Located at the northern exit of the ancient road, the Badaling Great Wall used to be called one of the nine forts in the world. And this section is the most well-preserved and the most representative section of all, which is quite rugged and occupies a commanding position. After many renovations, the available section covers 3,741 meters.
After lunch, you will walk along the Sacred Way, an attractive tree-lined walk leading to the Ming Tombs. It has 12 pairs of life-sized animal and human statues, one each side of the pathway.
