I heard that the Badaling section of the Wall is extremely commercialized and crowded. Hence I chose the Mutianyu section. Did not disappoint. There has been extensive restoration work done in the section by the government and it shows. There are many places for great...More

- Not too far out of Beijing, about 1.5 hours out.
- There are 10+ watch towers that you can choose to walk. Some parts...More
As part of our tour of China we visited this site, even though it was school holidays the wait to get onto the chairlift was not too bad. You get to see a large section of the wall. Really enjoyed the tour. Beware do Not...More

Our driver was booked through our hotel but cost only 1000 yuan and that was for a full day driving us around temple of heaven and forbidden city and then to the wall and back to hotel. Plus he was English speaking which is so much more convenient.

Depending on how quickly you walk allow 15-20 minutes from one tower to another. There are steps up and steps down and walking paths that are flat in between each tower. So 9 towers is likely 2-3 hours of walking.
