I am planning to hike the Wall from Badaling to Shanhaiguan. I will spend few months in China before, studying Chinese, and before heading home I want to see the wall. I chose Badalig-Shanhaiguan part because I've read it is the best preserved one and the views are amazing. I will be starting late May, and hope to finish by the end of June.
Few questions to more experienced Great Wall hikers:
1. How long do you estmate the hike would take? Supposing I walk around 30km/day. Are there any maps of this part of the wall, with the names of towns/villages I will pass by?
2. Is it possible to resupply everyday? In the most remote parts of the Wall, how far from civilization will I be?
3. Any advice on sleeping on the Wall? Should I take a tent if I want to sleep somewhere in the towers, or is sleeping bag enough?
4. What kind of wheather should I expect in May-June season?
