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.

    I felt so lucky to found TravelChinaGudie planning such a good Great Wall Hiking tour. The hiking route was excellent and the scenery was also stunning along the way. If my parents and I hiked on our own, we would make great efforts to finish this hiking. Our guide Lily was very helpful and told us many engaging stories about the Great Wall. We definitely had a good time. Thank TravelChinaGuide and Lily for making this trip so wonderful and impressive.

    Really great - I feel very lucky to have had this experience.

    - I went to the Jinshanling section which I think was a good choice. It’s farther but it was not at all crowded.

    - My tour guide William was really excellent. Really well informed and personable.

    - Was picked up on time at my hotel. Driver was professional and the car was very comfortable.

    - Lunch was awesome!

    Our trip to Simatai and Jinshanling Great Wall was full of joy. The guide Tina gave us excellent interpretations. From her introduction, we learned that the Jinshanling Great Wall was famous for the paradise of photography lovers. Because it maintained its original appearance and the landscape there was special. It revealed the vicissitudes for thousands of years of Chinese history. The grand scenery was worth our hard hiking! Really wonderful experience!

    We joined the one-day small group Great Wall last week. We first climbed the Simatai Great Wall and then hiked the Jinshanling Great Wall. The two sections all had their different beauty and characteristics. I preferred Mutianyu Great Wall because it was well preserved and could reflect its ancient charm. It was an unforgettable tour! Looking forward to having an opportunity to visit other sections of the Great Wall.
