This was the Third Section of the Great Wall we visited during a day trip to Qinhuangdao and it was by far the best. All the tourists had gone to the two easier sections of the wall which left it almost deserted. There are some...More

This attraction is a 5-10 minute taxi from the main Walled City area of Shanhaiguan. It is where the wall makes the 1st traverse up a mountain. Once in, you can either take a cable car to the top, or hike up the wall itself....More

Amazing place. We visited it in peak season (July 2016) and it was almost empty. Go by bus to "First pass under the heaven" and than take taxi (it is not expensive). Buy ticket with chairlift and than go down on wall. It is difficult,...More

Climbing the wall at that place is really a challenge as its slope is amazing. At the top the view pays off the hard walk upstairs.

Worth the trip to get there. The architecture is mesmerizing. Went in the spring and the weather was perfect.

Restored in the early 1990's, this piece of wall is approximately 10 kilometers inland and accessible by public transport (bus). Chairlift runs from the base to the top. Views to the ocean from the top and no crowds.

This has been my favorite spot to visit the Great Wall so far. I've seen 3 other places and this one was a good challenging walk that made me really happy there was a cable car to come back down (also available up), and free...More
