Great Wall Travel Tips:
This moderately challenging, 3.5 hours hike offers breathtaking views of the Great Wall at Simatai, snaking along the ridge of the mountains, taking you through crumbling, ancient watch towers along the way. Hiking along this thoughtfully restored section of the Great Wall will transport you back in time to the heyday of imperial China and allow you to get a sense of what it must have felt like to be a Ming Dynasty soldier sent to the northern frontier of the Chinese empire to protect the imperial capital, Beijing, against nomadic invaders. Jinshanling is also famous for being one of the most photogenic sections of the Great Wall and is a fantastic place to take photos. (But now it belongs to the closed state of repair.)
Jinshanling Great Wall has reopened.
