  • 在熟悉了八达岭这样的景区长城之后,你需要去慕田峪或者金山岭这样真正的长城看一看。 报团去的,除了我、导游、司机之外都是洋人。或许对于北京户外爱好者,金山岭有点远,报团去有点奢侈,周一这个时间去也不太合适。 金山岭长城的修复工作恰到好处:既有规格,又不失野性。此次去玩赶上一个好天气,既可以眺望塞北的群山,也可以回头望望京城的锦绣大地。 当地农民卖的纪念品做工较粗糙,没有选购。他们一直建议我购买,我只...  more »
  • There are several possibilities to manage the hike. For the sportive people is to do it right, sufficient water and sturdy shoes is not redundant.

  • Less crowded than the other parts of the Great Wall but quite a distance away. Best to go with a tour agency especially if you are unable to speak Mandarin
  • Started at the South Gate. Had a great hike of a couple of hours during the late Autumn season in mid November 2016 where the cable car service stopped, and we made the walk right up to the finishing point at the East Gate. It was very windy and the segment closer to Simitai was wild/unrepaired and simply love the way it was left untouched. There were very few tourists, this itself is a major plus point. The hike is moderate in difficulties as compared to Badaling and Mutianyu. If you are not a person who gives up easily, Its all worth the hike.
  • A really beautiful area. Even without the wall it's still a gorgeous trip to the mountains, and climbing the wall was amazing. Not too crowded. This is not recommended for those who are not very mobile. Those who have difficulty with stairs are advised against attempting this section.
  • It is definitely a great place, not only because of its scenery, but also the memory I shared with my family when I left from Beijing to North America.
  • The most beautiful place to walk in the Great Wall. My husband and I were totally by ourself and we took amazing photos.
