About:Mutianyu Great Wall

I have noticed that the Simatai section is close to public.
I would have liked to do that hike, from Jinshanling to Simatai, so now, I would like to know if it is possible to hike from Jiankou (Zengbei Tower) to Mutianyu, getting down by the sliding way. If I am not wrong, that would be about 10 kms.
How long would it be? Is possible to do that hike? How can we go to the starting point?
Waiting for your answer, thank you very much.

Yes, it is a good idea to hike from jiankou to Mutianyu. You can fo it. You are right. It is about 10km. Possible for hiking. In fact, it is a very popular hiking routes favored by backpackers. You should take Bus 916 at Dongzhumen Long-distance Bus Station to Huairou first. Then change the bus to Jiankou (西栅子村口, this is the village name). Depart early in the morning and get to Jiankou to start the hiking at 10am. You may arriving in Mutianyu at 5pm or 6pm. If you will get back to downtown Beijing, you should hire a van or share with others. 916 bus is not available at 7pm. Time here is just for reference. It is up to your hiking speed and other arrangement. Enjoy the scene.
