Tests your strength and endurance. Went around 2003, was a younger, stronger boy then. But I would say it was worth the journey to hike this wall. The history behind it's building was also very fascinating.

You can see pictures, but until you walk the Wall, you don't appreciate the magnificence of it. Amazing views, don't miss it.

I went to Jinshanling wall and it was great. No crowed tourists, actually really few tourists you could met there. The view from the wall is really great. You can take small hike (10 Km.) which take only 2-3 hours.
