  • Took a trip to see where the great wall wall starts. It takes a lot of effort to climb the wall but it is worth it to stand on such a historical site.  more »
  • CA. 10 km outside the city lies the ticket office. Pretty isolated, best with a taxi. We found it a nice piece of wall in a green environment. At some point you'll come to a guard tower with an iron ladder climb, which is where most people turn around. Don't: we came to the end walked (few kilometers only), so along the cable car station on. You come on the end at a very old little convent with a beautiful temple dedicated to GuanYin. Return trip 3 hour walk.
