Three ways going up and down the Mutianyu Great Wall
Map of Mutianyu Great Wall
  • On Foot: Hiking and climbing the wall on foot is not difficult for most visitors. The mountain road reaching to the watchtowers has approximately 500 steps which takes about half an hour to finish. There are two entrances for hiking leading to No. 6, No. 8 and No. 10 watchtowers on the wall.
  • Cable Car: Going up and down the wall by cable car is a much easier way. A round-trip ticket is more cost-effective. A chair lift up and a luge sliding down is also a good choice. Price reference: CNY120/US$17 for a round trip, CNY100/US$14 for a single way. You have flexibilities to choose when you arrive at the wall and our guide will help you purchase the tickets if you need.

    We were all immersed in the guide’s story about the construction of the Great Wall. It was so wonderful! The Mutianyu Great Wall was totally a must-see one on our two days Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour!

    Lily explained everything in detail and arranged our itinerary of the 2-day Mutianyu Great Wall Small Group Tour in place. We visited the Forbidden City very early to avoid long queues. A very wise arrangement!

    We had to get up at 7 am to make sure we had enough time to visit the scheduled scenic spots. However, the Forbidden City in Beijing and the Great Wall of Mutianyu were quite worth seeing!

    On the Beijing 2 days tour, the guide explained the scenic spots and historical sites in place and had a polite attitude to every guest. We had 8 members in our mini group, but the guide was energetic enough to take good care of each of us. Extremely comfortable travel experience!

    I got to tell that the Mutianyu Great Wall is a must-see one among the Beijing attractions. I recommend you guys visiting the Great Wall in spring when the flowers are blooming! It would be a lifetime experience in Beijing! ... More

    With our experienced & considerate guide, we had a deep exploration of the majestic Forbidden City. My friend and I took about half an hour to climb to the famous watchtowers of the Mutianyu Great Wall. The walls looked so grand and the landscape from the Great Wall was the best beauty I had ever seen. The thoughtful guides cared for us a lot and we were satisfied with this Beijing 2 days Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour!

    We had good fun on this 2-day Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour. The famous sights were all covered and we got a good experience of seeing the Great Wall and the night life of Beijing in an old alley.

    The tour guide was dutiful, enthusiastic and kind. He arranged a reasonable itinerary and shared interesting short stories of old Beijing city. Our driver was skillful and nice to get us bottled water, but it was a little cold... In brief, we got a lot from the short Beijing tour!

    The 2 days Beijing tour was my first visit to China and it was great except for the extremely cold weather… But I had never enjoyed such a high level of services provided by the company and stuff before.

    We had a fantastic Beijing 2 days tour with TravelChinaGuide. It was a little hard to get up early but the hot attractions requested on the itinerary especially the splendid Great Wall were really worth to visit. The restaurant recommended by our guide Lily was with a wide selection of choices and the Chinses dishes were quite fabulous and tasty. The services along the way were also exceptional. We will definitely be back and book with TCG again!

    Being the first time we have booked an organized trip via the internet, I must admit that I was a little nervous and not sure what it would be like but it was good. The Beijing 2 days tour was as good as I had imagined. I especially appreciated our guide Selina who was very knowledgeable and got just the right balance of flexibility and organization. I will recommend your tour package and Selina to my friends!
