This tour can be done if you have a long layover in Beijing. It takes about 5 hours minimum, including travel to and from the airport. Very much worth it, and one of the best preserved sections of the Great Wall.

The views and the magnitude of the wall are amazing. The gondola ride makes the trip easier. Be aware that the walk on the wall can get very steep, and expect to pay very inflated (10x) prices at the shops.

The ski lift was slightly questionable in terms of safety but we absolutely loved the experience! We loved the slide so much we briefly considered riding it again but then realized we would have to do the ski lift again!

The wall is about 70 km from Beijing. You can reach by taxi with a bus to the point of collecting hikers. You have to buy a bus ticket that goes back and forth. Tickets must be bought back and forth to the cable car....More

Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall of China located in Huairou District. We went there early in the morning, less crowded and got nice view from cable car. You can also choose to come down by toboggan slide.
