Bringing light stroller is fine. You need to walk up to cable car station from car park. Up on great wall certain areas are flat.

It's $20USD for the package .... People over 60 are banned from riding ... so if you think you can do it, get your guide to get the tix for you and when you get to the toboggan down, just go for it.

To do it properly allow 2 hours to get to the top from tower 14 to tower 23 and an hour to come down to Tower 6. Hard work up but well worth it - best part of my trip
