Full description
Discover one of the Great Wall of China’s most majestic sections, northeast of Beijing. Dating back to the 6th-Century, and built as a northern barrier to protect the imperial tombs, Mutianyu offers an alternative Great Wall experience compared to the popular Badaling section.

The section is older than Badaling and provides a more challenging climb, so you will be offered the chance to take an easy cable car ride to the top. Snaking its way through the Yanshan Mountain, north of Huaiou, it contains interesting features, such as densely packed watchtowers and crenelated parapets.

On board the cable car, riding the last hurdle of the Mutianyu section, you can be Chairman Mao's "Plucky Hero" as described in his poetry. Take in the magnificent vista before continuing your journey.

Lunch will be served in the countryside on the way to Mutianyu. After Mutianyu, visit the National Stone Place to learn about China’s most precious stone.

On the return journey, pause to enjoy a tea ceremony at Dr. Tea, where you will learn about the rich flavors and health benefits of the many types of Chinese tea.
