GW04-01: One Day Badaling Great Wall Helicopter Tour (15 minutes) - Mutianyu Great Wall - Bird's Nest
Our guide will meet you at the hotel you booked personally at 08:00. Afterwards, the driver will take you to Badaling Airport to catch the helicopter R44 which can hold 3 visitors at a time. During this 15 minutes' flight, you can appreciate Badaling Great Wall, the best preserved Great Wall section of Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), from a different angle.

After that, the guide will accompany you to the Mutianyu Great Wall by car. Before the visit, you can have a simple lunch in a nearby restaurant at your own expense. Mutianyu is the longest Great Wall section in China with a length of 5,400 meters (3.4 miles). Over 20 watchtowers are densely distributed along the wall every around 200 meters (220 yards). Zhengguan Terrace here is a unique site of the Great Wall of China with three watchtowers standing side by side. A round-trip cable car is included in our price.

When you finish visiting there, the guide will escort you back to your hotel. En route, you can admire the National Stadium from a distance. Its nickname, Bird's Nest, is widely accepted as it looks exactly like a giant steel nest. Later, you will reach your hotel at around 17:30 and your one-day Beijing Great Wall helicopter tour comes to an end here.

Meals: not included, but our guide will offer some suggestions.

GW04-02: One Day Badaling Great Wall Helicopter Tour (30 minutes) - Badaling Great Wall - Sacred Way - Bird's Nest
Our professional guide will pick you up at the hotel you booked on your own, and then take you to Badaling Airport. Get on the helicopter R44 and you can have a bird's-eye-view of the Badaling Great Wall and the Badaling Remnant Great Wall during the 30 minutes' flight. Besides, this helicopter will hover over the remnants at a very low altitude, so you can take clearer pictures of this Great Wall section in midair.

Later, we will continue our trip to Badaling Great Wall Scenic Area to enjoy its broad and beautiful scenery. One who fails to reach the Great Wall is not a hero. Climbing Badaling Great Wall can absolutely be a highlight of your Beijing tour. It used to be an important outpost, and is now the most representative and popular section of the Great Wall of China. Our guide will give you a more detailed explanation about Badaling during your trip. Afterwards, you may have lunch on your own in a nearby restaurant.

After that, the guide will accompany you to the Sacred Way of Ming Tombs with vivid animal statues lined on both sides. You can see a huge stone memorial archway at the entrance, carved with various patterns of auspicious beasts including dragons, kylins, and lions. Besides, you can also find a pavilion in the midway holding a 6-meter (20-foot) high stele.

After visiting this Sacred Way, our driver will send you back to your hotel. You can have a distance view of the National Stadium, also known as Bird's Nest, on the way. This one-day Great Wall of China Helicopter tour in Beijing will come to an end at around 17:30. You can contact us for a further trip in Beijing as your willingness.

Asked by Ingela from CHINA | Nov. 17, 2018 19:54Reply
Hi, is there a vehicle available also for this part:
"After that, the guide will accompany you to the Sacred Way of Ming Tombs, measuring around 7 kilometers (4 miles)".

I'm not a strong walker, so I cannot do this much walking.

There is no vehicle available for the Sacred Way of Ming Tombs, while we will just take about 20-minute walk to visit this part. 7 kilometers refer to the whole length of the Sacred Way and we only visit part of it. What's more, it is a private day tour, the itinerary can be adjusted accordingly based on your requirement and condition. Please contact us freely should you have any further question. Thanks for attention.
