Jinshanling Great Wall Tour
Jinshanling Great Wall tour is favored by photographers, hiker, backpackers as well as some travelers want to see the real Great Wall before any modern renovation.
This part of Great Wall is not so popular because it is far from Beijing city. Jinshanling section of Great Wall is around 160 km northeast downtown Beijing ( start from Tiananmen Square). In the past, it needs around 4 to 5 hours to reach Jinshaling Great Wall, then you need get up very early. Now there is a expressway, named Jingcheng, it needs driving around 2.5 to 3 hours, which made it easy to travel Jinshaling Great Wall. So most local travelers choose to visit Badaling instead of Jinshanling, although Jinshanling is also very grand and charming.
We suggest travelers to take Jinshaling Great Wall tour if you prefer to visit a quiet Great Wall or if you visited Mutianyu or Badaling in the past.
