About Mutianyu Great Wall

Mutianyu Great Wall is located in Huairou district, Beijing. To the west of Mutianyu is Juyongguan Great Wall, while to the north is Gubeikou. Since ancient times, this has been a location with military significance and has defended Beijing from attack. Mutianyu Great Wall is principally built on the edge of a steep hill, using the hillside as an advantage. The height of the Great Wall reaches seven to eight meters and the width reaches four to five meters. The main building material is granite, making the structure both majestic and solid. There are many towers on the Mutianyu section. There are 22 towers on the currently open section, which is 2250 meters long.

    We've been to Badaling before. The regiment we followed at that time and the magnificence of the Great Wall were all drowned out. Too many people were crowded. This proper decision can no longer follow the regiment, we must climb the Great Wall by ourselves, so we chose Mutianyu. It takes about two hours to drive from downtown. It's not very far, but it's recommended to start early in the morning. To get to the foot of the Great Wall, you have to take a ferry (bus) to the cableway or cable car. There are 20 observation towers in Mutianyu. There are two ways to go up and down the mountain. Tower 6 can go up and slide down the cableway. Tower 14 can go down the cableway. These two ways are 120 fast/round trip (single 100) with special fear of heights. I suggest traveling by cable car, or traveling by cable car with relatively poor physical strength. We went up from Cableway 6. Super Beauty is quiet, but it's a little soft in the calves, so we can start climbing. If we are not physically fit, we can go down the 14 towers by cable car (if we have to pay twice). We have been up to the 20 towers and think it's the highest peak there. But the most exciting thing is just the beginning. There is a big stone blocking the way up in the tallest tower and it is written that it is not open to the outside world. But many people climb over the wall and continue to climb up. We also went up. After that, the Great Wall keeps its original appearance very well. The stones are the stones of the original Great Wall, not the ones that were renovated later. After climbing up to a top, there were many trees. Many tourists left wishes on the trees. No one cleaned and maintained the trees, so garbage could be seen everywhere. But the original appearance of the Great Wall could not be ignored. It's even more surprising to walk in. Only narrow paths can be taken and trees and grass are everywhere. In a moment, people forget that we are on the Great Wall. The more backward we go, the more rugged and uneven the rocks are, the more dangerous it is. In some places, it's only about 50 cm wide. One side is a tree, the other side has no shelter, like a cliff. In fact, as long as you are willing to climb down, you will see the most primitive features of the Great Wall. Down the hill, we chose the cable car, because it was too tired, so we got down at 14 towers. If you want to see the shape of the original Great Wall, you must not miss it. What's more, there are fewer people, the higher the number, the fewer people! After all, we are going to appreciate the magnificence of the Great Wall instead of seeing the crowds of people. That's the real meaning of climbing the Great Wall.

    Take the subway to Dongzhimen Station in the morning. Take the 916 Express Line at the left-hand Dongzhimen Transportation Hub after leaving the station. Be sure to make the Express Line! After getting off at Huairou North Street Station in about an hour, someone asked to go to Mutianyu, and 50 yuan chartered car was sent to the entrance of the scenic spot. Be sure to bring some dry food and water in moderation, and then brush your cell phone two-dimensional code and cash it into the scenic area. There are many foreigners and beautiful women. There are more foreigners visiting the Wild Great Wall. Be sure to buy a ferry ticket or walk nearly 3 kilometers. Tickets are booked on the internet. When you arrive at the scenic spot, you can directly brush your cell phone two-dimensional code to take the ferry. After getting off, you can cash the ropeway ticket first, and then brush your cell phone two-dimensional code to enter the scenic spot to take the ropeway up the hill. Children are very excited to make ropeways and slideways. Online booking is also very convenient. They go directly to the entrance to report the order number for tickets. I'm on the ropeway up and down. After climbing the Great Wall, go back to the place of the lower ropeway and take a pulley down the hill. The slideway is fun, fun! The only disadvantage is that the idea is not exhaustive. Children should be seated with adults. My children are 8 years old and over 60 can't ride on the slide. The ropeway up the mountain is fearful of heights, so we should pay attention to safety. Mutianyu Great Wall is really good, you can't see the flag, most foreigners, children are suitable to go to the Big Corner Tower side of the tour, the journey is short, not that tired. Ferry bus must take, unless you are physically excellent, otherwise you will make the effort of flood and famine, ha ha ha!

    On July 27, 2017, the weather is very good. Take the subway to Dongzhimen in the morning, walk to Dongzhimen bus hub, and then take 916 to Huairoubei Street. The ticket price is 12 yuan, and brush the Beijing Municipal Bus Card for 6 yuan, about one and a half hours. Take a taxi from Huairoubei Street to Mutianyu Great Wall Ticket Office for 50 yuan, about half an hour. If you are physically able, you only need to buy 40 yuan and ferry tickets to go there. It took us only half an hour to walk slowly to enemy building No. 6. It wasn't too tired, so we went to the top of the Great Wall. We arrived at the top of the Great Wall at 10:30 and took a rest while walking until we reached the enemy building No. 23. Then we went on to arrow-button the Great Wall. My brother took a short walk. At about 2 p.m., we started to return. We got down very quickly and returned by ferry. It was only 4:20 to Huairoubei Street by taxi. Seven people took a 70-yuan van. Then we returned to Beijing by 916.

    amazing experience! We went up the chairlift to gate 6 then walked up to 20 and back down to take the slide which I would highly recommend. The whole thing took us around 3.5 hours. could have done it faster,but loved to take our time and looked at the beautiful scenery.

