As stated in other reviews already, one is following paved tracks and views are ok but not spectacular, it’s still a nice short hike. Especially nice for couples is the stand selling locks you can engrave with your name and a message and lock them...More

West great wall is one of the oldest part of great wall of China. These wall played great roll in the chines history and Silk route history. I loved climbing to the top and I recommend every one to hike to the top.

A memorable site and location to see! Takes a couple of hours to stroll through at a relaxed pace. Nothing much beyond a few explanatory signs.

This is a Disney version of the Great Wall. Not connected to the Wall, totally modern, you have fake camels and travelers along the Wall. You just climb up and down. Not worth the detour and entry tickets. Better go to the first tower or...More
