The ski lift was slightly questionable in terms of safety but we absolutely loved the experience! We loved the slide so much we briefly considered riding it again but then realized we would have to do the ski lift again!

The wall is about 70 km from Beijing.
You can reach by taxi with a bus to the point of collecting hikers.
You have to buy a bus ticket that goes back and forth.
Tickets must be bought back and forth to the cable car.
You can go down the track with Scooter and have a pleasant experience.
There is a long wait waiting about an hour for the cable car.
On the wall walk 1.5 km with very high stairs.
People who have difficulty will not be able to climb much.
Take plenty of drinking water.
The time to travel on the wall, including the trip from Beijing and back for 8 hours

Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall of China located in Huairou District. We went there early in the morning, less crowded and got nice view from cable car. You can also choose to come down by toboggan slide.

This part of great wall was not far from Beijing city. Not hard walk and not many tourists as Badaling section.
There are souvenir shops,restaurants and even Bargerking.

Traveled to Mutianyu from central Beijing (Wangfujing) by cab. We got it on tripadvisor and it cost us $85 per head (drop and pick up only, no guide). We saw the same thing being offered in the city for $100 for a car. The guy who drove us helped us get tickets at the counter as well. We preferred this type of service to the guided tour because we could make our own schedule and didn't stop at any tourist trap that group tours go to. We started at 7 AM to beat the tourist rush at the wall and got there in a little over an hour. It's very doable for a half-day trip with a return to central Beijing at around 2 PM. When we got to the wall, we climbed up the steps which took us a quite a while - I didn't note how long it took but there were probably around a 1000 steps - much more than I expected! There is a cable car you can take up instead which I would recommend if you cannot or do not want to make the climb. Note that there are two cable cars run by different companies so it is not possible to ride up with one and down with another on a round trip ticket (you will need to go back to the same part of the wall to come back if you have a round trip ticket). There is a toboggan down which we took which was really fun (tickets on top cost RMB 100 but at the base cost only RMB 60). Hiking around on top is fun and takes about 2-3 hours but you could go really farther off if you wanted.
