Climbing up the mountain on this more than 700 years old wall is really hard work for your legs but you get an undescribable expierience for this UNESCO world heritage. It´s an absolute must have been there which you´ll never forget.

No cable car. Only can walk up. A very steel walk up stair, not advisable for old folk, people who having knee problem, very challenging when going down. However, there will be e very nice and peaceful view when reaching to the top. Amazing!!

We visited a section of The Great Wall at Juyongguan. This is a well-restored section of the wall and due to its location in the mountains, it involves many stairs at a grueling angle and very few level sections. There is no cable car and...More

I read somewhere that one path has some sort of shop along the way with a certificate that can be purchased indicating that you climbed the great wall. Does anyone know what side, and if one side has more souvenirs to purchase than the others? I also read that one side has ice cream. Thanks!

My tour group is visiting the Badaling section, and have offered to drop me off at the Juyong section on the way back to Beijing. Does anyone know how to get from Juyong to Beijing without paying a fortune? Are there taxis there if I get stuck? Would love to do it but with the language barrier I might not make it back to Beijing! Thanks!!
