The Jinshanling Great Wall was first built in the sixth century, there are 67 watchtowers, all in different styles, at average intervals of 150 meters. Photographers know that the best place to take pictures of the Great Wall is not Badaling or Shanghaiguan, but Jinshanling, which is the best-preserved stretch, so many overseas visitors choose it. People also say that anyone who has climbed Jinshanling is not interested in seeing any other part of the Great Wall, as it retains its original Ming Dynasty outlook, and so vividly reflects the full ethos of that epoch.


  • Enjoy the several hours' hiking on the Jinshanling section, the best-preserved non tourist stretch;

  • Savor up beautiful scenery along the wall and take great pictures;

  • Have a delicious lunch at a local restaurant;
