Are you planning a day trip to the Great Wall but afraid of the crowds? Then Mutianyu must be an ideal destination for you. It’s less well-known to tourists but with sceneries that can rival against any section of the Great Wall. Surrounded by lush forests, Mutianyu Great Wall not only teaches you a wonderful Chinese history lesson, but also brings you closer to nature. Decorated by blooming flowers in spring and summer, golden leaves in fall, and blanketed with snow in winter, the grandeur of Mutianyu Great Wall is to be taken in at all seasons.
Things to do on the Mutianyu Great Wall: walk along the pathway with dense watchtowers and fortresses and feel its profound history; indulge yourself in the autumn colors of Mutianyu Great Wall; opt to take a cable car ride or chair lift to soar over the Mutianyu Great Wall; enjoy the excitement of a toboggan ride winding through mountains.

When there was an overpayment due to miscommunication, a refund was made before I left for my trip to Beijing. An honest business indeed.
The Mubus was easy to spot on the day of our trip. Several staff lined up along the route from outside the train station called Dong Si Shi Tiao Station and pointed to us where the bus was.
A little bit of chaos because of the many domestic tourists at this time of the year and especially on Mondays when all museums are closed. So try to go from Tuesday onwards.
We had a good driver and funny tourist guide Claire (Wang Dan) who got us to hurry in order to beat the crowd. Excellent idea it was. They all seemed to be happy people so overall the trip was very pleasant.
No hesitation in recommending Travel China Guide and the Mubus for travels in Beijing.
Thank you again for the wonderful service.
Trip: 21st October 2019.
If you booked tickets for cable car/pulley/slideway tickets online in advance but they were closed on the visiting day, we will offer you a refund of these tickets. Or you can book Mubus ticket only and buy these cable car/pulley/slideway tickets in cash on bus from the guide on the day of travel.
Up to now, there is no news about stop in service for toboggan and chairlift in winter time. You can buy tickets online in advance together with entrance ticket or buy it on spot if you may change the way of visiting. Both options works.
We are sorry that we cannot offer entrance ticket and cable car ticket booking for child. You can buy child ticket on spot instead. Sorry about it.
