The Great Wall is arguably the most recommended Chinese tourist attraction. Since 1963, there have been over 500 leaders of other countries, who visited the Great Wall. The ancient emperors of China built the Great Wall to defend themselves during wars, so they could never imagine that the Great Wall is now a bridge of friendship.
Most ancient Great Wall sections collapsed by wars or wind erosion or other natural disasters. However, the sections in Beijing, built during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), are relatively preserved well. The Mutianyu, Badaling, Jinshanling, Jiankou, Huanghuacheng, and Simatai Great Wall are the most-visited sections in Beijing and have been included in our Great Wall tour packages. Book with us and we will show you the most authentic Great Wall.
Generally speaking, September, October, and November are the best months to visit the Great Wall, which are built on mountains. The climate is relatively mild during these three months. However, if you like snow view, it is recommended to visit the Great Wall in winter (December, January, and February).
