    Today the tour will take you north of Beijing to the relaxing mountains and streams surrounding the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China. Drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, which provides a more challenging climb than the more popular Badaling section. Snaking its way through the Yanshan Mountains, the wall contains interesting features, such as densely packed watchtowers and crenelated parapets. An optional cable car avoids the need to climb the 1,400 steps to the summit, from which you will be rewarded with staggering views of the mountains. You will also visit the Ming Tombs, located on the southern slope of Tianshou Mountain. Thirteen Ming Dynasty Emperors were buried in the area after the third Ming Emperor Yongle moved the Chinese capital from Nanjing to Beijing in 1420. The incredible complex includes a 4-mile (7 kilometer) road named the "Spirit Way," lined with statues of guardian animals that leads to the entrance. Explore the Ding Mausoleum, where excavations have unearthed important objects for the study of the history of the Ming Dynasty. To round off this trip to some of China’s most ancient sites, contrast Beijing of the past with Beijing of the future and visit the striking 'Water Cube' and 'Birds Nest' structures, built for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. After the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
