This doesn’t need reviewing anymore than the Eiffel Tower. It must be seen and climbed. The climb at this part of the wall comes with two choices: pretty steep and very steep. For a glimpse of history that is really impressive for its scope and...More

I visited the Badaling Great Wall and was amazed by the rich history and beauty. I suggest paying for the cable car ride up and back as the climbing can be quite tedious and taxing on your body. I took the cable car and was...More

The climb was worth every step! There is a little store at one of the towers for refreshment and souvenirs. Make sure to wear good shoes and bring a camera for the spectacular views!

Go early. Bring a spare T-shirt and be careful to watch the steps. Most of all enjoy the experience as it is something out of this world. One to strike off the bucket list!

The view there is very nice but it is too crowded. Took the cable car to the North 7th tower and hiked up to the 8th tower. The path is quite steep and it changes from slope to steps and back to slope. Remember to...More

We had to wait about 20 minutes to go up. It was crowded during our visit. Many buses of sightseers had arrived shortly before us. The wall is truly a “Great Wall.” We spent about 90 minutes walking on the wall and view its surroundings....More

We went on a day trip to the Great Wall. You do not need to book a tour. Hotels give you available bus options.

David. The Great Wall is a very big day on its own. Not sure about the combination. Good Luck. Hope you find one.

Our tickets were bought thru Viking cruises. There was a ticket center there on site. You’d need to buy both the ticket to get up as well as to use the funicular to go down. Enjoy your trip-it’s outstanding!
