Full description
Save time and money taking a dedicated bus direct to the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall in Hebei Province. This section is famous for retaining its natural look, with lots of ruins staying how it looked when it was built in the 1300s. Climb aboard the bus departing from downtown Beijing City and arrive at Jinshanling. Follow your guide from the parking lot to take a shuttle to the admission gate. Have the option to buy the ticket combination for the wall and cable car and save time when you arrive. Enjoy 4–5 hours of free time to climb up to the General Tower to take in the scenic views. Marvel at the unrepaired Gaojin Tower and Yaogou Tower. A lot of heritage can be found along the Jinshanling Great Wall section, including the stone picture of the Qilin, a one-horned beast in Chinese mythology. If you choose the add-on, take the scenic cable car and see one for the most famous attractions in the world from another point of view. Upon exiting the Great Wall, take the shuttle back to the parking lot. From there a bus will take you back to Beijing.
