What You Can See at Jinshanling Great Wall
Unlike Badaling and Mutianyu, seldom repair work was implemented at the Jinshanling Great Wall since its last massive construction work during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). Therefore, this section still maintains the original look and reveals a beauty of desolation. As well, Jinshanling can offer you great shots with ramparts winding their way over the mountain ranges and watchtowers in various styles densely distributed along the wall. While hiking, our guide will show you the bricks carved with characters, especially along the eastern segment of Jinshanling, which is another highlight of the Jinshanling Great Wall.

    The Simatai West to Jinshanling tour was exciting and mixed with fatigue and meaning. I was so proud that I could finish hiking from Simatai West to Jinshanling Great Wall smoothly. There were 3 famous watchtowers along our trip and all the landscape was beautiful with different features. Overall, this trip was fruitful with the warm explanation of our guide and we received attentive services form every team worker of TCG.

    Choosing a reliable travel company is important for a wonderful trip. TCG did an excellent job of arranging for us an exciting one-day Simatai West to Jinshanling tour! Our guide was interesting and very experienced in introducing the stories of the Great Wall. We all learned a lot during this memorable hiking! We were completely happy with this trip, and I had recommended it to my friends who wanted to climb the Great Wall.

    It was tiring to hike from Simatai west to Jinshanling Great Wall, but our guide suggested that we should see more scenery so that we would forget our exhaustion. The view from the Great Wall was truly breathtaking. If you guys are in good physical strength, the one-day Simatai to Jinshanling Great Wall tour would be a good choice for exploring the splendid Great Wall!

    Our guide was extremely informative, giving us plenty of historical information about the Simatai and Jinshanling Great Wall. My father and I learned a lot and we had fun on the 1 day Simatai to Jinshanling Great Wall tour, but the hiking was really challenging!

    The 1-day Simatai to Jinshanling Great Wall tour was a worthy trip and was my second travel with TCG! They were as excellent as ever. The driver was punctual to pick me up and the guide tried his best to take good care of everyone and offered a wonderful Great Wall trip for us! Thumb up for you!

    We’d like to express our gratitude to Candy for her superb explanation and companion. As this group was a small one so she was able to look after everyone well. We helped each other and had a good time while hiking. A happy and memorable trip!

    The 1 day Badaling Great Wall hiking tour was my family trip and first visit to China. The guide Sara was very helpful and friendly and gave us an engaging introduction of Beijing and each scenic spot. We’d like to thank her for taking many beautiful photos for us.

    Thank TravelChinaGuide for their efficient and economical organization which helped us to hike on the Great Wall. I was so proud that I insisted on finishing the hiking since it was so hard in particular when we climbed some unrepaired parts. The thoughtful service rendered during the trip. An in all, I had a good time on this trip and would recommend your company without question!
