Absolutely one of the greatest experiences you could wish for. We travelled to the Great Wall to Juyong Pass, the day was overcast with a drizzle of rain which kept the temperature very comfortable. just getting there by bus was a very scenic drive through the country side and mountains. The Great Wall meanders through China's northern mountain ranges from the Yellow sea to the Gobi desert a distance of more than 3500 miles. Once you start to climb the wall the scenery is amazing in all directions and you actually come to realise just how incredible the wall is.
You need a hat, water, good shoes are a must and plenty of energy. This particular part of the wall is less crowded which is a bonus . Most people try and get to the 13 towers but believe me its a gruelling walk very steep and the steps are all different sizes which makes it even harder.
I found that its up to the individual as to how far you climb, all different fitness levels, sizes, age ect, it doesn't really matter how far you climb the experience is what counts and the fact that you were just there, so go and experience this amazing wonder of ChinaMore
