US First Lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters visited a section of the Great Wall in the northern Beijing suburbs on Sunday afternoon.
Obama and daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were given time alone to walk on the wall.
Obama is on the third day of a weeklong visit to the country aimed at promoting educational exchanges between the US and China.
Earlier, Obama hosted a discussion on education with a handful of Chinese professors, students and parents at an event at the US Embassy in Beijing.
