Badaling Great Wall

 

Badaling Great Wall is the most famous section of Great Wall in Beijing which built more than 600 years ago during the Ming Dynasty, along with a military outpost reflecting the location's strategic importance.

Badaling Great Wall is some 80km away to downtown Beijing by superhighway and it is the closest section of theGreat Wall to Beijing which can be visited in a half day.Badadling Great Wall was completely restored after 1957.

Empress Cixi fled from there to the western part of China in 1900 when an alliance of eight western countries invaded Beijing. At present, it stands still there recording the hardship and bitterness that Chinese people have endured in the past 2,000 years. It is a priceless cultural heritage of humanity.

President Richard Nixon and his wife, accompanied by Vice Premier Li Xiannian, visited the Badaling Great Wall during his historic journey to China on February 24, 1972. Nowaday, Badaling Great Wall visited annually by millions, the immediate area has seen significant development, including hotels, restaurants, and a cable car.
