Hiking up is definitely a bit of an adventure. Blocks area all different shapes and sizes and can be quite uneven.

Once you make it up to the wall and start walking it's gorgeous. Go early for best views without people.

Beware that the entrance and exit are the same so the further you walk out to explore the same distance you'll have to walk back in order to leave.

Also, you can toboggan down with an added fee which was definitely worth it!

It is a great sight capable of encompassing great historical moments throughout the years, plus there were lives that were lost at the time of its construction, It has a great background that is worth investigating if you are curious about its history.

I was working in China at the time, and while I have worked in five different countries abroad, one the main reasons I was in China was because of my father. He always said Mainland China was the only place he would have been interested in visiting. He was around 85 or so when he said this.

The Great Wall was a great experience. I signed up for the Mutianyu trip at my hotel, not really having researched that much. It was a great trip, including a ticket for a Chinese Opera. Mutianyu is more visitor friendly than some other parts (heard while I was there, and on this site. There was snow on the ground, which had its challenge, but it was fine. A lunch was offered as well, and it was fantastic!

Was great to be somewhere so old and famous - the only other place I have been that would equal would be Aangkor Wat in Cambodia...

Well worth the trip!!! If you don't know which place to go, Mutianyu should not disappoint in any way. It is beautiful, historic, and has trails for everyone...they educate people about how to take the trip in and out.

This was in 2019...the choices did not go back that far.

My experience at the Mutianyu Great Wall was spectacular! We walk along the wall, I had a great view and a strange feeling when you are walking on this monument..It's also great for photoshoots. I really enjoyed my experience there and would definitely visit it again.

The Mutianyu Great Wall is one of the best-preserved and best-known Great Wall sections. Located 40 miles (65km) to the north of Beijing city proper, the Great Wall at Mutianyu has breath-taking scenery but less tourists, thus a good destination on hot holidays for a Great Wall tour at ease.

Mutianyu has changed a lot in the last 10 years. It is still my preferred spot to visit the Great Wall (over Badaling). More nature, less people. They moved the ticket sales and parking area down the mountain, presumably to let in more people and make it more commercial. It is far enough down that you must take the free bus up to the original ticket area. After the bus, if you have small children take the cable car up to the wall, hike as much as you want, and take the cable car down. If you are fit and childless, start your hike immediately to the right of the bus drop, hike parallel to the ski lift, see nature, then hike the whole wall up to the cable car for a relaxed return. I do not recommend hiking up and down unless you have all day and tons of snacks/water. Such a great spot!
