Surrounded by lush green forests and imposing mountain peaks, the Mutianyu Great Wall reaches 2250 meters in length and is one of the more colourful areas of one of the World’s most impressive of man-made wonders. Should you want to embark on a tour of the premises then it is advised that you seek the comfort of serviced apartments in Beijing. The Ascott Beijing known for its Beijing accommodation will be a suitable place from which to commence one’s journey to the Mutianyu Great Wall.
In terms of quality, none of the other areas of the wall add up to what is on display here. With 22 watchtowers evenly spread out across the stretch, one would be afforded breathtaking vistas of this marvellous depiction of ancient engineering. Built with the aid of granite, the wall is also adorned with merlons on both the outer and inner parapets which made firing arrows at the approaching enemy quite an easy task. Tourists wanting to learn of every minute detail of the Great Wall will further have the opportunity to inspect tiny streams that certainly add to the charm of its surroundings. Found in Huairou County, the Mutianyu Great Wall is between 7 to 8.5 meters in height and serves as one of the alluring features of this Chinese masterpiece.
