What To Expect
The Great Wall at Badaling
Great Wall is the very symbol of ancient Chinese engineering. The Badaling section is a prime, preserved example of this colossal structure. Since Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC - 476 BC) and Warring States Period (476 BC - 221 BC), Badaling became a very important military strategic place Many incomplete parts of the wall were proved to be built in the Warring States Period. Here you will have the opportunity to climb up either the North or South Face of the Wall.

I had a great time on my tour. Cynthia was a great guide answering all of my questions. And if you need a fantastic picture taken of you while on your visit have her do it, she knows all the angles for a great photo of yourself and the sights.
Great sceneries In winter and not many people
Use a cable car and you will fully enjoy! Use a travel agent you can find in sunlitan. Try also skiing
We had a lovely day with our guide Cynthia who was very friendly and gave us lots of interesting facts about the ming tombs, the great Wall of China and Chinese culture.

This was an amazing place I couldn’t walk it all as the steps are huge, my brother did though, it would be a mistake to come to China and not visit this place
