  • Sehr schoen, nicht so voll wie Badaling, hinauf geht's mit dem Sessellift, hinab mit dem Rodel.

  • Hat mir gut gefallen. Es waren nicht so viele Menschen dort. Der Mauerabschnitt ist sehr beeindruckend gelegen und leicht von Beijing aus zu erreichen (Wir hatten ein Taxi für 500 RMB gechartert).

  • Take a Fresh Air Break at Mutianyu Great Wall! Despite the hundreds of buses that visit daily, the Great Wall at Mutianyu is not as crowded as the nearby Badaling or Juyongguan sections of the Wall. Mutianyu’s 2.5 kilometer stretch of the Wall allows you to walk for more than an hour as you explore 22 watchtowers and the valley on both sides of the Wall. In late afternoon, or in poor weather, you often might find yourself alone with only the sound of the wind to keep you company. Travel back in time and see the Wall as it was when it was built hundreds of years ago. The relative scarcity of tourists stems from the location of Mutianyu in Huairou county of Beijing. Local tour companies maximize their profit by maximizing the stops they make along the way, including at different markets and souvenir factories. Part of Mutianyu’s charm is that it isn’t part of the same tourist racket, although more and more shops are beginning to line the way up to the village. In protected parkland, Mutianyu village and Great Wall maintain their old way of life, and only at the gate to the park will you find hawkers trying to sell you t-shirts and beer. www.beijingtripadvisor.com
