Mutianyu Great Wall

About a hundred kilometers northeast of Beijing in Huairou District, Mutianyu Great Wall is a good compromise between accessibility and crowds of tourists. With the green coverage of more than 90%, the panorama view is impressive. The wall has been renewed here over a little more than 2 kilometers which you can walk along, much more calmly than at Badaling section. The large numbers of bastions and watchtowers make the site even more beautiful in winter and give you some shade in summer. Besides, the souvenir seller is mildly less than at Badaling Great Wall, once passed the line of shops at the entrance. The walk to the summit is easy, but long. A cable car gets you to the highest point from where you can come back down to Mutianyu or even go further towards the less touristy and unrestored parts.
