My first experience at the Great Wall and I chose Mutianyu over some of the closer sections of the wall. It was great weather and the view was spectacular from the lookout points on the Great Wall. To get down from the wall we rode...More

Loved this section of the great wall. It was interesting to learn all the history of the great wall and we had an amazing tour guide provided by Local Panda

The structure is of course very impressive and historically significant. The views are spectacular. I especially liked being offered the cable car option to get to the top. Wife and daughter really enjoyed the toboggan ride down. This is a must do in China. Souvenir...More

If you only have 2 days in Beijing, there are 3 things I'd tell you to do. One is the Great Wall. It's a whole day tour and it's totally worth it. Mutianyu is about one hour drive, it's visited by many people, but not...More

I'd previously been on the Badaling and Juyonguan sections which are great but this section starts at a higher elevation and has the choice of going up or down. The up is very steep in parts but well worth the effort. We started early so...More

So much fun to explore this section of the wall. You can go for quite a long distance. We lucked out with the weather and it wasn’t horribly crowded

As good as advertised - this is a must do for the pictures alone! We went on an overcast day and the toboggan ride was closed due to some drizzling rain, but the sheer majestic beauty of this historic site more than made up for...More

Best one to do in Beijing. Spot around the wall is well constructed for tourist with cable car and slide ride on the way back. It is well worth it. Perfect time to visit is in September, good weather much less crowded before the Golden...More

Our tour was all included except the teleric up and tobogan down. But its quite cheap, and at the top you can decide if going down one way or the other. Its the same ticket.

Yes it is but only one way, which is going down ofcourse it is a slide. However the open cable car going up will bring you up to a certain tower (tower 6, I’m not sure) only which is lower to the closed cable car tower... More

There are numerous tours that state they either include the cable car or offer as an additional fee. My tour included the return cable car and I likely paid a decent premium to have the guide fetch the tickets for me... More
