You can try simple Chinese food, like dumplings, noodles and fried rice, or Western fast food at Burger King or Subway. You may eat there or take it away. Your guide will offer you some helpful advice.

13:30 Visit the Mutianyu Great Wall

Mutianyu Great Wall, which is majestic with charming scenery, is the longest section of the Great Wall in China. It is attractive for the high vegetation coverage, peculiar passes, intensive watch towers and distinctive crenels on both sides. The most beautiful part of the Mutianyu Great Wall is in the No. 17, 18, 19 and 20 watch towers. You have 3 ways to go up to the great wall, and after arriving, you may hike east to appreciate the spectacular views along the way. You will have 2-3 hours hiking on the wall.

Enjoy hiking on the Great Wall

Three ways going up and down the Mutianyu Great Wall

  • On Foot: Young people who love mountain climbing can choose to walk up and down the Great Wall. It takes about 30 minutes for a single trip with about 500 steps. There are two entrances to reach the No.6, 8 or 10 watch tower. You may ask your guide for more details.
  • Cable Car: Taking the cable car can set more time aside on the Great Wall. A round-trip ticket costs CNY120/US$17 and a single trip costs CNY100/US$14. The cable car is fully enclosed and can reach the No. 14 watch tower. It is suitable for the elderly and people who are afraid of heights.
  • A chair lift up and a toboggan down: Besides the enclosed cable car, there is a more interesting way, which is to take an open chair lift that offers you a better view. After the visit, you can take the chair lift or a toboggan down the Wall. Please tell your guide which way you prefer and she/he will assist you with ticket purchasing.
