As most of the tourist guides point out, ?The wall took advantage of the natural terrain for defensive purposes, following the highest points of the mountains and clinging to the ridges.?
Not only does this offer you, the tourist, spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, the ?Mutianyu" section of the wall is not for the faint hearted!
The wall is very steep in sections (one couple resorted to crawling up the stairs on their hands and knees,) and therefore you will require a moderate amount of physical fitness.
Day pack, water, hat, water, sunscreen, water, comfortable shoes and water. Oh yeah, and water!
