Great Wall Badaling

The Great Wall of China was commenced in the 5th century and thereafter rebuilt and extended to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire against intrusions by various nomadic groups and later the Mongol empire. The wall stretches for thousands of kilometres. The Badaling section is the most popular section for tourists and the nearest to Beijing. The wall features impressive towers and spectacular mountain views. The visitor can easily imagine the impressive defensive capacity of the fortifications. For tourists there are stairs and ski lift to get onto and off the wall.
