Today we will drive 2 hours to the less visited Great Wall section – Mutianyu. Mutianyu Great Wall is one of the best preserved sections which maintains the features of the Ming Dynasty. It has a rarely seen structure among all sections of the Great Wall with three connected watchtowers. A round trip cable car is included to help you up and down.
Lunch is at a great local restaurant which offers local farmhouse dishes. You have the opportunity to visit the biggest Cloisonné factory and see the items being manufactured by the craftsmen.
We will drive back to visit the Temple of Heaven afterwards. The Temple of Heaven is the most holy of Beijing's imperial temples where the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties came every winter solstice to worship Heaven and to solemnly pray for a good harvest.
We will transfer you back to the hotel after this one day tour.
