Badaling Great Wall

Our Badaling Great Wall Tour starts with breakfast. Then, after our tour guide picks you up at the hotel in downtown Beijing, we will drive northwest to the Badaling Great Wall for about one hour and forty minutes (70KM). This section of the Great Wall was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It is made of huge and neat stones, with an average height of about 8 meters and a width of about 6 meters. It is estimated that 16 million bricks and stones are used to build up the Badaling Great Wall. According to research, two archaeological sites have been found in the Badaling ancient Great Wall. The first site is the quarry that produced the stones for the construction of the Great Wall. The second one is the group of brick kilns that were used to fire bricks. Now, it’s time for us to visit Badaling Great Wall. First, we will climb up from the south side of Badaling Great Wall. At the entrance here, you can see a cannon, with a length of 2.85 meters and a maximum range of more than 500 meters. The cannon is the prove of the relatively developed military industry at that time. Then, we will continue to the Hero’s Slop where you can take group photos. This slop is named because there is a Chinese saying that he who does not reach the Great Wall is not a true hero. Next, we will arrive at the North Eighth Tower, which is a great place to appreciate the scenery of the Badaling Great Wall. Overlooking from a high altitude, you will find that the majestic Great Wall is like a giant dragon winding among the mountains. Only by standing here in person can you truly understand how amazing this symbol of the Chinese nation is. If you still have physical strength after climbing to the North Eighth Tower, you can visit the China Great Wall Museum on the west side. This museum was completed and opened in September 1994, with a construction area of more than 4,000 square meters. Under the theme of the Great Wall of China, it comprehensively reflects the architecture, history, culture, art, and present situation of the Great Wall. Here, you can learn the basic context of the emergence and development of the Great Wall as well as the military defense function and system of the Great Wall.

After the visit, we will drive back to the hotel in downtown Beijing. See you next time!
