Simatai, a section of the Great Wall of China located in the north of Miyun County, 120 km northeast of Beijing, holds the access to Gubeikou, a strategic pass in the eastern part of the Great Wall. It's one of the most untouched section of the...more

We took a tour bus from Beijing to this location. Very nice area to see the wall. There is a bit of a walk from the bus stop area and then a very steep walk up the wall to a place where you can come...More
My favorite Part of the Great Wall near to Beijing. It’ll take around 3-4 hours by car but it is worth it. The town itself you can spend almost a day looking around. The Great Wall here is open (at least when I visited it)...More
Booked this tour through Niko of CHina highlights and was paired with Johnny as the tour guide.
The day hike is great, in October it was warm, you'll need a beanie and a sweater at night as it gets cold and windy. The views are...More
To walk on the wall that we first learnt about at school ( a long time ago ) was so incredible. We could see the wall stretching along the heights long before we got there and had an amazing view of it as we ascended...More
My second visit to the wall .Much quieter here .The views were breathtaking with the wall going into the distance .The whole complex at this site is very well done and really adds to the experience .Would highly recommend
No information I found online before my visit showed this information but I'm just on the bus back and am pretty disappointed. You can only go as far as tower one (by the chain-link bridge) at one end, and then as far as tower 7...More

I stayed at the Water Town Hotel...More
This part of the wall is accessible via Gubei Watertown. A cable car ride up the mountain of about 10 minutes brings instant wonderful views. A walk to the wall, in an uncrowded part which allows you to walk between towers with no high side...More
The Great Wall at Simatai was the highlight of our trip to China. I'm so glad that we chose to do the self guided coach tour and visit the water town. It was a very long day but very enjoyable.
Pre booked on TA, we...More

I don't know how long it is and how long time ☺️ we hiked as far as we could, turned around and hiked back to our starting point. We spend about 7 hours hiking in total. Hiking from the road to the wall takes about 30... More

Not at present. I wanted to watch the sunset but I just missed it as they closed just before sunset. You are allowed entrance for around 2-3 hours, They have time slotted entrances. They shut around 4.30/5pm.
