Features
Family-friendly

Avoid the crowds at Badaling and head to Mutianyu, a restored section of the Great Wall about a mile and a half long. Its crenelated parapet and smooth, wide walkway make it ideal for families and visitors with limited mobility. Cables and chairlifts run between the wall and the main gates; you can also take a toboggan down the eastern end of the section.
