Stop At: Mutianyu Great Wall, Mutianyu Village, Bohai Town, Huairou District, Beijing China

Mutianyu Great Wall is a section of the Great Wall of China located in Huairou District withing the city limits of Beijing 600 kilometres (370 mi) northeast of the center of the city. The Mutianyu section of the Great Wall is connected with Jiankou in the west and Lianhuachi in the east. As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Great Wall at Huanghuacheng, 60 km (37 miles) N of Beijing, Beijing 102209 China

The section derives its name from the man-made reservoir lakes at the location in close proximity to the Great Wall. Unlike the main tourist sections of the Great Wall at Mutianyu and Badaling, the Lakeside Great Wall only usually draws in a handful of tourists.[3] The section features appealing sights including submerged parts of the Great Wall under the lake water and the view after a steep hike to a high guard tower.

Ich habe die „Sunset Great Wall Tour” mit Leo gemacht und es war eines der besten Erlebnisse meines Lebens! Schon der Kontakt im Voraus war super, Leo hat sehr schnell über WhatsApp geantwortet und so konnte ich nur einen Tag vorher eine private Tour zur Mauer buchen. Ein Fahrer und Leo holten mich pünktlich an meinem Hotel ab und dann folgte eine 2 stündige Fahrt zum ersten Abschnitt der Mauer. Leo erzählte sehr viel über die Geschichte und ich konnte ihn auch wirklich alles fragen was ich wissen wollte. Die Kommunikation war locker und sein Englisch ist wirklich gut. Insgesamt waren wir an zwei verschiedenen Abschnitten der Mauer, einen sehr authentischen unberührten und einen sehr auf Touristen ausgelegten. Beide waren super schön und wir waren auf beiden ganz alleine. Ein echtes Highlight war, dass Leo seine Drohne dabei hatte und so wahnsinnig schöne Aufnahmen von mir auf der Mauer machen konnte; eine bessere Erinnerung daran kann ich mir kaum vorstellen! Das Restaurant in dem wir Mittagessen waren, war auch wirklich unglaublich lecker! Ich kann nur jedem empfehlen eine Tour mit Leo zu buchen, es wird garantiert ein einzigartiges Erlebnis!

We did a 1-day private tour with Leo. Everything was perfect. Great english, very knowledgeable guide, we didn't queue for anything, we learned a lot about China's history and culture. The hiking with the sunset and the red wine was perfect, being there with nobody else enjoying the view was for sure one of the best experiences we ever had. I would recommend anyone going to Beijing to do a trip with Leo. Thanks Leo, this was something we will never forget!

Tony was awesome. We were there for Golden Week so unfortunately traffic was even worse than usual. Knowing that the traffic would be busy he arranged to start the tour earlier so we could make the most of our day and night. We forgot our cable to charge the Go Pro and he even made a stop so we could buy one. He found every way to get us to our destination by driving us through short cuts in town, modifying our tour so we could stay on course and still see both parts of the Great Wall and catch the sunset. Although I wasn’t as prepared as I thought with the heat and the climbing, Tony was very patient and helpful. He even carried my purse for me while walking the Great Wall. He offered to take many photos of us and spoke English well. He’s an excellent tour guide!

Leo was an excellent guide! Travel, pickup, and drop-off was very smooth and easy. The parts of the wall that he took us to were great- one very pristine, restored area and one off the beaten path, by the water where we were the only people. He went above and beyond with a drone video and was able to provide great historic information to go along with the tour. I would definitely do it again!

Such an incredible experience - the highlight of our trip! Leo was a wonderful tour guide, incredibly accommodating, on time and full of helpful facts and interesting conversations. The two areas we toured were incredibly memorable, I was looking into a lot of different tours of different sections of the wall leading up to this trip and am SO glad I chose not only these destinations, but specifically the sunset itinerary. The later start @ 11AM meant that Mutianyu was not very crowded for us at all, we went on a weekday, and for the Huanghuacheng section we basically had the wall to ourselves - we were literally the only people there. While the chair lift, toboggan, and general wall climb at Mutianyu was super fun to explore, the lake side Huanghuacheng was such a unique way to see the wall. The water section is beautiful, and the remoteness of the experience was unreal.

The overcast skies meant we did not actually get a sunset, but I don't think it made a difference for our group. I would say even if you could care less about a sunset this is still an incredible tour, I can imagine on the rare but right day the sun would look incredible over the view we did enjoy though...

Leo and our driver went above and beyond for us - we enjoyed a glass of wine !! at the height of our evening climb, and lunch and the trip down was comfortable and efficient. Leo also brought along a drone camera and sent along a video, which was an unexpected but so appreciated additional activity. We were in China for 10 days and this was hands down my favorite day. Highly recommended for anyone looking to take an incredible day to explore a super unique Great Wall experience.

This was a definitely more of an active day - we were huffing it for sure to get to the top of the wall, so I'd recommend heat-appropriate active wear and good shoes!
