If you are in the Beijing area and you never been to the Great Wall, this is a nice place to go to. When you are going there, plan to go early, because it can be crowded sometimes.

It needs much effort to climb the Great Wall. Be careful there usually are too many people on the site.

Yes the Great Wall is extraordinary. Walk in both directions, take your time. And don't forget to notice how great and beautiful everything is, at least it was for us during the summer.

Absolutely worth it!! The toboggan ride down is an absolute blast. Be prepared for a hike and lots of stairs. If you need a car service I highly recommend (Linda Being Tour Car Service) she's the best!!!!
