#1 of 3,911 in Parks in China
Exceptionally well preserved and rich in detail, Mutianyu Great Wall offers visitors an iconic view of China's symbolic World Heritage Site and one of the seven man-made wonders of the world. This segment of the wall was originally built in the 6th century CE during the Northern Qi dynasty and has remained unchanged since 1569. The section boasts many watchtowers and is surrounded by a dense forest, which makes for sweeping scenery. Access the wall by climbing the approximately 4,000 steps, riding the chairlift, or taking the gondola lift.

  • This is a totally stunning place. The views will take your breath away but you will need to get there early to beat the crowds. If you don’t then you will probably have to queue for at least 4 hours i...  more »
  • My second visit to the great wall, in another of the limited sites that you can visit already that not all is in good condition. This part has a chilling sloping sections, and one wonders how to at the Summit of the mountains they could build similar mole. To get to the point more high there is a cable car Chair, as the stations of sky, the landscape is incredible, that if not suitable for those who have vertigo. Once above you can access one of the towers and from there to taste each one, sideways is rise towards another slightly more distant area, the other a very steep descent for then climb other peaks very vertical This wall tamo unlike that had visited on another trip, has rungs, some low-lying and quite high towers, makes it difficult for a little walk, because there are very inclined to one side stretches and converted that added to the slope in a good ejercic IO. The amazing views, worth seeing there is the farthest point where the eye us is snaking wall. After the walk, which will be long and tired, there are two options for lowering, the cable car we use to raise or to my the funniest, down through the metal chute managing a sort of sled that you drive down speed and the brake , the truth a good way to download, fun and something different, good end to a day of adventure.
