At about 6-7 am your English-speaking guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel/hostel (with the 3rd Ring circle), and from there we will make the approximate one-hour drive to the Mutianyu Great Wall. This section of the Great Wall is a masterpiece of restoration, with 22 original style watchtowers. Mutianyu [moo-tyen-yoo], meaning 'Admire Fields Valley', is the longest fully-restored Great Wall section open to tourists. The wall, built with slabs of granite, is 22 km (14 miles) long, seven or eight meters high and four or five meters wide, crenellated on both sides.
The hike will take about 2.5 hours.
Once we’re done, you can hike down to the parking lot, take a cable car, or take a toboggan ride (highly recommended, and lots of fun!) down to meet our driver. We’ll then have lunch at a local restaurant, allowing you to refresh and recharge yourself after today’s hike. You’ll then be taken back to Beijing, where you’ll be dropped off at the nearest subway station to your hotel or your evening event such as as an acrobatic show or Kungfu show that you can also book through us.
Included: Personal pickup from your hotel in the morning (within the 2nd Ring Loop circle), general admission to Mutianyu, English-speaking tour guide, nice minivan, and lunch. Out of the complimentary pickup circle, only $9 per car for a personal pickup.
The red-shade is the area is where this tour covers. We will drive about 2 hours on a highway from Beijing to the Great Wall. Typically we will leave at 7-8 am from your hotel.
