About the Business:

Compared with other travel areas of Great Wall, Mutianyu Great Wall Travel Area has prominent peculiarities. Firstly, this travel area is of flourish grasses and dense forests. Its coverage now has accounted to ninety six percent, higher than any other parts of Great Wall. Secondly Mutianyu Gateway Platform is so special and it is quite different to Juyongguan Gateway, Shanghaiguan Gateway and Jiayuguang Gate. The general gateway platform is composed of three hollow enemy towers, which are connected together. The towers on both sides are small and the middle tower is fairly large. On top of three enemy towers are three watch booths and gateway door was not founded in the right middle, but in east side of gateway platform. Entry and exit of gateway platform are also through the doors founded in both sides of enemy tower. Such a special architecture of gateway platform is unusual in the whole Great Wall. Thirdly, enemy towers are closely packed. Four enemy towers were founded from the first Mu-word tower (large angle tower) to the fourth Mu-word tower (general gateway platform), a distance of less than 500 meters.
