Been there twice. The best views of the wall as it winds up the mountainside. Would highly recommend it.

Luckily I had excellent weather - got there early so avoid the crowds then relaxed in the sustainable business called The Old Schoolhouse down in the village where I had an excellent lunch with views of the wall.

We are not the fittest of people but climbed up to one of the high stations stopping regularly. You can buy water up there on the wall which surprised me. The views are spectacular and it was really special to stand on the Great Wall itself.

Being able to experience the Great Wall within a few hours drive of Beijing, it is worth heading to Mutianyu for the views and fun toboggan ride down the hill upon completion of your walking/climbing the wall. The chair lift ride up and down and/or walking down makes this location a great option for all types of travelers.

I went on a small group trip early one Sunday morning. This seemed like a good time to go as we had the wall pretty much to ourselves as we walked out, while it was a lot busier coming back. The extra for the chairlift and slide down is worth it as you avoid a trek up and jump ahead of a lot of big groups arriving on foot.
