Certificate of Excellence
We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Tour Description
Pick up from your hotel in Beijing around 8:00am and drive to Jinhai Lake (1.5 hours). Lake is situated to the south of the Grand Gold Mount ( well known for producing gold), hence the name of “Jinhai lake” which literally means “Golden Lake”. Now Jinhai Lake has been turned into a recreational and sightseeing area suitable for mountain hiking and and lakeside vacationing. Plentiful activities on the lake including yacht, speed boat, self-driving boat, flying umbrella above water, pedalo, rowing boat and many more ( not included in our day trip). Drive along the road around Jinhai Lake, viewing the colorful leaves of persimmon trees, smoke trees,chestnuts and more. 

Jinhai Lake

After visiting the Jinhai Lake, continue to drive to Lady Lee’s courtyard home in Diaowo Village (1.5 hour). Driving alongside Huangsongyu Reservoir, you soon enter the picturesque Diaowo Village in Pinggu District of Beijing. The village has 54 households with over 100 villagers. Today you will meet Mrs Li and her husband Mr. Hao in their courtyard home. A few years ago Mrs. Li retired and left the busy downtown Beijing and relocated to her husband birth place for spending the retirement life. Now she eats the vegetables she plants in her front yard and the Geese & Chickens in her back yard, enjoying an organic living and healthy life. You will have a home lunch made by Lady Li. Lady Li speaks some English, so this will be helpful to your mutual communication.

Dining at Ms Lee's Home

Saying good-bye to Lady Li, move on to the Mutainyu Great Wall (2 hour hiking). The Mutianyu Great Wall is quite famous for its autumn foliage. It has an extremely beautiful natural landscape once you are up on the wall, covered all over by colorful leaves, yellow and red, densely wooded. The some bits of the Mutianyu Great Wall are also overshadowed by green cypresses and red maples, smoke trees,chestnuts and more. Back to your hotel after the autumn excursion.

Mutianyu Great Wall Travel Tips

Three Ways to Go up to Mutianyu Great Wall

There are three ways to get onto the Wall. Apart from hiking up on foot, you can choose take cable car or chair lift(Optional).

To get down the wall, you can also take Toboggan slide down(Optional).

When you get off the ferry shuttle bus going from the shuttle bus terminal near the ticketing office, you still need to walk along an accessible stone path (600 meters long ) leading up first to the starting point for chairlift ( or toboggan down ), second to the walking path up to the Wall and last to the starting point for cable car up to the Wall respectively.

So the mostly used Cable Car Station is at the end of the 600-meter stone slope. That said, there are three ways to go up to Mutianyu Great Wall.

1) Taking chairlift to the Great Wall – to the 6th Watchtower ( or where you can take a toboggan down)

2) Walking up the Great Wall along the stone steps (like a mountain hike – 30 minute hike) – to the 10th or 8th Watchtower

3) Taking cable car up to the Great Wall – to the 14th Watchtower

The Most Beautiful Part of Mutianyu Great Wall

The hike from Watchtower No. 14 east up to Watchtower 23 is the most scenic part of Mutianyu Great Wall. Many people would choose to take cable up to Watchtower No.14 and hike east to Watchtower No.23. You may retrace to Watch Tower No.14 and take cable car down the wall, or continue to hike down to Watch Tower No.8 and walk down the wall; or you may continue to hike down to Watch Tower No.6, then either take chairlift down or toboggan down.
