... us. We had a steep half hour hike just to get to it.
We started in a section called Simatai West, which is unrestored, and hiked for about 4 hours ending on the restored Jinshanling section. "Hike" is used loosely. Most of it is steep stairs either up or down as you go from crest to crest. The rise of the steps ranged from 4" to 15" (oh, my poor knees...)

Whilst the initial climb was the toughest part, we still faced ...
... over here are so busy that you have to cross them via underground pedestrian crossings! Before we could head back above ground we had to pass through a security gate which scanned our bags. We then had to go through the same process when we entered the square! Once again this was such a huge area! We were lucky enough to see the guards changing over while we were there - a very precise manouver that's for sure. We took some pics then spotted the National Museum across the ...
