What You Can Expect

  • 1

    Mutianyu Great Wall

    Your guide will meet you at your hotel in the morning to transfer you to the Mutianyu Great Wall, located about 90 minutes from the city center. Upon arrival, you are free to take the cable car to the summit, or hike up to the battlements. Snake your way through the densely packed watchtowers and crenelated parapets, admiring the Yanshan Mountains as you hike. The wall is much less touristy than the more popular Badaling Wall, and you’ll be spared the hassle of the souvenir vendors.
