Climbing the Great Wall is a lifelong dream for many, but you are in a country of more than 1.3 billion people plus never-ending tourist crowds. Your dream is naturally shared by millions. To make sure your memories of the climb are pleasant, forget the Badaling section. It is a pure nightmare. Head to Mutianyu, and head there early. The crowds are much less, and for the large part of your journey you are able to enjoy the serenity of the area in peace. Ninety minute drive from Beijing. Open daily from 6:30-18:30. Tip: Take the toboggan slide down the mountain for a fun descent.
