Mutianyu and Great Wall Tour
In the northern part of Huairou County some 70 kilometers north-east of Beijing City,
the Mutianyu (Mu Tian Yu) section of the Great Wall stretches its way for over 2
kilometers. This section is well preserved and is a good alternative for visitors who would like to avoid crowds along the highly popular Badaling
(Ba Da Ling) section during holiday and peak seasons.
