Badaling Great Wall
The Badaling Great Wall, located in the northwest suburb of Beijing, is a pass of Jundu Mountain. It extends in all directions and therefore got its name as Badaling.
The Badaling Great Wall is the first part of the Great Wall that was opened to the public and is regarded as the soul of the entire Great Wall. It is a must-visit scenic spot for tourists visiting Beijing.
Due to the strategic importance of Badaling, it was the place where the military fought in the past. The Badaling Great Wall became the martial strongpoint as early as the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) and the Warring States Period (475-221 BC).
