5 Star for a good reason, spectacular. You could not even get to this section of the Wall before when I visited in 2010. The new chair lifts make this possible. Spectacular views, spectacular Great Wall sections.

I would recommend gong up by cable car and down with toboggan. They are at different pints in the Wall and will save you from covering the same area twice. That might be slightly more expensive but may be the best option... More

I dont think it will be cheap doing it as a private trip, the bus tours are more reasonable but are at set times so given the times you want to travel it will probably be your only option. Traffic in Bejing is really bad... More
