We booked to hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu with Zhang (John) from hereisbeijing, so glad that we did! You get dropped at a ‘wild’ section of the wall, and hike to the restored Mutianyu section, where you can walk down, get a cable car or jump on the toboggan. The hike is fine, it gets you breathing but nothing anyone of average fitness couldn’t manage!

John was awesome, spoke fantastic English, made sure we had all the information we needed, answered any questions on anything we had to ask on China in general and just couldn’t do enough for you. Definitely worth getting in touch if you want to see the wall (check his website or +86 136 8113 9171)

Visited Huangyaguan for a daytrip from Tianjin. It wasn't that convenient but highly recommended if you have time in Tianjin. Do note that there are buses that head straight to Huangyaguan from Tianjin via Tongsha bus station. These buses depart at fixed timings though, there should be a 710 and 1010 bus in the morning. Overall journey takes about 2.5hrs.

I had expected the place to be touristy but it wasn't so I had to engage someone to bring me up to the top to hike down. The great wall was quiet and I dont think I saw more than 10 people during my hike. Total distance was 2.4km and would take you about 1.5 to 2 hrs to finish.Took lots of nice photos as there was nobody around at all

Going back to Tianjin was troublesome but try to catch a bus to bring you to the Jizhou Passsenger station and grab a bus to Tianjin.

Once english speaking woman on the street offers to visit her pub, beware coming there.
The pub probably has double prices, the most expensive offer to foreign visitors is provided only, from the board on the wall (no prices there).
Usual meal for very unusual prices, which you can see later only, after ask the bill.
In more detail, we had lunch for 4 people (4 meals), almost 800 CNY (RMB). See the photo of the pub and beware going to "Restaurant Coffee Beer" pub.

Ran from the entrance of the Great Wall to Yin Yang Square twice for about 6 K on this section of the Great Wall for the Great Wall Marathon in mid May. I also walked this section of the Great Wall the day before the race.

It took about 2 hours by bus from our hotel in Beijing to reach the Great Wall at Huangyaguan. This section of the Great Wall was in very good shape for walking. There are several steep sections with many steps to climb up and down. Comfortable shoes are highly recommended. Being in good physical condition would also be a benefit. There were also vendors on the Wall selling refreshment and souvenirs. There are no toilets on the Wall itself.

This Great Wall is a little bit inconvenient, people have to drive cars or order taxis to arrive there. However, I truly think this amazing place deserves it. Unlike the Great Wall near Beijing where always crowded with people, travelers can enjoy the trip in the great(quiet haha)atmosphere here, which I really cherish and adore.

I completed the Great Wall (half) Marathon on this part of the wall in May this year. The wall itself & the views are just spectacular & it was such a privilege to have the opportunity to experience this beautiful place. The surrounding villages/township was also a hightlight for me.... the people are very friendly and kind. I left with wonderful lifelong memories.

Amazing experience running the Great Wall Marathon here. I absolutely recommend it!

It's STEEP though. Take it slowly and be sure stay hydrated in summer.

The wall is well paved in this section.

We booked a private tour from Tianjin Port to the Huangyaguan section of the Great Wall with John from Here is Beijing. We had to change the date when our ship's arrival date was changed. The ship docked at a different berth to the one we had told John but he still found us. He spoke good English and drove us 2 hours to our destination. He supplied us with 2 local cell phones and water for two couples and made sure we knew where to go. He also supplied us with a map.
It was a great part of the wall to see as there were not many tourists in this area.
The views were magnificent the higher we got.
There were markets at the bottom selling various nuts and spices.
We had plenty of time to enjoy our walk and John was waiting for us on our return.
John's service was so good that we offered to tip him when we got back but he refused to take more money than we'd agreed on.
I recommend doing a private tour with Here is Beijing.

Although it was National Day week, we went there about 7:00 AM and we almost had the Great Wall all to ourselves. It is a heck of a climb, although very beautiful and well preserved. I recommend taking the shuttle to the top and walking down, and up and down to the bottom. The last part was the final descent and I really felt for those going the other way as they were totally exhausted when the reached the top. It was very steep and a bit rugged in places.

Once in a lifetime experience. Really recommend this. The facilities like toilets are horrible and not much to eat but the race was very well organized and they really looked after us
