What a view of the Great Wall, and steep climb of uneven steps. Only try it if you have the physique and stamina to climb close to 35 to 60 floors. Once you reach to height, the view and panorama is outstanding and worth the aching legs and body parts that you will experience for the next few days. We... More

This section of the wall is quite close to Beijing. It is a fortress on the wall so it is possible to make a round trip without backtracking if you give yourself about half a day. Some sections are very steep and it is a strenuous climb. Also there are sections with no handrails which can be a little unnerving... More

Our tour came to this wall section because it was a holiday and this is less crowded. We went to the section that is a downward hike then it climbs up across the highway. This is a little more walking but the best choice...much less crowded. The air was a problem but the wall was great. Lots of picture taking.... More

High on my bucket list, this was well worth the drive to Juyong Pass. Very clear on the day visited, this is just amazing and should be a lock on your Beijing trip. Be warned, it is a very steep climb in this area, but not to be missed. The highlight of my trip.

This area of the Great Wall is nicely restored. It looks like a large loop walk might be possible, but I am not sure. The drop-off area has washrooms, gift shop and a snack shop. There are also a few information panels. My wife and I visited this location on a cruise ship excursion. We had two hours to spend... More

Had 2 hours here on a Nexus tour. Climbed to level 9.5 where there is a souvenir shop! A couple on the tour reached tower 13 but 9.5 in the time allowed is still hard work. LOTS of people climbing. Once you start you do need to keep going to the next level with no more than a quick photo... More

This was a first time visit to this section of the Great Wall, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Partly, this was due to the weather (temperatures in the low 60's, no rain) and partly the manageable length of this segment of the Great Wall. We climbed up to the end of this section (it deadends at the top) but I... More

We were here late March with all the crowds, at the start of the climb you could only take 1 step and had to wait as there were so many people trying to get down and up and people just pushing through, once we got up further, the crowds lessened, it's a shame that some of the little fortes are...

Make sure you are in great physical condition before you attempt to climb to the top in either direction. Not recommended unless you are ready to climb up a mile of very steep steps. Take water with you. If you stop at the coffee shop it is less expensive to drink beer than coffee. Bring an umbrella for rain or... More

Although it was the end of March, we had an unexpected view of the wall, as it snowed the night before. The steps are high and the climb is not easy, especially with ice on them. I cannot pride to have climbed very high. It was also misty and the view was limited but it had the advantage of being... More
