Mutianyu Great Wall:
The Mutianyu section of the Great Wall is situated in Huairou District, about 70km from Beijing. As one of the most popular restored great wall sections in Beijing, Mutianyu offers a relaxing journey to a higher point of the great wall by cable car service. The architecture of this section is in a special style that it has more watchtowers than any other section and was constructed with defensive battlements on both sides of the wall, rather than just facing to the north, as with most other sections.The Mutianyu Great Wall is surrounded mountains and has forest coverage of around 90%. As such, it’s year round scenery it enjoys the reputation of being one of the most beautiful areas of the Great Wall.
