We took the wall walk that had a very steep incline. Hard work. We are in our 70's and were able to move along. Gravity surely pulls on you as you try to move up. This portion had fewer people than the lower flatter walks.

A must see when in Beijing!! Not an easy climb but the views are worth it. Make sure to take a bottle of water.

Loved this place. Great Wall is a marvel and everyone should once go to this wonder of the world. We took the cable car to reach this section of the wall.

The visit to Badaling was OK when compared to my trip to Mutianyu, which was almost perfect. I guessed if you have not been to Mutianyu or Jinshanling, Badaling can be all right and worth your time.

There are a few places if you drive to commence your walk of the wall but the Tourist buses all go to Badaling. You start at Tower 10 and begin the steep climb up many stairs then down again and back up all the way...More

The attraction speaks for itself really, and it is super easy to get to with the train -- but precisely because of this ease of transport, you do have to deal with the crowds. And on the weekend, it can get a bit much, and...More

According to Mao Zedong's quote "Whoever has not climbed the Great Wall is not a real man", the Chinese Wall is probably a must during a visit to China. Very worth seeing but don't forget your winter jacket in November! For those who don't like...More

Badaling is definitely the busest of all sections of the Wall. If you do not mind crowds and prefer a section that is easier to traverse then choose Badaling.
