Trees and plants in the mountains turn green in spring. the wall wonders among the lush vegetation. Every thing looks so fresh. In late spring (middle April to late April) with the flowers bloom is a great time to find a wild section of the wall and hike up to it.

In summer the mountains are covered with green plants and trees which are very flourishing. The Great Wall winds its way like a silver dragon, standing out clearly in the strong green of the plants. 

If you take place to go to the Wall in summer season- later on June, July and August, be ready for heat stroke prevention -sunglasses, sun cream, sun block, hat, water. July and August are the months when most of the year’s rain falls in Beijing, so bring waterproofs in case.
