Badaling, Beijing

Badaling is where the most visited section of the Great Wall of China lies, being just a 1.5 hour drive from Beijing.

Badaling is where the most visited section of the Great Wall of China lies, being just a 1.5 hour drive from Beijing. It is the best preserved section of the Great Wall, and dates back to 1504 AD during the reign of Ming Dynasty Emperor Hong Zhi.

Built as a strategic commanding outpost of the Juyongguan Pass, it functioned to protect Beijing against Mongols of the north. Stretching over 5 miles along the steep mountains of Guangou Valley, it has watch towers and beacon towers at regular intervals that were once used for defence. You can climb the granite steps on foot, or take the cable car to the top. Being the most popular section of the Great Wall, you can expect huge crowds here. Visit the China Great Wall Museum and the Great Wall National Theater nearby for an overview of the history of the wall.

A guided tour is a great way to understand the historical and cultural significance of the Great Wall of China. You can combine your visit with a trip to the Ming Tombs and other attractions nearby.