    This is the second time to go to the Great Wall. I went to Badaling for the first time a few years ago. Although I was still shocked by the magnificence of the Great Wall, there were too many tourists, and the wall was engraved with the names of three and four Li-si.................................... Why destroy precious historical sites, so the overall feeling is always somewhat regrettable. This trip to Mutianyu, there are a lot fewer tourists. We choose the ropeway to Tower No. 6, then go back to Tower No. 1, then go forward to Terminal No. 20. Between No. 19 and No. 20, almost vertical uphill is a very challenging period. After all, we have been walking for several hours, close to the physical limit, and our legs begin to tremble. The closer we get to the end point, the more difficult it is. ! When we reached platform 20, we found that there was still a section of wild Great Wall behind the wall. It was clear that the Great Wall was very tired. We still went over the wall and reached the real end of Mutianyu. If the physical strength is good, it is suggested to go to the wild Great Wall which has not been repaired and maintained, to truly feel the mottled historical relics, and to better appreciate the confrontational years in that space-time background. Down the hill, we chose a taxiway and took a pulley all the way down the hill from Tower 6. It was very interesting.

    If you dont like crowds this is the wall to visit! You can take the cable car up or walk up (like I did!). Although the walj up was steep and slow once on the wall its fairly flat so it was quiet enjoyable to walk on this wall. I then took the toboggan down which was the most exciting thing Ive ever done! I think this wall is a better one if you want to take your kids and you can also take your kids on the toboggan!

    Share my trip to the Great Wall. I took my family to Beijing to climb the Great Wall. I knew Badaling was crowded. I found Mutianyu Great Wall. It is said that it is the world's largest Great Wall. I saw a traveling book "Mutianyu Great Wall 2018 Travel Strategy" in Ctrip. It was well written and decided to go to Mutianyu. Let's start with transportation. I booked the scenic spot through train "Mubus" (Ctrip Lisou: Mutianyu Great Wall scenic spot through train" to find it). Although some people suggest taking bus 916 to Huairou and reversing H23, I find it inconvenient. First, it is troublesome to reverse. Second, it is too time-consuming. As a lazy person, I must focus on climbing the Great Wall. The fact proves that Mu Bus is very good. The most outstanding impression Mu Bus gives me is that their on-board tour guides are of great quality. They both speak English and Chinese and elaborate on the strategy of how to visit the Great Wall. This is something I have never experienced before. It takes one and a half hours to get to the scenic spot by Mu Bus, which saves a lot of money by eliminating the ferry. According to the guide's plan for us, I chose "Mutianyu Great Wall Walk" and my route was like this - "Great Wall ticket gate-take a cable car to reach No. 14 beacon tower-No. 15-No. 16-No. 17-No. 19-No. 20 beacon tower in Haohanpo, the highest point-continue to explore the ancient Great Wall-No. 21-No. 22-No. 23-No. 25 beacon tower-then return to No. 14. No. 14 beacon tower, take a cable car down the hill. Speaking about the feelings of the West Front, it takes about 3.5-4 hours to walk down like this. It is suitable for some friends who exercise normally. If you are not physically fit, it is good to strive for the 20th. On this way, I personally feel that it can be divided into three sections - "The first section is from No. 14 beacon towers to No. 18 beacon towers after the cable car comes down, which is a section of "sightseeing Great Wall". Characterized by beautiful scenery, tourists such as weaving, the slope is relatively slow, most of the tours will be concentrated in this section. The second paragraph is from No. 19-20 beacon tower, which is a section of "Great Wall of Heroes", characterized by high slope and long distance. It is the longest beacon tower of the Great Wall. After resting and adjusting in the middle, I climbed the beacon tower No. 20. When I stood at the highest point of the Great Wall, looking down on the earth, I suddenly remembered the poem of the great leader Chairman Mao in "Qinyuan Spring * Snow" - "the scenery of the North Country, thousands of miles of ice-sealed, ten thousand miles of snow. Gone with the wind. Looking inside and outside the Great Wall, only Yu Mang Mang; up and down the river, suddenly lost. Generation Tianjiao, Genghis Khan, only knows how to bend bows and shoot big carvings." The third paragraph is No. 21-No. 25 beacon tower, which is a "remnant Great Wall", characterized by "repairing old as old". This is the Great Wall that I like best to see. The Great Wall still retains the sense of vicissitudes of history. There are no tourists around. You can feel the intimate contact with the Great Wall and feel the heavy feeling of crossing history.

    I did the Badaling hike 3 years ago, but I don't remember it as mesmerizing as Mu Tian Yu side was this time. Not as crowded as Badaling, it was a teue delight to spend a whole day hiking.
