The Great Wall workout.

There is a cable car up to the wall, which is why it is more crowded than other parts of the wall. We chose to walk rather than take the cable car, which saved some money. Regardless, it's a great experience. Bring plenty of water if you plan on going in the summer and wear proper shoes.

I was visiting Beijing for work, and decided to take some friends to visit the Great Wall. Badaling is almost always filled with tourists, so we went to Mutianyu. Our visit was timed for the finish of three days of solid rain. The sky was incredibly clear, impossibly clear for those who are familiar with the typical pollution levels in north China. We went early in the morning, so there were very few people. We had an outstanding hike along the wall, and I must confess, the steep stairs utterly tortured my legs. I am standing in the airport as I write this review, and days later, my thighs and calves are still stiff. This is a great place to visit, if you are in north China, and a great place for a hike in China.

I have hiked Mutianyu a few times over the years, and it never gets boring.

This trail is rather easy. One can say there is nothing spetacular about it. However, the waterfalls and the ponds in the area make the trip worthwhile. Beijing lacks wather and waterfalls.

very intesting. it combines the historical artifacts with outdoor activity. highly recommend.
