Spectacular Great Wall Excursion at Mutianyu

Tour Summary

In this private guided tour, you will travel to the extraordinary 2000-year-old Great Wall of China, one of the most amazing structures ever built by man, spanning nearly 4,000 miles of China‘s northern frontier.

The Great Wall at Mutianyu is about 45 miles northeast of Beijing and enjoys a long history. It connects Juyongguan Pass in the west and Gubeikou Great Wall in the east. The wall was first built in Northern Qi Dynasty (550 - 557). In the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) Tan Lun and Qi Jiguang, two famous generals, rebuilt it in order to strengthen its defensive potential when they guarded the strategic pass. It served as the northern protective screen, guarding the capital and imperial mausoleums for generations.
