Really beautiful hiking route. Perfect for taking fotos and enjoying the view. Good organisation and guide. The hike can be quite challenging, there are many steep stairways.

We had great weather which I'm sure made a big difference. In any event, the experience is practically guaranteed to be one you'll never forget. And if you stay alert and with a little bit of luck, you'll see these amazing birds called the Chinese Pheasant with about a 1.5 metert wing span and a very long, thin tail that fly low, swoop then practically crash land into the trees. Apparently some people who have visited the Great Wall many times have no idea they are even there. But I saw five, and a few other people I met saw some too. So keep your eyes peeled!

This was an amazing experience. The views from the wall were amazing. Enjoyed the hike. Our guide Jen was very personable and helpful.

An excellent day and a great section of the Great Wall to hike! The pick-up spot was convenient and the bus was on time. The ride was pleasant and there was a supply and rest stop along the way. When we reached Jinshanling, we received an orientation and a review of the map. We than had three hours to hike a section of the wall. It was a moderate hike with a few steep up and downs, but nothing too challenging. There was enough time to complete the hike with a few of the faster people having time to extend their hike. There were opportunities along the wall to buy water, beer, ice cream, and souvenirs. This is not a common hiking spot so not at all crowded and excellent photo opportunities!

Highly recommend this hike - while challenging, it is so worth it! Not crowded with great views and you get the chance to go at your own pace. Jen was prompt with pick up and offered facts about the Wall on our drive out. She made sure everyone was prepared and checked in after to see how our experience was.

Great tour if you want to see a less touristy area of the wall. The walking was tough at times but the views were worth it. You need a moderate level of fitness. Jan was a fun and friendly guide, but really you are left to your own devices on the walk. We didn’t mind though as we preferred it.

I wanted a challenging section of the Great Wall and this was exactly what I was looking for. We were able to explore this area at our own pace. The wall is restored in some sections and unrestored in others. The scenery of the wall and the hillsides were spectacular, especially in spring when the trees are flowering.
Our tour guide Jen was very informative about the area and it's history . I especially want to thank her for helping me retrieve my phone when I forgot it on the bus.

The trip was fabulous. The hike is pretty decent so wear proper clothing. Jen was a great tour guide. The hike is pretty much on your own and there were lots of chances to get the perfect photo. I would do this tour again.
