Mùtiányù Great wall
In 1368 AD, Mùtiányù Great Wall was built under the supervision of Xu Da, the great general under Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang, on the ruins of the Great Wall built in Northern Qi Dynasty. Linked to Gubeikou in the east and Juyongguan in the west, this section of the Great Wall has been the capital’s major military defence since anciernt times. It boasts watchtowers such as Zhengguantai, Dajiaolou, Yingfeidaoyang, Jiankou and Beijingjie, all with profound historical and cultural value.
Mountainous surroundings and a 98% greening rate make its scenery delicate. Known for its unique landscape, Mutianyu is one of the essential sections of the Great Wall of Ming Dynasty. Mutianyu features fresh air, embrasures on both sides, peculiar pass buildings, intensive watchtowers, a strong stereoscopic impression and both inside and outside branches. Tourist facilities such as enclosed cable cars, slides, China Dream Stone City, Great Wall Villa and Yisonglou Restaurant are offering all-around services. It was listed as a national 5A-level scenic spot in 2011.
The Comprehensive Service Center was put into use on June 28th, 2014. The 8-hectare service center includes a tourist center, a Great Wall Culture Exhibition Center, and a street for catering and souvenirs. In this way, Mutianyu Great Wall can provide better travel experiences.
Mùtiányù is a recently renovated stretch of Wall that sees a lot of tourists and is fairly easy to reach from Běijīng. It’s also well set up for families, with a cable car, a chairlift and a hugely popular toboggan ride. Far fewer tour groups come here than go to Bādálǐng, so the crowds are much more manageable.
With 26 watchtowers, the wall is impressive and manageable, with most hawking reserved to the lower levels (hawkers go down to around ¥15 for cotton ‘I climbed the Great Wall’ T-shirts): the further you get away from Mùtiányù central the better. From the ticket office at Mùtiányù, there are three or four stepped pathways leading up to the wall, plus a cable car , a chairlift , called a 'ropeway' on the signs here, and a toboggan ride , making this ideal for those who can’t manage too many steps, or who have kids in tow.
