You can climb or take a funicular, which is great for people with limited mobility. I went in March and it was so clear we could see the Beijing skyline. This is a great time as there were minimal tourists and it wasn't extremely cold....More

Rather than any other places to visit the Great Wall of china i will recommend Mutiny is the place to be. Less crouded, cable car drops you off straight to the bottom and then you can walk as much as you like.
