Chairman Mao once said: “He who has not been to the Great Wall is not a true man”. Getting to that red watch tower hopefully made the Chairman proud on this day. Great view from the top too.

We visited the wall at the Juyongguan Pass area. Despite having seen parts of the wall on TV programmes where people were strolling along relatively flat sections – this was not it! This is an incredibly steep stone staircase with steps of differing depths. There is a handrail virtually all the way to the top. It wasn’t a sunny day when we visited, just warm, but virtually everybody was dripping with sweat. It was quite punishing. Obviously you don’t have to go to all the way to the top (this particular section ends at a locked watchtower). I waited at the gift shop whilst my husband continued on until he reached the locked gate. Plenty to see in the gift shop – just about every kind of souvenir you can imagine. You can even buy an “I climbed the Wall” medal with your name on. The shop also sells drinks and ice creams. Back down at the bottom we rewarded ourselves with an ice lolly (5 yuan, compared with 10 yuan at the Forbidden City). All the toilets are “squat style” – remember to take your own toilet roll. It was a three mile round trip, but as we know, not all miles are equal, and my calves were “tweaking” for several days afterwards, but I’d do it all again in a breath.

To see the Great Wall is truly amazing. The history behind the building is incredible. The walk on it is very strenuous though as steps are so uneven. My advice is to just take your time and you will be able to go quite a distance.

Was totally looking forward to the experience of seeing and walking on the Great Wall and was it awesome was a rather warm day so lots of people and I honestly didn’t think how hard it would be the steps are all different sizes and heights that made it fairly hard going up We only made it to the third tower just shows how unfit I am but coming down was even harder as the steps are all the same colour and very hard to judge how far down to the next step is but found coming down sideways was a bit easier It was a totally awesome experience for sure Another thing off my bucket list

I had tears in my eyes when we saw it. Absolutely amazing! Definitely worth the time, money and effort.
