  • Photos! Dashiyu pictures

    There are two ways to get here, neither of which are by public buses since they don't come this way. Both places are roughly 12-13km from Zunhua bus station and a taxi ride should cost no more than 30 kuai.

    1. Take a taxi to Chanlin Temple (禅林寺), a temple with supposedly 1,000 years of history (although reconstructed after the Japanese burnt it down sometime in the 40s). Ticket costs 50 kuai. Getting to the Great Wall from here is a bit far as you have to walk up and down a mountain before getting to it.

    2. Take a taxi to Dashiyu itself. If the taxi driver doesn't know how to get there, it's roughly a kilometer northeast of Matiyu (马蹄峪) village. There's no ticket to my knowledge and it's closer to the Great Wall than coming from Chanlin Temple.


    Keep going down this road. You can see turning right will take you to Chanlin Temple in 3km and Jiufengshan in 6km. Going straight, Matiyu is 2km away and Dashiyu is 3km away.


    Closer now.


    Upon seeing this, take a right. Keep going straight down the road for about a kilometer and then you'll come across an open space on your right. Just walk through the gorge and you'll eventually see the Great Wall.


    Here's a map from Chanlin Temple. It calls the Great Wall 北齐长城 (Northern Qi Great Wall) and北尖楼 (referring to one of the guard towers).

          So this is interesting. This is back on the main road where you can take bus 1, and it says Jiufengshan is only 5km away
