    This was one of the coolest experiences in my entire life. The hike is rigorous, but fun! The views once you get to the top of the wall are truly breathtaking.
    Also, our driver was really cool. He spoke English very well and gave us a few recommendations for our time in Beijing.

    We had the friendliest driver who helped us find our way. Jiankou was AMAZING!! A good hike up to the wall but absolutely worth the views. I will recommend this to everyone.

    If you are looking for a nice hike and an isolated part of the wall then this is definitely worth it. Approximately 300m elevation gain but the views are worth it. The only minor negative is that it is somewhat expensive. You get a car ride to the trail start and a car ride back to Beijing which is fine but a little pricey....
