Not for the faint-hearted – warning on the Great Wall

Not a walk in the park – climbing the Great Wall

We climbed the Great Wall at JuYong Pass, where there is a bus park almost on the level of the wall. Watchtowers are placed at strategic intervals but getting from one to the next is a challenge. Steps at this section of Wall were built during the Ming dynasty and are steep and uneven, with shallower steps at the edges.
