Mutianyu Great Wall
To the east of the Great Wall at Ba Da Ling and 70 kilometers from the city is this restored section of the Great Wall. This three-kilometer stretch has 25 beacon towers, watch towers and lodging houses. Historically, the construction here required the largest number of laborers to construct and produced work of extremely high quality. It requires a more rigorous climb than Ba Da Ling, but the views are more striking and there are cable cars to take you to the top and even the option of an exhilarating toboggan ride back down.
People for their own be able to see the seven wonders of this world is proud, I am no exception.
I was fortunate to see this incredible, great Great Wall. It really magnificent, you are not a really man until you 've walked the Great Wall and I have become a hero now..
Mutianyu Great Wall is located in Huairou District, driving from Beijing city center is only 75 km in the north . Whether you take a taxi or by private vehicles are particularly convenient.
When you are out of the parking lot, first of all into your eyes is a long counter top filled with a variety of dried fruit, dried mango, pear, dried apple dried fruit in Hawaii, where famous walnuts, chestnuts and so on .

Mutianyu Great Wall, the existing 22 beacon towers open to visitors. There is direct access to the ski lift and cable car. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has visited here.
The best way is to take the cable car tourist arrival on the 14th beacon tower, turn left, side is relatively steep, marked No. 20 beacon towers have not been open for tourists, but you can walk though a little bit .those who enjoy the more primitive past, not been modified The real claim to the ancient Great Wall, but do not go too far, there are still a certain risk. U-turn back and enjoy the climb you just took tremendous efforts of the Beacon, or standing loud shout. I climbed the Great Wall, I was one hero!
Beacon in the sixth number has a very exciting slide, leading to foot of the mountain. You can try. Stimulation, near misses, like the car driver's seat as chair on the chute, install a manual brake system to keep control of the speed of decline. Incredibly, the Great Wall.

Definitely go to the Great Wall at Mu Tian Yu. It's the other section of the Great Wall near Beijing. The main or more frequented section is Ba Da Ling. When I was there ... November, 2005 ... hardly anyone was around. I felt as if I had the Great Wall to myself ... quite a feeling.
As a documentary photographer, I took numerous stills and video. Many of the stills can be found on Yahoo Travel.
I teach in China, and many of my students have told me, "You're not a man until you've walked the Great Wall." Well, I've walked part of it, so I guess I'm "part man."
The best side to visit The Great Wall is without question the Mutianyu section, by far better than Badaling, less crowded, older, more difficult to go up to (which is good for me) and just prettier. You can have it just for yourself! At the end, ask for this new place called The Schoolhouse, really nice, great western (and chinese) food and relaxing environment, english speaking staff and probably the best bathrooms in China!!
loved this section of the wall. it's not nearly as crowded and you can get some great shots with no one in the background in places....it looks like your on the way all by yourself. when you arrive make sure you only buy a trip up on the gondola and a trip down on the toboggan. its lots of fun. i also bought some coffee table books there that i could not find anywhere else in china.
I visited the Mu Tian Yu Gate in March, 2003. You first run a gauntlet of stalls with vendors selling everything from the usual tacky souvenirs to better quality items and food. If the dried fruit vendor is there, load up. It's wonderful! You do take a cable car up to the western end of the restored section. While you can walk to the west on the unrestored section, it looked like the walkway was not necessarily even. Walking east, you are walking down a lot of very low rise-wide tread stairs. It takes a little getting used to and can get hard on your knees. However, you can stop wherever you want. The scenery is great from there.
Your options to get back to the stalls/parking lot are to walk back up those stairs and take the cable car down or continue east somewhere between a half kilometer and a kilometer where there are two other options. One is a western style open seat chair lift like at a ski lodge. I took that and the wind did bounce it around a lot. The other is a one person toboggan, which reminds me of a one man luge except you sit up and brake with a joystick between your legs as you descend a curving metal chute that even crosses a bridge near the bottom. A friend took that and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Restrooms are in a building between the parking lot and vendor stalls. No facilities up on the wall. Attendants charge you a fee, which the first time was 50 jiao but the second time they tried to charge 2 yuan. They fold the money into triangles so be careful you get the right change back.
