What to Expect
Experience the majesty of the Great Wall of China during this private, half-day tour from Beijing.
Explore the wall's less visited Mutianyu section and enjoy wonderful views of stunning Chinese countryside. Snaking its way through the Yanshan Mountains, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall features an optional cable car ride, or an opportunity to climb the more than 1,400 steps to the top.
Go deep into a serene landscape to discover one of the Great Wall of China's most majestic sections. The Mutianyu section is older than the more popular Badaling section, and significantly less crowded. This section is also much steeper, offering a more challenging climb as you explore its densely packed watchtowers and parapets.
Once you have descended the wall, stop at a nearby cloisonne factory to discover how this time-honored technique of decorative metalwork is practiced today. The art of cloisonne is a unique combination of sculpture, painting, porcelain making, and coppersmithing that is said to have originated in Beijing during the Yuan Dynasty.
