Great Wall Tours: Badaling, Mutianyu, Jinshanlin and More

Beijing is justifiably the best place to explore the Great Wall. You can visit many different sections of the wall which is one of the largest allures for visiting Beijing. Different sections of the Great Wall present different features and different scenery. Badaling and Juyong Pass are the most visited and most easily accessible part of the Great Wall. However, compared with the Badaling-Juyongguan Tour, other Great Wall Tours cost a little bit more because of their distance and accessibility. The scenery of the Mutianyu Great Wall is extremely beautiful in autumn while the section between Jinshanling and Simatai require more physical stamina to climb. The Water Great Wall Huanghuacheng as well as the miniature of the Great Wall Huangyaguan is becoming more popular with hikers do to the magnificent scenery surrounding these areas.
