About Badaling Great Wall

The Great Wall of Badaling in Yanqing, Beijing, is a pass for the Ming Great Wall. As the saying goes, "you are not a hero until you reach the Great Wall". Most locals take this spot to be the start of the ascent of the Great Wall. The Badaling Great Wall is the best-preserved and most complete section among the various great walls in Beijing. The total length of this sectionn is 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) with 43 watchtowers, however only 2.3 miles (3.74 kilometers) and 19 watchtowers have been restored and opened to visitors. Compared with other sections, most stairs are not very steep and they are equipped with handrails, so it is a relatively easier climb.

    When I visited Qianmen Street that day, I happened to see the No. 1 Tourist Line, which can go directly to the Great Wall and the Thirteen Tombs. It was very convenient. When exit C of Qianmen Station of Metro Line 2 comes out, there will be a sign telling tourists which direction the special line is going. We first went to the Badaling Great Wall. The fare was 20 yuan. There was no interval between cars. One by one, we started at full capacity. There were a lot of tourists queuing to get on. So it was absolutely no problem to get full. We got on the bus before 8 o'clock that day, and departed at 04 o'clock. After climbing the Great Wall, we went to the Thirteen Tombs or took a special tour line to Changling. The fare was ten yuan. The departure time is eleven, twelve and thirteen. Then, after the completion of the Ming Tombs, they returned to the front door on a special tourist line for a fare of ten yuan. The through train departs at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. in Changling. The departure time in Dingling is about 2:05, 3:05 and 4:05, because it's about 5 minutes from Changling. Very convenient. The through-train fare can only be charged in cash. First get on the bus, then buy the tickets. The Steward will come to sell the tickets on the bus. We went on the ropeway. The ropeway reached the sixth slope and then climbed two slopes to the Haohan slope on the eighth floor of the north. But I didn't know if I had taken the wrong route. I never saw the three words of Haohan slope. I also heard that we could climb 12 slopes. But why did I lose my way on the eighth slope? I thought I had climbed the wrong way. I went down to the ropeway station, took another road and climbed again. I went back to the eighth floor. For a ticket booked online, half-price tickets for the elderly and children can also be booked online, and then go to the ticketing hall (that is, the place where the cableway is lined up, just pick up the tickets directly).

    Not to the Great Wall is not a good man, this does not really regret, I take the subway 10-way subway 8 to the Badaling Great Wall in S2 transfer, take a free pick-up train, arrive at the cable car ticket outlet, but did not listen to the guide's tricks, directly listen to the walk, the route north city from the first floor to the Eleventh floor, while taking pictures while admiring the scenery, it took about 3.5 hours, the North eighth floor is the highest point, but the North eighth floor is the highest point. The eleventh floor is very exciting, high and steep! It's a pity not to come to the end. If I climb the Great Wall for the first time, I'd better climb the whole journey and experience it. When I get back from climbing the Great Wall, I take bus 919 and hitch a 10 yuan ride to the Bird's Nest Water Cube. Then I go back to the Bird's Nest Water Cube.

    Take Tourist Bus Line 1 at Qianmen, 20 yuan to Badaling parking lot. The key is the whole high speed, which should avoid traffic jams in Beijing. Tourist guides will introduce that the road will pass through Juyongguan Great Wall and Shuiguan Great Wall. We buy a cable car with tickets. Adults will pay 175 yuan. It only takes three minutes to reach the seventh floor of the north. The upper floor will reach the eighth floor of the north, which is very labor-saving, and the price is also appropriate. Listen to the driver and take their car, 10 yuan can go to 13 mausoleums to play, if the time is well arranged, one day is no problem. The return journey is the same as the departure journey.

    Who doesn't know about the China Wall (Great Wall of China)? It is one of the most populous countries in the world. It is one of the seven wonders of the world. This magnificent and longest wall in the world is about 20 km in length and 5.6 to 6.2 m in height, or about 3 to 5 feet in height. It is about 1.5 meters or 12 feet wide. There are said to be 12 pairs of horses together on the wall of China.####Visit mutianyu great wall: - From the dongzhimen station on the Beijing subway 2/13 / airport express line, you can find a dongzhimen transportation hub at the bus stop! and get to bus number 916

    Visiting China without visiting the Great Wall (either in Badaling or Mutianyu) is not visiting China at all. Whether you’re having a layover in Beijing and have a time to squeeze in, never missed out The Great Wall. As a foreigner/tourist, you’ll take pride and respect for history and the people who were part of that history.

    Take Line 2 and get off at Jishuitan, then go behind Gulou Street. Don't believe the black car on the way. Keep in mind. Then the bus No. 877 goes directly to the Badaling Great Wall. It is suggested to have a one-card card, because the card is six yuan and the ticket is twelve. The card can be returned. Go early, or the queue will last for a long time. To the Great Wall, it is suggested to start climbing from Nancheng, because there are ropeways and pulleys in Nancheng, and the north city is not built yet. It is very convenient to climb on a pulley if you don't want to walk down. Try to come back before 4:00 p.m. and maybe there will be no car after that. Go to the meeting early. It's very windy and the air is very good. Sometimes there are planes flying over the blue sky and white clouds. It's very good. There is also a ticket to get a good man certificate is a pit dad, where will take a photo, ask you if you want a large twenty dollars, do not give you a small, small money, certificate will ask you for five dollars, do not give certificates. Anyway, there's nothing free. In the end, you still need money.

    The day I put my foot on Great Wall of China my heart skipped beat. Because it was my dream to visit the wall when I was in China. It was a lovely and exciting moment. My boyfriend made my day super cool. I hugged him and say, "My love we made it" he smiled happily. Such a wonderful memory to treasure forever ❤️❤️❤️

    The Badaling Great Wall is the essence of the Great Wall. It is unique in the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty. This section of the Great Wall is a precipitous terrain, high-rise, is an important military pass in the Ming Dynasty and an important barrier to the capital of Beijing. Generally, tourists who come to Beijing will visit it. The Great Wall of Badaling is far from Beijing. It takes more than two hours to drive. If it is not self-driving, it is generally recommended to play with the group. This time, we also signed up for a tour group. Tickets for Badaling Great Wall are 40 in peak season, 35 in off season and half for children and the elderly. Because of the tight time with the group and the fact that climbing the Great Wall really takes a lot of physical energy, unless the physical strength is particularly good, tourists usually choose to ride on the ropeway. Cableway price one way: 60 yuan, round trip: 80 yuan, and children do not enjoy preferential treatment. Because our family took the entrance, we chose to take the cableway. Badaling Great Wall is famous for its magnificent landscape, perfect facilities and profound cultural and historical connotations. It is a world-famous tourist attraction. Therefore, there are many tourists. When they get off the cable car, they can see that the Great Wall is full of tourists, which can not be overstated by shoulder to shoulder. As far as we can see, beacon towers are built along winding peaks. Tourists are shocked by the magnificent view of the Great Wall. Some of the roads on the Great Wall are very inclined, and there are no steps. It is suggested that tourists should wear light shoes. Because of wearing a pair of sloping heels, I feel that it is difficult to walk a little behind. Badaling Great Wall has 43 enemy towers, similar in shape and different features. According to the guide, tourists can climb to the North eighth floor before gathering, and people with good physical strength can challenge them further. This time, the two children were very angry. They climbed up to the tenth floor together. Looking at the pictures they took back, there were few visitors upstream of the tenth floor. Only here can we see the shape of the Great Wall better.
