_We***74We started at the middle enterance and hiked until the east gate. Very exhausting but worth the view. If you are not up for hiking up you can take a cable car. Very touristed and crowded, but not as much on the trail. Side shops are everywhere, so you don't have to carry tons of water up with you. Also builds a lot of muscle in your legs. ️
E25***43amazing part of the Great Wall to visit paired with the cool ancient town right below! it is not crowded and you can take so much wonderful pictures! cable cars are available if you do not want to hike all the way up ! so adventurous or not, you still get to enjoy the amazing experience up on Great Wall!
_We***23The Mountain Resort was the summer retreat for some of the Qing Emporers and it's scale and beauty definitely speaks of power of the Qing at its height. There is the Palace area which is now a museum with an extre fee to enter, however it is probably worth it. The there is the lakes area which are one of the best parts. Artificial islands house pavilions and palaces which are great for walking around and then having a rest in the shade. To the right of the lakes is the plains area showing the manchurian heritage of the Qing dynasty. This area if just grassland, but at the end there are some Mongolian yurts and a tall pagoda. Then there is the mountain area which takes up most of the space of the resort. This area is sometimes closed (late winter and spring), but the tour bus that races around the mountains is definitely worth it. There are many areas in which you can get off, with the highlight probably being the view of the 'mini potala palace' from the wall. Definitely worthy of its designation as a world heritage site, and worth going, despite the rather steep price (at least for Chinese standards).
M27***72The site of Luanping Museum has been demolished. The new site is in Shanrong Park and is currently under renovation. If you want to go, please contact us by phone and go after confirmation. You can first visit the Luanping City Exhibition Hall. Nanshan Park is also worth a visit.
The Great Wall of China is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and for good reason! Our trip to the Jinshanling section of the wall was the most surreal experience of 2019. The wall is so historically significant and I could feel the history with every step! Consider adding the Great Wall of China to your 2020 travel goals 😁
After a year, I came to the Great Wall of Jinshanling again. I climbed the Great Wall with me and my girlfriend, and there were cute little squirrels. Last night, I lived in the courtyard full of quaint charm at the foot of the Great Wall. The Jinshanling Great Wall Yueyuan Hotel is from the world's top hotel group Banyan Tree Group. Our small courtyard is next door to the entrance of the scenic spot. When we open the door in the morning, we can say good morning to the majestic Great Wall.
