A: The sections of the Great Wall closest to Beijing are Badaling and Juyongguan, both are very popular and can be reached easily by expressway. Mutianyu Great Wall is only a bit further, the view at Mutianyu is very special, and the UNESCO officials were convinced and agreed to list it as one of the World Heritage.
B: Jinshanling–Gubeikou section, runs for more than 15 kilometers and has more than 50 watchtowers. These sections are much wilder, unique and less crowded. With the extra beauty of being in a weathered, partly crumbled state, the sections you visit today will fulfill your Great Wall dreams.
C: There will be a long time walking during this tour, we highly recommend you wear sport shoes and clothes which are suitable for outdoor activities.
