Asked by Lily (Jun.05, 2012)

Lead To China Trip Advisor (Jun.05, 2012) replied:
Generally speaking, Simatai to Jinshanling section is a little bit dangerous although hiking lovers like to have an adventure there. I recommend you to trek Mutianyu section more. It's less crowded with a beautiful view.
