Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall, 2017/3/08
Fourteen photos from the hike from Jiankou to the Mutianyu Great Wall, with blue skies and superb views.
The Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall hike is popular because you get a look at both repaired and unrepaired Great Wall.
We start off at a small village at Jiankou and hike hill trails up to the General’s Tower. At nearly 1,000m above sea level the views from the tower are excellent, with all the steep and dramatic lines of Jiankou’s unrepaired Great Wall in sight.
The hike continues along unrepaired wall and into the park area at at Mutianyu, where the wall has been repaired and looks like it might have when first built way back in the Ming Dynasty.
On this visit we had clear air and blue skies, which is great for photography – photos below!
