Beijing is not only the political center of China, but it is also the most strategic city in the north. Many dynasties in Chinese history actively built walls in this area. Among many historical ruins of the Great Wall in Beijing, the wall built during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) is the most often seen and best preserved, running over 373 miles and containing about 827 city wall platforms, 71 passes and countless towers. The famous sections include the Badaling, Juyongguan, Huanghuacheng, Mutianyu, Jiankou, Gubeikou, Jinshanling and Simatai.

If you want to experience the culture and enjoy the beauty of the Great Wall, meandering along the bricks of the Badaling is your first choice. It is famous for its deep-rooted culture, magnificent sights and complete military facilities - the essence of the Great Wall. You may find many pictures of it in magazines and guide books and printed on stamps. Being the must-see section of the Great Wall, it is sometimes flocked with visitors especially during holidays.

You may want to avoid the peak seasons or visit the Mutianyu instead. It is even more beautiful and has fewer tourists. If you are nostalgic for old times, the Simatai and Gubeikou sections should be on your itinerary. These two sections are well maintained in their original states. The strong, primitive walls enhance the beauty of the wilderness.

If you are energetic and daring, adventures on the Jinshanling, Huanghuacheng and Jiankou sections await you. The steep peaks and broken bricks will challenge your courage and curiosity. Remember to bring complete a mountaineering outfit, food and water. Water is unavailable on the wild sections.

Different sections of Beijing's Great Wall can satisfy many different interests. Come and explore your favorite one!

1. Badaling Great Wall

Badaling section of the Great Wall is within Yanqing County, one of the two counties in Beijing. The wall is about 80 kilometers northwest from downtown Beijing. Dadaling Grat Wall is actually a mountain pass of the Jundu Mountain. It is recorded that the Badaling Great Wall was built to protect the Juyongguan Pass ( Juyongguan section of the Great Wall ) on its south, further protecting the city of Beijing. Badaling is an ancient military defense project. It is about 1,000 meters above sea level.

The Badaling section of Great Wall is about 3, 740 meters long and averagely 8 meters high. The highest section is 15 meters high. The wall is wide enough for five horses to ride abreast. Badaling was the earliest part open to the visitors among all the sections of the Great Wall in Beijing.

The wall is narrow on the top and broad on the base making the wall stands firmly rising and falling ridges. The wall was made with huge stones. Inside the Wall are made of mud and stone block. This makes the wall clean, prettyl, and firm.

Practical Tips:
a. The Bus No. 877 (non-stop) arrives near the pulley station and Bear Garden at the front hill of Badaling. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the station to the ticket office.
b. The Bus 919 and 880 stop near the cable car station at the rear mountain. It takes about ten minutes to walk to the ticket office from the station.
c. It is walkable betwee the entrances at the front and rear hills, for about half an hour.
d. Around Deshengmen Gate area, many bus owners offer to take visitors to Badaling. Some private bus owners even claim that their buses are No. 919, 880 or 877 by putting a '919', '880' or '877' sign on the window. Please ignore them without hesitation because these private buses will certainly charge more, take more time and are less safe than the official buses (buses mentioned above). We suggest visitors taking the official Bus No. 877, 919 and 880 to Badaling Great Wall, for it is safe, fast and reasonably priced. Those bus are parking just next to the Deshengmen Arrow Tower and the price only costs RMB12 (RMB4.8 by Transportation Smart Card).
e. If it is the official buses, usually there are many people in a long line (or two long lines) waiting for the next bus; no one is trying to convince you to get on the bus, compared to the private bus owners who would mince words to persuade you to get on the bus; the official buses is in green-and-white and is always equipped with a card reader, passengers can either pay by cash or transportation card.

It has become popular with hikers in recent years. This section of the great wall is about 1000 meters long and connecting Juyongguan Pass Great Wall and Badaling Great Wall in the west and Jiankou Great Wall and Mutianuyu Great Wall in the east. Now it is a quite challenge to climb the wall since it has no stone steps or no smooth path found at other sections of Great Wall in Beijing.

Huanghuacheng was an area littered with many villages in Yuan Dynasty. Later in Ming Dynasty it turned into a rich and prosperous area due to the construction of the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng as strategically important Benzhenguan Pass.

There is a story behind the building of Huanghuacheng Great Wall. Its construction began in 1575, during the Ming Dynasty and General Cai Kai was in charge of the entire works. It was said that it took many years to finish the the construction. When General Cai Kai went to the capital and reported to the emperor his successful task, he was put to death at once! Some jealous ministers had told Emperor Wanli at that time that the General Cai Kai had spent too much money and the construction of the wall was poor. The emperor was so unhappy with these false reports, he ordered Cai’s immediate execution. Later the emperor sent a trusted aid to check Cai's Wall. The aid went back and reported to the the emperor that Huanghuaheng Great Wall was solid with the finest workmanship. Sorry for his hasty in putting the death to Cai, Wanli sent people to build a tomb and memorial stele in memory of the loyal general.

The Emperor Wanli also wrote the two characters “Jin Tang”, meaning "solid and firm", carved on the face of a huge rock below the wall, showing the wall was firm and solid. So the wall is sometimes called Jintang Great Wall.

There is a lake and a reservoir near the wall. The reservoir is called Huanghuacheng Reservoir. The lake is called Jintang lake. The water of the lake is cold and clear for all year round due to the numerous springs. Parts of Huanghuacheng Great Wall were damaged and fell into Jintang Lake after being bombed during the Anti-Japanese war China a century ago. The whole section of wall has 6 forts, 6 passes, 12 beacon-towers, and 32 guard towers. Of all the forts, Yaoziyu Fort is the best preserved.

"The Eagle Flies Facing Upward(鹰飞倒昂)": it is actually an enemy observation tower. It is such named due to the fact that the observation tower is built on the highest place of the mountain. So, if an eagle wants to fly to the tower, it has to fly facing upwards before it gets to the top of the tower.
"Ladders in the sky(天梯)": At this part of the Wall the ladders go actually straight up, and they are so narrow that it is almost impossible to hold a foothold.
"Beijing Knot(北京结)": the meeting place for three different linking sections of the Great Wall at Jiankou.
"The Nine-Eye Tower(鹰眼)": A watchtower with 9 holes resembling 9 eyes.
