Unbelievable and amazing site. Please note the steps are not even or level. Every second step are lunges not stepping. In April it was cold and very windy. Need jackets, gloves and touques. Not for people with bad backs, bad knees or bad hearts.

You can’t visit Beijing without visiting the Great Wall, it’s just not done it’s overwhelming in every way there is. The enormity of its size, its vast history, and its breathtaking views are indescribable.

its a long hike, many people usually give up half way.
Make sure you carry a water bottle and not too much of weight (cameras and so on)
comfortable shoes, nothing too warm.
There are also few small shops on the way up the staircases for some snacks and souvenirs too.
Better to visit in weather when its more greener as during winters the lands around the hike up are all brown (no greenery) not the best for photography. The whole area is monitored by CCTV and quite secure however, in china its best practice to carry your backpack to the front (and you'll notice that around, in any city you visit)
Usually in guided tours they offer a photograph in the end of the tour along with a certificate of climbing the wall at a small price.

I hired John with hereisbeijing.com for the Great Wall hike. He drove me and one other hiker to the trailhead at Jiankou and picked us up at Mutianyu at the end of the day. John gave us tons of information about the hike and picked me up right next to my hostel. He was very easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to messages. I highly recommend using John as a driver to the wall! The wild wall portion of the hike was stunning and we saw very few tourists in this section. You need to be relatively fit and have good footwear to do this hike as there are some very steep portions. Definitely worth a visit if you have the time!
