Things to do in China

A quiet spot along the Great Wall

No visit to China would be complete without visiting the Great Wall and this section at Mutianyu is one of the most beautiful…

Lily Li
Product Manager at Asian Trails, Alfred&'s partners in China

Surrounded by woodland and streams, escape the crowds and see for yourself just how remarkable this famous landmark is. This quieter section is the best place to really soak up the magnitude of the wall and take a moment to bathe in the stillness and tranquillity.

Restored in the early 1980s, the Great Wall at Mutianyu used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and imperial tombs in the Ming Dynasty. History and photography lovers will be in their element as we gently hike between the watchtowers admiring the elaborate brickwork and miles of panoramic views.

Once we’ve finished exploring it’s up to you how you want to get down. If your legs have had enough walking guests are welcome to take the cable car or if you’d like to try something a little different, the 10-minute toboggan slide down to the entrance is lots of fun- it’s impossible to get off without a smile on your face!
