Mutianyu Great Wall   

Have you get tired of the noisy crowd? Are you looking for a less crowed section of the Great Wall? Mutianyu Great Wall is the best choice. A little further away from central Beijing than the most popular Badaling and other sections of the Great Wall, Mutianyu Great Wall enjoys tranquil and spectacular scenery.

Located 43 miles (70 km) northeast of Beijing, Mutianyu Great Wall is 1.4 miles (2,250m) long, 26 feet (7-8m) high and 20 feet (4-6m) wide. Its specialty relays on 22 blockhouses and watchtowers on it. Climbing up into a number of watchtowers, tourists can have a bird's eye view of the snake wall and its surrounding area. Moreover, it makes up a perfect day-trip combining with Ming Tombs. The steps of it are in good shape. Two cable cars are available for taking you to the wall and back down again. You can also take a luge to return to the bottom.

The best visiting time is Autumn as the weather is cool and changing foliage offers a beautiful view. The opening time is from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm.

Bus line 916 and 936 go to Mutianyu Great Wall and you can take a subway from three Beijing stops:
Xuan Wu Men - NE corner of intersection
Dong Si She Tiao - NW subway entrance

An Ding men - SW subway entrance
