- Great Wall at Mutianyu: This less-crowded section of the Great Wall is a pleasant drive 90km NE of Beijing. A cable car takes you to a good section (avoiding a very steep climb), where you can walk along the wall, through the watch towers and enjoy superb views as it snakes across the hills and mountains. You can return by cable car, walk down or walk along the wall for about an hour to descend by chairlift. Wear good walking shoes and protection from the weather.
- Mutianyu Cable Car(round trip): It is a challenging climb up to the Mutianyu Great Wall for it is much steeper than Badaling section. Here you have the option of taking the Cable car to the highest point or down to the foot in a few minutes instead of climbing more than 1,400 steps, while you can also have a bird view of the wall.
-Foot Message, after the Great Wall, the most relaxing thing to do is food message, just relax like ancient chinese!!
- Hutong Tours in Rickshaw: A maze of historic alleyways and old single storey traditional courtyard houses, now fast disappearing. Dotted around the hutong are the Drum and Bell Towers, Kindergarten, Tea House, and local people's houses. Your tour includes a visit with a local family.
Great Wall hike option:For the more adventurous, we offer the option of a full day hike on a less visited section of Wall from Jinshanling to Shimatai. Start the day with a 3 hours drive to Jinshanling. A cable car ride takes you to one of the towers from where your hike starts. The total length of this section from Jinshanling to Simatai is about 11km and takes about 4 to 4½ hours. You will past 30 towers and some built with different structure and appearances. Hanging precariously onto the Yanshan Mountain, Simatai Great Wall is known for its steepness, ingenuity and uniqueness. Packed lunch on the wall. At the end of the hike, drive 1.5 hours to Countryside Hotels,or Red Capital Ranch and spend the night in the fresh countryside air there, nestled amongst the villages and enjoy the tranquility or experience the nostalgia of a former Manchurian Hunting Lodge.
