Home » Beijing (北京) » BaDaLing (八達領)

The BaDaLing section of the Great Wall is perhaps the most touristy and deveoped section of the Beijing Walls. I went there with the tour group, not expecting too much and looking forward more to my SiMaTai a couple of days later instead. Still, it was quite awe-inspiring seeing the Wall for the first time. Even in this touristy section - to see the scale and the steepness of the wall first hand was almost a little mind numbing...

The crowded section (north section) of the wall
Traffic central - it was packed sardine here with the traffic coming down to a stand still for long periods of time....
The quiet section (south section) of the wall
This section is quite steep. If it were raining and the rock slippery, I wouldn't have walked this section....
High-tech tower!
End of the south section - the "wild wall" (野城) beyond was curtained off.
