we had an amazing trip. This trip is not for the faint of heart, it is a real hike. The driver will drop you off with your guide at the end of a narrow winding mountain road. From here you'll have about an hour moderate climb through the woods to get up to the wall. There are several points along the hike where you can see the wall following the ridgeline above.

Once on the wall, you'll follow the ruins up and down with 365 degree views. It is steep at times, and yes, at some times it is very steep, but nothing that a person in average physical condition can't handle. Hiking shoes would be ideal, but I managed in tennis shoes. On our 2 hour walk to the arrow peak, I think we encountered a total of 20 or 30 people. There were several long stretches we had the wall entirely to ourselves. After the arrow peak, the hike is mostly downhill and the wall slowly becomes more restored and the number of tourists you engounter slowly increases. You'll eventually descend to the cut off point for people coming up from the other side. You'll climb over the small wall and quickly experience the large quantities of tourist that took the chair lift up.

Kevin offered us 3 ways down. 1 hike 2 take the chair lift or 3 slide down on the Toboggon. We decided on option 3 even though there as a small incremental cost 80 yaun per person and 40 more minutes of hiking. Toboggon was worth it in my opinon. By the time we arrived there my legs were tired and it was fun to just roll down the hill.

Violet organize the tour via email. She was very responsive as our group grew from 2 people to 6 and then shrunk to 5 people. Pickup was prompt from our hotel lobby. Drive to the wall too about 2 hours. Lunch was good and much appreciated after a long day of hiking. This trip will be more work then other options to the wall, but I don't think you will regret it for one minute.

Bring: camera, good shoes, sunscreen, hat, snack. Guide will provide water - take 2 !

Had a wonderful trip! Great way to see the wall. This was certainly the best direction to walk and seeing the 'wild' part of the wall first gave a great appreciation for the entire thing.
Tougher hike than expected with some very steep sections but the views were amazing! Hiking books would be better than tennis shoes as good tread would be beneficial.
Recommend the trip!
