One of the most beutifull places we have visited in China. We were lucky we have been almost alone. We were there on Friday and our advice is to go there on working days. You can go up by chair or cabin lift and down...More

Wonderful area of the wall without the crowds. There is both a cable car, and a toboggan to ride down if the weather is good.

Fabulous Great Wall location. Badaling is WAY too crowded and touristy; do not go to that location. Mutianyu was a perfect fit for us; I have been to the great wall 4 times; 2 of the 4 have been at Mutianyu. Great exploring, walking, pictures,...More

Great Wall was amazing. Cable car up and walk for about 1 hour down to slide. We spent approximately 3 hrs here. Subway sandwich at the beginning of Cable car.

Bring your walking shoes and prepare to climb stairs! Incredible view. There is a sled that goes down the mountain, but I did not get to try it as it started to rain at the end of the day.

We had a great time at the Great wall. Bring water, your camera and be prepared to climb. It was like the grand canyon, in that you cannot imagine how amazing it is, until you are there... And then you are like "WOW!"

Hi all I am soon to be going to China with my girlfriend. We will be arriving in Beijing on a Thursday in the afternoon, and we will be leaving the following Tuesday. We arrive in the second last week in August. I have heard that summer months are busy (especially the weekends, so we can rule out going to Mutianyu on the Saturday and Sunday), so we will consider going the Friday or Monday. As we arrive on the Thursday, would it be relatively easy to navigate the bus route option on the Friday morning, or would you recommend we wait till the Monday as we will be more familiar with Beijing itself. Would it be too much to take on less than 24hrs after arriving in a completely new country with very little English? Also, everywhere says its hot in the summer, but as it will be near the end of August, will it be cooler? Is the wall still doable in the heat. We will be doing it no matter what (as its our only time to do it), but I don't want it ruined from being too hot. Has anyone done it around this time of year. I may just get some beers into me up there!!

Private car & driver recommended by an expat local. He is on wechat (the app they all use in China) as driversam. Great car, nice guy - all we needed to have a great day at the wall.

Planning to visit great wall with my wife and 2 & half year old son. How can we reach to Mutianyu great wall and come back from city using public transport? How much time it will take to go and the cost? I think cable car up and down is ok? Can I take toboggan ride with my kid for coming down? Thanks in advance for suggestion.
