You can access the wall from the south or west entrance. I walked up the south side to the west and walked down into the Confucius Temple. It gives you a good view of the city and a must do while you are there!

Really well preserved wall. Easy to walk, not very tiring. Great views! This wall is surrounding the ancient city of Ping yao. We stayed at the "Jing's residence" in ping yao... a really special and charming hotel really recommendable!!
