  • The Great Wall from Jinshanling to Simatai West was the high point of our weeklong trip in China (pun intended). We chose this day hike on the Great Wall because it was more remote than other sections...  more »
  • Our first taste of The Wall was a sunset visit by cable car at Simatai near Gubei Water Town. This day we would hike along 10 kms of the Wall. Doesn't sound so far does it? The wall was steep in place...  more »
  • This is the place to go if you only have 1 day to see the great wall. Restored and unimproved sections of the wall are both here, and the mountains and scenery is absolutely stunning. Recommend taking...  more »

  • 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.
  • The most beautiful place to walk in the Great Wall. My husband and I were totally by ourself and we took amazing photos.
  • Far away from Beijing. 2:30h without traffic jam, but really nice and less tourists. Perfect place...
  • Spectaticular and original view of great wall.......promminent look and real taste of greatness , really worth the visit.
