Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Plan your Beijing tour in autumn? If you are interested in the fall foliage in Beijing, the best time to visit Beijing falls on between October 15 and November 15 each year when the autumn leaves are at their best – yellow, orange, pink, and red.

There are plentiful places around Beijing for leaf peepers including Mutianyu Great Wall, about 70km north of Beijing. Mutianyu Great Wall is well known for its densely vegetation – smoke trees, persimmon, hawthorn, gingko, torch trees, birch, aspen, hickories, chestnut, walnut, sawtooth oak, jujube and more to beautify Beijing in autumn.

There are totally 23 towers on Mutianyu Great Wall snaking up from east No 01 Tower to west No.23 Tower. You have three ways to reach the Great Wall – walking up either to Tower No.6 or 8; take a chairlift up to the Tower No.06 or a slide down from the tower No.06; take a cable car up to the Tower No.14. Once you are on the wall, you either hike up to the west direction or down to the east direction.
