What To Expect

Mutianyu Great Wall
The Great Wall at Mutianyu is located around 75 kilometres outside Beijing in Huairou County. This section of the wall is slightly less crowded than its popular brother at Badaling and has a more rugged feeling compared to other parts. We’re scheduled to leave Beijing at around 8.30 am for a drive through the countryside as we head out to the starting point of ascending the Great Wall of China ourselves. We start our approach by taking a cable car from nearby the parking lot, up to the main access point as your guide will explain in detail all there is to know.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Olympic Park
After having explored the Great Wall, and before we head back to Beijing, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. A selection of Chinese dishes, suitable for the western palette, will be freshly prepared. En route to your hotel, we will make a quick stop at the 2008 Olympic Grounds the unique Bird’s Nest and Water Cube remain some of the most striking Olympic designs.

We expect to be back to the city at around 3.30 am depending on traffic.
