The Great Wall dates back to the Northern Qi Dynasty, (550-557) and was rebuilt in the Ming Dynasty, (1368 -1644) to provide a protective barrier to guard the capital city and the imperial mausoleums from invaders.

At Mutianyu, you will see 23 Watch Towers, including one original tower. As you ascend, this UNESCO listed Great Wall Mutianyu will present beautiful scenery in your front, including thick forest and large pasture. As this part of the Great Wall lies on the wooded mountains, it is the most beautiful one among all Great Wall sections. Compared with Badaling section, Mutianyu is not yet overly visited and explored so it is much more visited by local visitors for the sake of its original and unique beauty. It is also family-friendly and most recommended for it is relatively not so steep and easier to both children and the aged to explore.


After the tour, the driver waiting at the parking lot will take you back to your hotel or drop you off wherever you like in downtown.
