  • Great to see a small piece of significant history. Disabled access may not be the easiest attraction. Stunning scenery.

  • The Great Wall of China, a memorable landmark, is the most popular tourist attraction in China. The Wall has fascinated the minds of many in the world and it is part of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Great Wall is the ultimate tourist destination for sightseeing. People from all over the world visit China to see this exotic architecture because it is one of the most appealing attractions of China. It has its share of fans including those who spread speculations about it being seen from the moon.
  • The old wall has not been modified or repaired. Amazing to walk on the wall and watch the butiful landscape. We hiked on the wall to the part that was repaired. A really nice place to walk and take pictures.
  • Amazing Experience 💕
  • If you only have one chance to go to the Great Wall, choosing Jiankou is the most worthwhile. This is the real Great Wall, and you can truly feel the greatness of ancient civilization. Of course, Jiankou is also the most precarious, and animals cannot climb over in many places. So you must have an experienced tour guide. We chose Great Wall Adventure Club (You can search on Google), and the guide Oliver took us through places where many people were afraid to go. Bravo!
  • hire a local guide to help you if you need- we didn't hire one and then got lost, we still managed to climb on the great wall after almost 3 hours climbing in the rocks and woods. Besides that, it's very worthy to pay a visit, excellent views, it's the highlight of the trip!
