A part of the Great Wall away from the more popular tourist sites on this magnificent bit of construction. Wonderful views, tremendous scenery. Windy and quite cool in November, so dress in layers for the trip and the walk. The way it envelopes the countryside and mountains of the area is a sight to behold. It's a good pull up... More

The view is amazing, you can see the wall running along the top of the hilly country with gatehouses situated at various intervals. The climb here is very hard with steep some steep inclines and steps of various heights. Our guide said hundreds of thousands of workers died building the wall and were buried within the wall

I was not able to climb that so steep, I just made it to the 1st station because it's so cool and windy but so great experience.

Less touristy than I expected... For a change. Loved the picturesque scenery despite the very cold temperature. Very glad to have come to this place. Another one of my Bucket list crossed off.

We visited in November 2016, we expected temperatures of minus 2 degrees, but were really lucky that it was about 7 degrees, so that you could take a layer off once you warmed up from walking. From the bus car park you can go left up the really steep section, or right up the longer section of Wall, which by... More

My husband and I visited the Great Wall at Juyong Gaun Pass, as part of our Nexus Holiday tour. For us the Great Wall was definitely the highlight of our China trip! The views were amazing and sheer size of the wall was breathtaking! The climb itself was much harder than expected with the steps varying in size and some... More

Visited the Great Wall at Juyong Pass as a part of a tour. All I can say is"spectacular"! We climbed the steep side of the pass which was tough but well worth the effort as the view is breathtaking. I couldn't recommend this for those with health issues as the climb is taxing.

It was drizzling when I was there, but it still felt special. It's the Great Wall !! The climb up was tiring but the journey down was tougher on your knees, as the steps was uneven and quite high from step to step. But it was a great feeling, visiting the Great Wall of China and checking that box off... More

It was autumn when we visited, but the foliage has not change colour on this side of the mountain. We managed to catch a glimpse one maple tree with red leaves near the souvenir shop, halfway up the west mountain. 1 hour from Beijing city via bus, it took us an hour to locate the bus station that brings us...

The Great Wall has been on my list of things to see and walk for many years. Really memorable. Walked up to the 3rd station. Fairly tiring but well worthwhile. If you go to China be sure and visit the Great Wall.
