Badaling Great Wall

Badaling Great Wall is located at the northern entrance of the Guangou Ancient Path of Jundu Hill in Yanqing County, Beijing, and recognized as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.

Badaling Great Wall is the finest and most magnificent section of the Great Wall. As a barrier defending Beijing, it boasts peaks rising one above the other and precipitous terrain. The majestic wall curls from south to north, extending along the steep hills. Today, a multi-layered touring system with the open section of the Great Wall, the Chinese Great Wall Museum and Badaling Great Wall Circle Cinema as the main body, three free landscape gardens as supportive parts, and the broken Great Wall and Chadao Ancient City as two inter-complementary affiliated scenic spots has formed at Badaling.

The Badaling Great Wall is well known at home and abroad, enjoying tremendous international popularity as the first section of the Great Wall opened to tourists. So far, a total of 372 foreign leaders, including Nixon, Regan, Thatcher, Gorbachev and Queen Elizabeth, and numerous global celebrities have visited the Badaling Great Wall.
