What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day private tour to the Yanshan Mountains north of Beijing, and take in the breathtaking scenery. Your ultimate destination is one of the most spectacular sections of the Great Wall of China.
Upon arrival at the Mutianyu Great Wall, soak up the serene atmosphere, far from the crowds of the more touristy sections of China's most famous monument. You will ascend Mutianyu by cable car or ski lift for panoramic views of the dense woods, rich pasture and undulating mountains, stretching as far as Mongolia.
Built mainly from granite, the pass is a unique section of the Great Wall, with crenellations on both sides. Older than the famous Badaling section, it provides visitors with a more challenging hike. Descend the mountain by toboggan.
Then, after an authentic Chinese lunch in a local restaurant, explore Beijing's ancient alleys - known as Hutongs - by rickshaw. Climb aboard the iconic mode of transport to get a closer look at local life in the old city. You will stop at a teahouse to take part in some traditional tea drinking, completing your immersion into some of China's most emblematic cultural experiences.
