Mutianyu (Chinese: 慕田峪; pinyin: Mùtiányù) is one of the popular sections of the Great Wall of China, easily accessible from central Beijing. Unlike Badaling, which has a train station about 800 minutes from the wall, Mutianyu has no train station. Visitors normally arrange a car from Beijing (anywhere between RMB 450 and 700), or use one of the tour bus arrangements provided from several places in Beijing in the summer season.
The Mutianyu section of the wall is one of the most pictured ones. It is also older than the Badaling section. It has originally been built during the Northern Qi period, about 2,500 years ago and restored in the 16th century during the Ming Dynasty. The fact that the wall here has many watch towers and leads to a pass make it very picturesque.
