The infrastructure is quite good to help visitors and gettting around is not that complicated. This part of the wall seems to have been renovated, so although steps can be a bit slippery and uneven, it is just walking up and down steps, so even...More

Mutianyu Great Wall is a nice place and great view, not too crowded compared with Badailing. Just take a cable car and only needs a few minutes walk to the top.

This was a highlight of our time in Beijing. We were very fortunate that it wasn't crowded and we managed to walk on the wall for several hours. Recommend taking the toboggan down - great fun!

We did the cable car up and the toboggan down and both were enjoyable. From the cable car up it’s still a hard walk to get to the top with some very steep parts. One negative is the lack of toilets

I agree with greeley1. Save your energy for climbing on the wall. Cable car up and toboggan down. Easy and fun. My colleagues and I used .tourtravelchina for a day tour. Maybe a bit low end but they delivered as promised.
