You should pick your Great Wall section based on your ability and willingness to hike

Parts of it are really, really steep

Some parts of the wall are so steep, they are near vertical. You should pick your section based on your ability and willingness to hike.
- Mutianyu is the easiest section to trek, as it is fully restored.
- Jinshanling is claimed to be the most beautiful section of the wall and is half-restored — offering a challenging hike.
- For those who really want to test themselves, head for Jiankou — it’s totally wild and requires a decent pair of hiking boots (and a strong will!).
