We visited from our cruise ship docked in Tianjin port. 3 hour drive but worth it. Had the section almost to ourselves. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Awesome history and culture trip not far from Beijing.
Take your camera and hiking attire as some parts are steep.

I was taken aback when I arrived at The Great Wall, the fact that this structure was made by man so long ago and is still intact is beyond impressive. The wall goes as far as the eyes can see. The walk on the wall was tough at various points, it's amazing to think that people once walked these walls on a daily bases and had to protect it from people trying to invade the lands. It gives you a feel good vibe just being able to say that you walked amongst history.

We arrived via cruise ship in Tianjin and decided to visit this part of the wall as we were being escorted into Beijing, and are so glad that we did.

It is nearly a 2 hour drive from the port to the wall, which ended up adding about 1 hour of our overall drive to Beijing, but was so worth it. We stopped near the wall and enjoyed eating at a local countryside restaurant where the food is tasty and plenty and very cheap before walking the wall.

This section of the wall is not crowded at all and photos of it rival the ones that we took at other areas of the wall.

Glad we decided to take this detour on our trip from Tianjin to Beijing!

Two hours from tianjin city. It has less tourists compared to beijing area however you will not see much of the Great Wall. It is just a smaller portion of the wall. On the exit, a market of food and souvenirs before you actually get out of the wall. Beijing Great Wall areas are still worth seeing.

Beautiful place to go to. Visited when it was snowing, so going up the stairs was challenging specially with the snow it was quite slippery. It's just sad that you see some tourists eating and just throwing wrappers everywhere.

Our most memorable visit was in early January, taking a visitor. Previous visits had been in spring and autumn, when the weather is mild. In January, there were only about five other people there and the snow began to fall, transforming the scene into something even more amazing. On fine days, it's good to have a driver drop you off at the higher entrance gate, and then to walk down at a leisurely pace, back to the main section. In warm weather, there are drinks available for sale along the way. The museum has a really informative display about the reconstruction of that section of the wall.

If you choose to go left up the wall from the carpark you find the 302 steps of the Skyladder of Huangya. The incline is steep and a great challenge! The return distance is 2.8km and took us 3 hours, its a workout, had 3 or 4 small stops on the way up even though i like to think i am pretty fit..

We had a private driver take us from the heart of Tianjin to this segment of the Great Wall, and it was a beautiful ride. The wall and its views were stunning. We were there from about 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on a Wednesday and it felt like we had the whole wall to ourselves. Great photo opportunities without crowds of tourists in the background. This is the third different segment of the Great Wall that we've visited, and I believe it was the nicest experience of the three.
