With an average height of of 535 meters, Mutianyu Great Wall is 2,250 meters long. Originally built in the Northern Qi Dynasty and repaired during the Ming Dynasty, the Mutianyu section is one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall. Its construction is the largest in terms of scale and the best quality among all sections of Great Wall. In 1987, it was listed as one of the “16 Most Beautiful Tourists Sites of New Beijing”. In 1992, it was ranked as one of the “World’s Best of Beijing Tour”, and listed as Unesco World Heritage Site by United Nations. The Mutianyu section is accessible by cable car. The distinct style of the Mutianyu Great Wall is due to the heavy (96%) forest cover and perilous passes that surround it, and thus it has closely packed watchtowers. The major watchtowers are connected by one general gateway, which is quite rare in the whole Great Wall.
