Check out the Great Wall of China's Mutianyu section on this 6-hour independent tour from Beijing. With transportation and entrance fee included, you don't have to worry about how to get to the wall but will be able to walk it on your own, without a guide. The hike can be challenging at times while you climb from the floor of the valley to the top rampart, but you're rewarded with views of the wall running for miles across the tree-covered landscape. (The cable car, shuttle bus, or toboggan to go up and down, if you wish, are at your own expense.)
  • 6-hour independent tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu from Beijing
  • Enjoy round-trip transportation from Beijing hotels
  • Walk along the wall at your leisure to admire the views
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time
After hotel pickup by your driver in Beijing, your tour starts with the 50-mile (75-km) drive to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, one of the wall's best-preserved sections, built under the direction of General Xu Da.

When you arrive after about 90 minutes, begin your self-guided hike; the round-trip journey is 3.7 miles (6 km) and takes about two hours. If you wish to save some energy, you can take the cable car up (own expense), or just hike up the side of the mountain. Then stroll along the wall itself, passing by watchtowers for different views. To get down from the wall, either walk, take the cable car, or ride the toboggan (own expense).

No matter which method you choose, the main attraction is enjoying the beauty of the wall set amid the mountains and dense woods. When you finish hiking, your driver takes you back to Beijing for hotel drop-off.
