Ancient Badaling Great Wall Tours – China, Beijing
Ancient Badaling Great Wall
About this place
The Ancient Badaling Great Wall is located in Donggou Village, Badaling Town of Yanqing County. It is about 65 kilometers (40 miles) from Beijing. This section of the Great Wall is about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the famous Badaling, and is nearby the western gate of the military defense system on the Badaling Great Wall.
Seen from a distance, the Ancient Badaling Great Wall resembles a dragon winding its way along the mountain peaks. With lofty ridges and towering mountains, the deep trenches and high embarkments all contribute to the strength of this strategically crucial section of the Great Wall. Surviving the vicissitudes of nearly 2,000 years, the walls dominate the scene with an indelible mark made by history. The remnant wall, with its ubiquitous broken body, conveys a peculiar glamour.
This section of the Great Wall is in its original form, and replicates the character of the Ming Dynasty’s Great Wall. The whole section is 2,000 meters long, but only about 100 meters are open to tourists. Two routes are easily accessible to tourists that plan to enjoy the splendid panorama of the Great Wall at their leisure.
Take Bus No. 919, and get off at Xibozi Stop (西拨子站) which is the next stop after Badaling.
