The sight of the Great Wall is an eternal memory to those men who built it, often to their own peril. It is essential to see it and attempt to climb it. As an older visitor, I didn't get too far - about 700 metres...More

It is little more than an hour journey from Beijing. There is entry fee of 40 RMB and took around 2 hours to climb two towers and explore nearby area. You can make this trip faster and cover it in a half day by hiring...More
There are various places you can see and climb the Great Wall. We visited this section on a group tour early October arriving early to try and beat the crowds. Luckily we were only trying to compete with 100’s of people. By the time we...More
Juyong Pass went beyond expectation. It is such an ancient historical place, and it was such a thrill to actually walk there. We went in the afternoon, so avoided the morning rush. The climbs were quite difficult, but there were some easier activities. Pavilions, ramparts,...More
You cannot miss the Great Wall of China. It is iconic. For me it was the highlight of my visit to China. After climbing three sections, I was exhausted, but the views were fabulous. The steps are of uneven heights and handrails are not always...More
Everyone in the world has heard of The Great of China. I walked on it today - and it was quite tough. I have climbed Snowdon (in Wales) within the last twelve months and this was steeper/tougher.
Nevertheless, I had a great day climbing as...More
Great chance to walk such a famous section of the wall. Our tour got us there early in the day to avoid the crowds which was a very good call.
We climbed the right side...prob as bly the easier but still a challenge given sections...More
We were so lucky to have great weather and blue skies when visiting - the walk was a lot more difficult than expected, but we could manage a few levels and can now say we have 'walked the wall'. Such a feeling of history, quite...More

From Chong wen men, take Beijing Subway (Di Tie) Line 2 (either the inner circle or the outer circle, one is 8 stops one is 10 stops) to Xi zhi men, change to subway Line 13 (5 stops) to Xi er qi, then change to subway Changping Line (9 stops) to Changping. Take Exit A, at Changping Nan Da Jie but stop, take bus 870 or 655 for 3 stops to Deng Zhuang, change to bus 919 or 879, which should take you to Juyongguan Great Wall (information from Beijing Public Transport website, checked on 3 April 2018, don’t think the site has an English version). Hope you will find this useful. Public transport in Beijing has been improved/changed dramatically. New bus lines are opening and old ones are discontinued or combined all the time.

Been to Badaling once and Jurong Pass three times. I found the Jurong Pass part of the wall much easier, quieter and nicer. You can easily walk up to the beginning of the climb and then decide how far you want to go or not go up at all. You still can get some good pictures even at the bottom of the climb. The first time we went to Badaling in 1988, I was so afraid that I would get knock down by the crowds, but not at Jurong Pass. My sister who had a stroke a couple of years back took a few steps on our last trip there (Nov. 2017) and she was happy. Or, if you go to the restrooms there, after you are done, you could just walk over to the wall and then walk down.

It depends on the time of day you visit. We were on a tour and we got up at 4 in the morning to visit the wall. We were there early and it was rather relaxing visit, we then had a coffee at the bottom at about 11 o-clock. As we came down the last couple of hundred meters it got very busy and whilst having the coffee the wall looked like the entrance to a major sporting event.
So if you get there early you can reach the top and back if you are fit, but would not have time to visit the shop at No 10 and defiantly would not be able to take in the views. If you get there later then there is no way.
