Do you know that the Great Wall of China can be descented in zip or via a slide? In our excursion to the Great Wall of China we found that in some of the sectors that you can visit from Beijing you can develop some complementary activities to hiking. Quite amazing right? The quickest way down possible especially after a long day of walking and climbing it!
This is the case in the Simantai sector where after touring the Great Wall you can descend from the same by means of a zip. Also at Mutianyu sector where they installed a large slide down the mountainside and people can use it to descend from the Great Wall. These sectors can be found easily and many tourists prefer them!
In the guide of china travel there’s extensive information on the zip line descent from the Great Wall at Simatai and the slide to go down from the Great Wall at Mutianyu.
