Mutianyu’s original construction is completed in the 5th century and then rebuilt 8 centuries later, when the original wall’s foundations have been laid. The Mutianyu pass has been a strategic place for many battles and three watch towers have been built on it in 13th century. The Mutianyu Section is the most recently restored part of the wall, which has been opened to tourists in 1986. The magnificent scenery that opens before the visitors makes this place favorite for millions of tourists, who prefer to spend here their Beijing Layover Tour.
