Mutianyu Great Wall Changes

Mutianyu, a favorite Great Wall site among visiting dignitaries and tourists, has undergone some drastic remodeling and reconfiguration.  Buses now transport visitors within a short walk of the gondola that takes visitors to the Great Wall. All the shops that once lined the narrow street, forming a gauntlet of market hagglers has now been relocated and dispersed down the mountainside to a spacious shop area at the point of entry.  All this change occurred within one year’s time!

The weather was extraordinary with no haze and clear visibility as the photos attest.
