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.

    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.

    It was an amazing experience ✨ At this time of the year it wasn't crowded at all, so i suggest to come here in this period. Everything was well taken care of, the whole sight was very clean. I would just have liked to get more cartels with infos and history tips (in english :)). Absolutely recommended

    I strongly recommend friends who like the Great Wall to go! It's much better than Badaling. I went to Badaling once three years ago. At that time, it took two and a half hours to change trains by subway. There were too many people in Badaling. It will be known that Mutianyu Great Wall is very good, but there is no direct subway to the past, the traffic is inconvenient, so it is very cold. But now there are Zambia buses, one-way only one hour, full-speed, convenient and fast, and Zambia bus staff on the bus are overresponsible, check the number of people, help to buy tickets to the Great Wall, inform the attention, determine the gathering time and so on, serious and responsible attitude makes us feel very safe. To Mutianyu under the Great Wall is their own free travel, Mutianyu scenery is really praised, few key people, you want to shoot as you want!

    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!

    慕田峪长城怎么去?怎么玩? 我的一份攻略分享。慕田峪长城,荣登国际知名旅游网站Tripadvisor猫途鹰“排名第一”的长城。号称为“秀美之最”的长城,无论从长城的雄伟气势,还是旅游的体验度,个人认为都全面的超过了“人海之最”的八达岭长城。因此,选择慕田峪长城旅游,更让您全方位的体验“万里长城的魅力”。 慕田峪长城的交通推荐:我乘坐的是“慕巴士MUBUS”,慕田峪长城往返直达巴士,早上8:00市区港澳中心发车,一站直达。往返票价80元。比乘坐916路线更快捷,省去在怀柔换车的麻烦。它的缺点是每天只有这一班,乘坐巴士需要预订。 到达慕田峪长城后,首先需要乘坐摆渡车(双程15元)抵达长城售票口。长城门票45元每人。同时,建议选择双程缆车,或者索道上山。因为如果选择自己步行上山,要走接近700多级台阶,相当于爬了50层楼。基本登上长城后,你就疲惫不堪了,基本没有力气抵达慕田峪长城的最高点第20号烽火台了。所以,乘坐缆车或者索道,是重要的借助工具,帮你实现登上好汉坡的愿望。缆车和索道根据您的意愿任选,个人建议考虑缆车。第1:安全性高。 第2:角度高可以鸟瞰拍摄长城。 第3:抵达第14烽火台,距离最高点20号烽火台最近。乘坐缆车登上长城后,您将位于第14号烽火台,接下来一个问题会困扰你,“我应该往哪一边爬呢”。我给你的答案很明确,请你“一路向西”,向慕田峪长城的第20号烽火台进发。慕田峪第20号烽火台是慕田峪长城景区的“最高点”(好汉坡)。不到长城非好汉,准备好矿泉水,向着好汉坡进发。(预计时间1小时登顶)。其中第19号烽火台至第20号烽火台,是最艰难的一段,坡度高,台阶多,基本上你要休息上1-2次才能通过。慕田峪长城的第20号烽火台,是整个慕田峪长城景区的最高点,但是并不是这段长城的最高点,因为过了20号烽火台,就是进入“未有修复的古长城”了。景区在这里设了一道墙。不让游人通过了。但是因为墙不高,依然有很多游客愿意继续探索。我的意见是,如果你的体力还行的话,那么就通过这道墙,向第23号烽火台前进。从第21号烽火台至第22号烽火台之间,坡度迅速变缓,你将开始触摸到了“历史的长城”,残壁旧砖,显示着一份历史的沧桑。

    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.
