Visited in December and had the wall basically to myself. Wonderful views, amazing history as explained by my private tour guide. Cable car was great. Heading up towards the final peak there are over 500 stairs so make sure you are physically fit! High recommend, a beautiful place with a tragic history. Such a shame so many shops there were closed - please buy a magnet or something to support these businesses if you go!

When we went in December 2020 we had the wall pretty much to ourselves. To get here we hired a local guide that picked us up from our hotel and bought all of our tickets. This included a cable car ride up and the slide down. The slide is fun but the awkward positioning hurt my groin a bit. There are some shops up here but most of them close during the winter it seems. There is a wild (original) section of the wall here that is very easy to see! One of the many highlights of the trip included these two cats that followed us through a couple of the towers!

My experience at the Mutianyu Great Wall was spectacular! From top of the wall, I had a great view of what was below us. It's also great for photoshoots. I really enjoyed my experience there and would definitely visit it again.

Just what you’d expect and more. Great views. Great time. And a nice spot for dumplings after a cold walk on the wall.

I have visited Badaling , Simatai and Mutianyu great wall and MutianYu stands out to be the best .Less crowded a bit more expensive then Badaling but great scenery . The eating places at the base of the Great wall before you take the cable car are also nice . There is even a Burger King , so you need not pack you food . The best thing to do is to go for overnight stay in nearby boutique hotels . That will make the trip worth the while.
