NileGuide Expert Says:
This is the most impressive section of the wall in terms of height and architecture, and is by far the easiest section to climb. However, Badaling is the busiest of all the areas of the Great Wall and is extremely crowded during Chinese holidays and in peak summer season. Get to Badaling early if you want to get good pictures without the hassle of the crowds.
NileGuide Expert tip:
- Unspoilt and far from the maddening crowds, this wild section of China's greatest architectural feat curves in delightfully dilapidated fashion across a range of hills and valleys. A small restaurant serves Grilled Rainbow Trout fresh from the lake, and you can dine under the shadow of the Wall. Warning - this path is steep and in dire need of repair. Take good walking shoes, and do not climb if you doubt your ability or fitness. From Huai Rou city negotiate with a mini-van driver to take you to the Wall.
