How tough is this hike?
This hike is very flexible from 5kms to 10kms. When we get to the Wall, you have free time to enjoy the wall or hike a bit more. It is not tough. Normal sneakers are enough for this hike.
Does the Great Wall we visited full of people?
Both the 2 sections are far away from the City. It is much quiet than Mutianyu and Badaling. Especially when it is not the weekend or Holiday, we were the only group on the wall most of the times.
