Exploring Mutianyu Great Wall: A Comprehensive Guide

When visiting Mutianyu Great Wall, you have the opportunity to choose from three distinct routes, each offering a unique experience and breathtaking views:

West Route: Take the panoramic cable car for a 360-degree view, arriving at the 14th Watchtower. This tower features an observation platform often used for major events at Mutianyu Great Wall. Activities like New Year's sunrise observation, the lighting ceremony of the Great Wall at night, and large-scale events take place here. If the weather is clear, you can capture stunning shots of the Great Wall alongside the CBD skyline. Ascend to the 20th Watchtower, the highest point at an elevation of 1039 meters, providing a panoramic view of the Great Wall and the surrounding city.

Middle Route: Explore the segment between the 14th and 6th Watchtowers, accessible by taking the cable car to the 14th Watchtower, walking to the 6th Watchtower, and descending on the toboggan slide. This section offers a view of the outer supporting wall located at the 11th Watchtower. Supporting walls are constructed outside the main Great Wall as needed for military strategy, creating additional defenses. In Mutianyu, the outer supporting wall connects to the wall at the 11th Watchtower, while the inner supporting wall extends south from the General Tower, known as the "Bare Tail Edge."

East Route: Ascend using the cable car to the 6th Watchtower, walk down two watchtowers, and reach the distinctive 4th Watchtower – Zhengguantai. This structure consists of three interconnected hollow watchtowers, serving as the command center for Mutianyu Great Wall. It stored supplies and troops underground while providing observation points on the upper level. Zhengguantai is also the lowest point in elevation along Mutianyu Great Wall. The highest point on the East Route is the General Tower, nearly 600 meters above sea level, connecting three different sections of the Great Wall. Its unique shape, resembling a corner from every angle, gives it the name "General Tower."

Each route offers a distinctive experience, allowing you to appreciate the architectural marvels, historical significance, and natural beauty of Mutianyu Great Wall. Additionally, you can make your descent on the thrilling toboggan slide, Asia's longest, providing an exhilarating and controlled return to nature with manual speed and brake control. Ensure a safe and enjoyable journey by maintaining a safe distance from the person in front of you.
