Hostel Recommendation.- One Day trip to Mutianyu Great Wall.


To avoid the crowds and sometimes terrifying shopping intervals of the Great Wall at Badaling, our hostel has specially designed and organized a daily tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. It takes 2.5 hours to arrive to the wall with no stop over for shopping, and begins around 6:00am to get away from heavy traffic jams so that you will be the first one standing on the wall there and nobody bothers you. We guarantee you have 4 hours on the wall and no push throughout the whole trip. When you are back from your trip, you still have a whole evening for other activities.

Compared with the Wall trip to Jinshanling and Simatai which takes 6 hours there and 4 hours on the wall and then another 5 hours back, Mutianyu is much less time comsuming and more scenic all the way.
We run the trip to Mutianyu section of the wall with minimum three people by our own car or van. There is no shopping and stop-over during the trip and you will have 4 hours of your own to enjoy the beautiful scenery on the mountain with few tourists.

This trip is highly recommended for those who do not wish to kill off the whole day only for the wall and would like to do something in the evening after the day trip. It starts at 6:00 to 7:00am in the morning from our hostel and takes in total around 6-8 hours for the entire round trip.

Below is an article weve created upon the history and benefits of the Great Wall at Mutianyu


Located in Huairou County about 45 miles from Beijing, Mutianyu Great Wall enjoys a long history and is part of the glorious culture of China. It connects Juyongguan in the west and Gubeikou in the east. The wall was first built in Northern Qi Dynasty (550 - 557). In Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), Tan Lun and Qi Jiguang, two famous patriotic generals, rebuilt it in order to strengthen its defensive potential when they guarded the strategic pass. It served as the northern protective screen, guarding the capital and imperial mausoleums for generations.

Mutianyu Great Wall winds 1.4 miles through lofty mountains and high ridges, many sections of which are made of granite. The unique structure makes the wall almost indestructible.

Besides its strategically important location and compact layout, the Mutianyu Great Wall is also famous for the breath-takingly beautiful scenery. Woods cover over ninety-six percent of the total scenic area. The wall presents different aspects of beauty in the four seasons. Flowers bloom all over the mountains in spring. Grasses dress the hillside green in summer. Trees are laden with sweet fruits in autumn, and especially in October, leaves are turning red or yellow, touching the mountain tops with gold. In winter, the wall is covered by snow, making it seem more magnificent. The pine trees around Mutianyu Great Wall are well-known. There are more than 20 pines over 300 years old and about 200 pines over 100 year old. Besides, spring water at the foot of the wall tastes pure and fragrant, much appreciated by visitors.

What's more is that a first-rate cable car is installed in Mutianyu Great Wall. A sled named 'Speed' will give you an opportunity to experience thrills by swooping down from the high mountains. Nearby, China Stone City collects rare and beautiful stones, attracting more and more visitors to come and have a look!
