Any tips for the Great Wall Hiking?
Great Wall Hiking at Mutianyu: This section of the Great Wall is suitable for all travelers. It is relatively less crowded in travel high season so you can get better travel experience here. For young people, you may hike up to the Great Wall or take chairlift up and luge down. For seniors, the round-way cable car would be the best way to save energy.
Great Wall Hiking at Badaling: There are two directions hiking on Badaling Great Wall. The southern part has less people but you need to return the same way. Also, the line is shorter. The northern part is more popular and has more people of course. It is suggested to avoid Badaling section during the peak season or holidays. Mutianyu or Jinshanling Great Wall is more recommended for the period.
Great Wall Hiking at Jinshanling: The moderate hiking from west section of Simatai to Jinshanling takes about 6 kilometers (4 miles) and 3 hours. There are some steep stairs and unrepaired sections in between, so we recommend only young and middle-aged travelers doing this trip. It is for sure a paradise for hikers and shutterbugs. Get prepared with comfortable walking shoes, and we will provide enough bottled water.
