Top FAQs for Great Wall

Show/Hide all
When is the best time to visit the Great Wall?
Well-restored parts in good condition and equipped with convenient facilities like Mutianyu and Badaling, are suitable for travelers to visit all year round. You can appreciate the different scenery in different seasons. It is suggested to visit some parts with less maintenance, such as Simatai, Jinshanling, Jiankou, or Badaling's ruined part in spring, summer and autumn (from April to October).
Which is the best part of the Great Wall?
Mutianyu is the best part for family tours. You can easily get up and down by cable car and have a better experience with fewer crowds; Jinshanling is the most popular part to experience a hiking route because of its stunning scenery; Simatai is your only choice if you want to have a special night tour on the wall; If you are an experienced hiking enthusiast, Jiankou will never let you down.
How long does it take for walking on the wall?
Usually, it takes about 2-3 hours to climb up and have a leisurely walk. If you take one of our private Great Wall hiking tours, you will be escorted all the time and the visiting time can be adjusted to your own pace.
Is it safe for the kids and the seniors to visit?
Popular sections like Mutianyu and Badaling are not very steep, and certainly safe to travel for kids and seniors. Besides, cable cars, slides, handrails and barrier-free facilities are available in the Mutianyu section that we highly recommend.
Which section is the best for hiking?
Jinshanling is the most recommended part for hiking. Although it is not completely restored, the scenery is unique and beautiful, and it is relatively safe to hike along the wall (about 3 hours) for most travelers in good health. Jiankou is only suitable for experienced hikers as it's the most challenging and strenuous part.
What should I prepare?
It's recommended to wear strong, comfortable shoes, apply sunscreen, and take sunglasses. Prepare snacks, food, and enough water in advance, strong in case there's barely any shop around. There are many vendors selling goods at Mutianyu and Badaling, but it's better to prepare everything by yourself if you plan to visit Jinshanling, Jiankou, and other sections.
