Jiankou Great Wall is not peaceful any more. The scenery is breathtaking here, but it’s not for all ages. Due to the unrestored condition and more and more visitors, the wall is becoming loose and unsteady. You have to watch your steps very carefully. In a bad weather like lightening and rainstorm, you have to get off the wall as quick as possible. Several Chinese were killed by lightening in the past years.
Definitely kids and seniors are not recommended here. Simatai, Jinshanling and Mutianyu are good alternatives.
Comfortable boots is a necessary. Stick is helpful but some sections you have to climb up by hands.
