Trip Highlights - Attractions involved: Mutianyu section is regarded as the essence of China Great Wall. Hiking on Great Wall is a must-do activity during China trip. If you want to choose a section of the Great Wall in Beijing with medium distance, fewer people, good hiking condition, full travel facilities, and most importantly, the magnificent and primitive scene, most travel guide books will suggest Mutianyu. Located in Huairou County about 45 miles from Beijing, Mutianyu connects Juyongguan Pass in the west and Gubeikou Great Wall in the east. It is the main defensive fortification to the north of Beijing and has protected the capital and the nearby Ming Tombs for many hundreds of years. Mutianyu Great Wall tour is also famous for enjoying the breath-taking beautiful scenery. Woods cover over 96% of the total scenic area. So it gained the honor as the most beautiful Great Wall in China.
The Ming Tombs (Ding) is one of the most attractive travel spots in Beijing. It located about 50 kilometers from downtown Beijing at Tianshou Mountain in Changping District. It was built within a natural basin, butted on two sides by the Yanshan Mountain Range, which was said to stop winds carrying evil spirits into the area. This imperial cemetery covers an area of 40 square kilometers with 13 Ming emperors, 23 empresses, many imperial concubines, princes and princesses buried there. These tombs are the best preserved of all Chinese imperial tombs.
