Simatai is the best section open at night — and it’s spectacular

Simatai is the easiest section of the wall open for night tours, and the best lit. You can walk between watchtowers five and six at night, which takes about one and a half hours. Make sure to book in advance, though. The rest of the wall is pretty rugged, and a limited number of people per day are allowed to visit.
