Although on photos or TV the Great Wall makes sort of better impression than in real life it is still worth to get there and see it on your own.

It's just breath taking. Words can't explain it. You have to see it! It's possible to walk over the wild part of the wall.

Visited Mutianyu Great Wall in a layover tour. William was the best possible guide...just can't say enough to thank him for this bucket-list experience for me and my 16-year-old daughter. Don't miss the toboggan ride back down!

The road to the Great Wall is a continuous uphill climb through the stairs provided. One should be physically fit and needs patience in order to reach the wall. But when you reach the wall it was just a feeling of accomplishment.

Still there are quite a lot of people during my visit. Not as easy access as Badaling, reach Dongzhimen, take 916 Express to HuaiRouBei Main street, and took a cab to Mutianyu's entrance.

We visited here with a 2 yr old and 6 yr old. Great place to visit. Well maintained. Couple of points of advise if travelling with young kids. No point in taking a stroller. You cannot use it. Try not to take the ski lift...More

If you have enough time and are willing, you can hike past the restored section of the wall and to the "off-limits", rougher part of the wall. It's not truly off-limits - it's just not restored for tourist traffic and you won't see vendors along...More

The bathrooms are pretty clean and they do have a couple of western style bathrooms. however, there aren't actually that many along the wall itself.

Mutianyu section of the Great Wall is about 70km north of Beijing - about 1.5 - 2 hours drive depending on traffic.
