Jinshanling Great Wall was my favourite part of our trip to China. It's well worth the three-hour drive from Beijing to see the incredible views and beautiful surrounding countryside. As regards the difficulty of the walk, I would say it is manageable for anyone who...More

This is one of the quietest sections of the Great Wall, and one of the more challenging in terms of uneven ground, limited retaining walls to the side, and some very steep bits along the way. The views are spectacular, and it's a huge bonus...More
