Mutianyu is the most impressive section of the Great Wall of China accessible from Beijing. Known for the beauty of its precipitous terrain it runs along the high mountain ridges. In order to more easily enjoy the panoramic views, we include convenient access up and down by cable car. On your journey to Mutianyu, you will stop at the Jade Factory and learn about the ancient culture of Chinese jade. For lunch, you will savor a typical home-style meal served in a farmer’s courtyard. And on your return journey you will experience a traditional and relaxing tea ceremony.

    Journey from your hotel through the lively streets of Beijing to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Located northeast of central Beijing; this portion of the wall was built in the mid-6th century. Hop out and immediately understand why the Great Wall is known as one of the Wonders of the World. Take a ride on the cable car up to the top of the section, enjoying far-reaching views of Huairou County.

We had Leo Lu as our tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and made the tour much more enjoyable. The great wall was fantastic. Be prepared to walk a lot of steps but it's well worth it.
