Great Wall at Mutianyu (慕田峪长城) Posted by sasha on Jan 7, 2011 in Culture, Uncategorized
About 100 km outside of Beijing lies the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Representing just one of the many sections of the 6,000+ km long wall, this area is easily accessible from China’s capital city, is not quite as full of tourists as other sites and is restored enough to make the climb up convenient enough while at the same time retaining some of its ancient history. It’s a perfect day-trip out of the city, and a great Chinese history lesson at the same time.
