Useful Travel Tips

The Wall on the steep hilltops leading east toward the Zhengbeilou tower is impassable without rock-climbing equipment, and we do not advise you to go further.

It is not the perfect season to hike and trek on a stone wall, perched on a mountain during the winter. Since the views are crystal clear and the location deserted, the chill is just about worth suffering for.
