In the morning, you will be picked up at your hotel in downtown Beijing and head to the Mutianyu Great Wall.
The Great Wall of China is a feat of human ingenuity. The construction of the Great Wall started as early as the Spring and Autumn period. During that time and the following Warring States period, different states such as Qin, Wei, Zhao, etc. built several walls to defend their own borders. At the end of the Warring States period, Ying Zheng, King of Qin State, conquered his opponents and united China again as a great empire. He joined the walls together. Since then, the Great Wall has been rebuilt, made bigger and stronger.
Today you will hike up the Great Wall from the No. 6 watchtower to the No. 20 watchtower and then return to No. 6 watchtower. From No. 6 watch tower, you may take the toboggan ride down the Great Wall, which is optional. Today's hiking is all on the restored section of Great Wall so it is not challenging. After the hiking trip, you will be driven back to your hotel.
