Best Time to Hike on Great Wall near Beijing

The ideal times for visiting Great Wall are on spring, early summer, autumn (later March, April, May, June, September, October and early November). With colder temperature, hike on Great Wall on winter (during the late November to March) is a bit challenging. But during shoulder seasons, visiting Great Wall offer some lovely scenery and less visitors.

More than that, visitors can go early morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds and have great light for photos. Try not to visit the Great Wall when raining / snowing as snow and rain can make the surface of the Great Wall quite slippery. Avoid hike on Wild Great Wall sections like Jinshanling or Jiankou Great Wall after snow. Other well preserved Great Wall such as Badaling and Mutianyu are different which will offer breathtaking scenery blanketed with snow.
