Mutianyu Great Wall Travel Tips
Three Ways to Go up to Mutianyu Great Wall
When you get off the ferry shuttle bus going from the shuttle bus terminal near the ticketing office, you still need to walk along an accessible stone path (600 meters long) leading up first to the starting point for chairlift (or toboggan down), second to the walking path up to the Wall and last to the starting point for cable car up to the Wall respectively.
So the mostly used Cable Car Station is at the end of the 600-meter stone slope. That said, there are three ways to go up to Mutianyu Great Wall.
1) Taking chairlift to the Great Wall – to the 6th Watchtower (or where you can take a toboggan down)
