A very peaceful day trip on wonderfully restored section of the Great Wall!! I don't believe the area is promoted too much for tourism because of the proximity to the North Korean border, but it is well worth the effort if you are in that part of China. It is a nice walk but has some very steep sections with... More

Never knew this was here. Not crowded as early AM, which is recommend. The walk is quite hard in places, but saying that we had a 86YO (very fit for his age) do the whole walk. Beautiful views from the top.

The wall is not the best section for visiting - didn't look or feel very authentic but when you get to the last section you can see across the Yalu river to the DPRK and just how close it is at some points. If you have a clear day you can see the towers of Dandong on one side of... More

Authenticity is always an issue with the Great Wall, so we decided not to be bothered by this and go because of the beautiful views and, of course, to visit this magnificent landmark. There are buses going to the wall (4yuan) at the bus station in front of the station (numbers in the 100, 400 and 500's), though the buses... More

This is one of the lesser-frequented sections of the Great Wall, making it much more enjoyable, in my eyes. There are still some groups of tourists that arrive by bus, but they are fewer in number than at the Beijing wall sections, and if you come fairly early you can avoid them altogether. The Wall itself includes some steep sections,... More

I know this is debatable as to any of it's authenticity but still worth the adventure. It's a real workout thought. much steeper than the Beijing version. Coolest part is looking into NK.

This section had few tourists and allowed the opportunity to take in the sites and picturesque views as you climbed the steep ascent to the top of the mountain. The towers and stairs are all in good condition. It may be best to start at the main entrance to climb the wall gradually and avoid the end with the almost... More

I've never been to the Great Wall and don't know if I will get the chance to see other, more photographed parts. But, at least I can say I've been on the Great Wall, and it was nice (although cold) to do it without hoards of tourists to contend with. It was actually pretty deserted except for our and a...

We looked up buses on Baidu maps and took the 214 bus there. It took us to a village near by and we walked 40 minutes to get to the wall. There are probably better bus options to get there. We were the only ones on the wall which was cool. From the stuff stored at the watchtower it looks... More

Jan 31 In contrast to the section of the Great Wall near Beijing, this easternmost section has no pomp, no hucksterism of barkers and booths selling the same trinkets, and no people. Upon seeing the entrance I was underwhelmed. Of course this section is for the tourist. It has been repaired and made to look original. If you're going to... More
