I'll be visiting Beijing in March and I've been reading about the various sections of the Great Wall that are near by. I'm always interested in places that are off the beaten path and it seems many suggest that the Jiankou section of the Great Wall might offer the most scenic and less touristy spot for visiting.
With that reading though, it suggests that this might be a dangerous area for lone visitors, due to the sustained damage over the years. Many blogs suggest you should be a seasoned hiker. I would like to visit, but likely only for a few hours, I'm not a seasoned hiker, however I'm comfortable enough with the outdoors to know when I might be in danger and not.
Is this section of the wall really that dangerous that I should not visit alone?
