Explore one of the best preserved parts of the Great Wall – Mutianyu Great Wall, boasting 22 kilometers of watchtowers and surrounded by lush greenery and stunning forested hills. Opened to the public back in 1986, this part of the wall is located 80 kilometers north-east of Beijing. Due to its more remote located, this part of the wall is far less visited, so you won't be fighting for space with other tourists. After a convenient early morning pick up, you will set off on a scenic drive past China’s mesmerizing countryside and once there, enjoy an all-round tour of Mutianyu Great Wall. Take a short break over an authentic lunch at a local restaurant. You can even a ride on the Great Wall Cable Car!
Book a private transfer and save your energy for the hike across one of the best preserved sections of the Great Wall of China! Compared to more popular sections such as Badaling, the Great Wall at Mutianyu is less crowded and is a good destination during hot summer months. This section also boasts of several rare watchtowers, such as Zhengguan Terrace, that are seldom seen along other sections. You’ll be picked up from your hotel in central Beijing early morning and transported to the Mutianyu Great Wall, about 40 miles away, in an air-conditioned vehicle. Upon arriving, you can purchase entry tickets at your own expense and start your Mutianyu adventure right away! This section has been renovated, making it easier and safer to climb, and has also been equipped with a cable wagon system that caters to senior citizens. You’ll have enough time to explore this magnificent site before the afternoon ride back to your hotel.
My tour guide Mike gave us the background history of great wall, which is informative. He gave insights on what to look out before we start our climb ...... which is helpful so that we know what to look out for!! In addition, Miake is also very resourceful and informative whenever I asked advice on Beijing even though is not related to this trip!! I truly enjoyed my trip there as he ensured all of us are taken care of.
transportation on time. Fred as our Guide, very friendly and informative person. he take care of us well. The lunch is buffet. Delicious. The trip to Great wall china was so cold coz winter but worth the money coz beautiful snow mountain view. Climbing the Great wall was adventurous and fun. Fred help us buying the cable car tickets for both ways. cable car stopped at point 14. so the rest of point 15 to 20, we slowly brisk walking, taking photos and enjoying the magnificent view. This trip is a MUST to go if going to Beijing.

We had very wonderful experience with our Mutianyu Greatwall tour,Klook arranged our tour with very comfortable in our side, specially having a 2 year old toddler we will not able to do this alone. From pre-tour information upto picking up to our hotel they see to it that they can handle us even we have don't have phone numbers or chat messages. Our tour guide Mike made sure that everything will be fine and hassle free. Our van also was big, good enough for us with so many stuffs to bring for our child. Mike is our English tour guide, because of him we were able understand the tour information, he gave facts not only about Greatwall and it's history, but as well as Beijing itself, which is additional bonus factor to us tourist. I have learned a lot of history about Beijing. I can guarantee that Klook is the most reliable tour booking so far.
And of course the foods were GREAT, they offered the best of the best of traditional Chinese Cuisine along with the tour, we also didn't wait for long time to order, food were served immediately. By the way this is my first time booking with Klook and I will make sure to book again once I will travel again.
For easier understanding of
my classic package n attraction:
*Klook worked with local bus transport co for return transfer Beijing City fr/to Mutianyu Great Wall
*Pick up at my hotel lobby located between Beijing 2nd and 3rd ring road (good to check with operator via Klook to confirm if your hotel is within pick-up area). If doesn't then you need to make your way to bus departure pt near Swissotel, possible via subway
*Klook upon booking will send confirmation followed by tour voucher
*Local operator will send email confirmation and on lobby pick up time. Will also call accommodation reception to convey message if pick up time changes
*Pick up (a passenger van in my case) drop me at bus departure point where bus leave abt 8am arriving 1.5hr at abt 9.40am
*Local guide will allocate each package purchasing customer/group an identification number. Also describe the various ride option not included in package so you could buy ticket from them without queuing at counter
*3 option up to great wall which has 20 towers (also term as level) at highest tower
A:- Walk (no additional charges except entry fee)
B:- Cable car (RMB 120 rtn, 100 for one way up or down) to/from tower 14
C:- Chairlift (RMB 120 rtn, 100 for one way up or down) to/from tower 6. Option to take toboggan slide down
**I chose cable up to level 14, walk down to level 6 and take toboggan down to base level
Note that Great Wall is constructed over series of mountains terrains so while you head down from the higher level to lower level, you actually still had to walk up and down (sometime) steep path of the Great Wall. And it gets very tiring
Bring own breakfast and drinks as food there can get a bit expensive
*Abt 30mins before destination, bus will stop for 10mins toilet break. Quick purchase of gloves etc. allowed if you requires but within 10mins given
*Included in package is entry ticket (40 RMB) to great wall attraction.
*Included cost for a shutter service from common public transport drop off pt to great wall entry pt as operator pay to drive their bus up to near Great Wall entrance area
*Bus final stop at a bus park where guide show chinese restaurant (lunch included in classic package) location and issue various tickets under package and any additional tickets (not included in package) you may purchase during bus ride
*2pm meet at restaurant for lunch
*3pm rtn to city drop off (near Swissotel) abt 4.30pm
It was awesome, as stated it provide pickup shuttle from hotel, and a day before they had called in to my hotel room to confirm the timing and emailed me. The tour guide Steven is helpful too in providing us guidance for our Great wall and also the popular places to go while were in Beijing. It was a great experience to explore Mutianyu Great wall. Great Job!!
