Generally, our guide and driver will come to collect you between 06:30 - 07:30. With all the group members assembled, we will head for the Mutianyu Great Wall. The drive normally takes 1.5 to 2 hours.
Welcome to join us!
Our distinguished friends
Upon arrival, you will spend 2.5 to 3 hours hiking along the Mutianyu Great Wall. There will be a meal arranged at a local restaurant at the foot of the wall. Mutianyu is famous for its density of watchtowers. Only the 500 meters' (550 yards) distance from the Big Corner Tower to the Zhengguan Terrace stands four watchtowers. Towers in such close proximity are rare on any other section of China's Great Wall.

When you complete your conquest of Mutianyu, please return to the appointed meeting place. You will drive back to downtown and get off at the closest subway station. This one day Mutianyu group tour will come to an end here. If you want to explore more about Beijing, please feel free to contact your travel consultant.

What You Can See at Mutianyu Great Wall
Mutianyu is one of the representative sections of the Great Wall built during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). As a defensive screen of the capital city and the nearby imperial mausoleum - the Ming Tombs, it had always been of great military importance. Therefore, the ramparts of Mutianyu were crenellated on both sides to enable soldiers to fight against enemies from either direction. There are also two branches stretching from No. 11 Watchtower and the Big Corner Tower (No. 1 Watchtower) to meet any changing demands of a battle.

The density of watchtowers is the highlight of this Great Wall section. There are totally 23 towers set along the 2,250-meter-long (2,460-yard) ramparts. Three of them stand side by side at the Zhengguan Terrace with the larger one in the center and two smaller towers seated at the two sides. Zhengguan Terrace, known also as Mutianyu Pass, has two storeys with many separate rooms. These were for storing grains and assembling troops. Viewed from crenellations here, one can have a full view of the battlefield outside, so the terrace also served as the command headquarters.

Friendly Travel Tips
1. Some segments of the wall are quite steep, so we strongly recommend that you wear a pair of comfortable shoes. 
2. Segments between the No. 14th and the No. 23rd watchtowers reveal the best views from the Mutianyu Great Wall.
3. You can also take cable car or chairlift up to the ramparts at your own expense. Apart from hiking downhill, you can still take cable car at the No. 14 Watchtower or slide down from Zhengguan Terrace via luge.

What time is Retuen
Since I am looking to be back at my hotel by 3-4 pm do we know the estimated time we return from the trip. Can I decide to leave early and how much is a trip taxi back from the great wall to hotel in downtown?
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Oct. 28, 2018 23:54

The estimated time of getting back to downtown is around 2pm-4pm. But the exact drop off time is based on the road condition on that day and the time might be delayed if the traffic is bad. Besides, it is difficult to hail a taxi from Mutianyu Great Wall to Beijing downtown, so we kindly suggest you consider a private tour instead, which is more flexible. Or you may change another day to join this group tour when you have a whole day free. Thanks for your attention.

Normally, you will be transferred back to Beijing downtown during 2pm-4pm in the afternoon when we finish the group day trip. However, the exact drop off time is based on the road condition on that day.

Since you will need to catch a train to Suzhou at 15:45, we kindly suggest you take our private day tour instead, which is more flexible. And we can tailor make the itinerary for you based on your request. Please feel free to contact us if you need further help. Thanks for attention.

Great Wall in end December
Is it consider holiday or peak during end December ? How is the weather?
Answers (1)
Answered by Jack | Sep. 27, 2018 02:17

It's in winter as well as tourist off season with less travelers in the end of December in Beijing. However, it is still accessible to climb the Great Wall. The weather is chilly and dry with heavy wind sometimes during that time. If you are lucky, you may catch the snow view, which is pretty stunning. I suggest you wear warm clothes. Good luck!

Hi, Jonathan! First, the time is enough for you to take a tour to the Great Wall. And in early January, it's chilly and windy in Beijing especially on the Great Wall. The temperatures sometimes can drop to below -10°C (14°F). You are suggested to wear down jacket, gloves, hats, warm trousers and a pair of comfortable shoes if you plan to climb the wall in winter. But if you're lucky, you may see the amazing snow-covered landscape of the wall.
