Great Wall is a very challenging wall to climb there are a lot of steps to climb. Pace yourself by doing so many steps at a time until you reach the apex. The steps are different heights some are 6 inches or 150cm high...More

There is a chinese saying that states “Have not been to Great Wall, not a strong person”. This is a clear exaggeration, but the meaning is clear- if you go to China, make sure to visit the Great Wall! However, the Great Wall is gigantic...More

Visited the great wall today. It is a very good climb up uneven stairs. The views from the top are magnificent.

Nexus holidays arranged this day and despite the school holidays and massive crowds we managed to climb 2 sections of the wall. Worth pushing on even though steps are very uneven and hard going.

Been to Badaling once and Jurong Pass three times. I found the Jurong Pass part of the wall much easier, quieter and nicer. You can easily walk up to the beginning of the climb and then decide how far you want to go or not... More
