OverviewCombine a trip to one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Wall of China at the Mutianyu section, with a bus tour of the Ming Tombs, Ding Mausoleum, and Olympic stadiums in Beijing city.
This full-day tour by air-conditioned bus takes you north of Beijing to the relaxing mountains and streams surrounding the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China. You will also visit the Ming Tombs of the Changping District and stop for photos at the Bird’s Nest Stadium and Water Cube, two of the most iconic buildings from the 2008 Olympic Games.
Drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, which provides a more challenging climb than the more popular Badaling section. Snaking its way through the Yanshan Mountains, the wall contains interesting features, such as densely packed watchtowers and crenelated parapets. A cable car avoids the need to climb the 1,400 steps to the summit, where you will be rewarded with staggering views of the mountains.
You will also visit the Ming Tombs, located on the southern slope of Tianshou Mountain. 13 Ming Dynasty emperors were buried in the area after the third Ming emperor Yongle moved the Chinese capital from Nanjing to Beijing in 1420. The incredible complex includes a 4-mile (7 kilometer) road named the "Spirit Way," lined with statues of guardian animals that lead to the entrance. Explore the Ding Mausoleum, where excavations have unearthed important objects for the study of the history of the Ming Dynasty.
To round off this trip to some of China’s most ancient sites, contrast Beijing of the past with Beijing of the future and visit the striking Water Cube and Bird’s Nest structures, built for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
