As a landmark erected at the top of a group of mountain ranges, Badaling has also witnessed many significant events in history. The first emperor of the Qin Dynasty toured there, Yuan Taizu, the first emperor of Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) passed the wall and took control over the whole of China. Badaling Great Wall is situated in Yanqing County, over 43 miles (70 kilometres) north of Beijing. It is the most well-preserved section of the Great Wall, with a history dating back to 1505 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Streching about 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) with 43 watch towers, this section with an average altitude of over 1,000 meters (3,282 feet) was once the outpost of the Juyongguan Pass. The wall is tortuous like a strong dragon winding along the steep mountain ranges. The strategic geographical features make it an age-old military stronghold. Now the section opened to tourists is about 4,091 yards (3,741 meters) in length, with 16 watch towers restored. The wall was open to public in 1995 after repairs. Besides climbing the wall, you can also visit the Genghis Khan Palace, the Stone Buddha Temple, Luotuo Peak (Camel Peak) and the Great Wall Stele Forest nearby. Located near the Badaling, the Water Pass is sometimes called the 'Badaling-Shuiguan Great Wall.' It often happens that innocent visitors are guided here instead of their original destination - the Badaling Great Wall, especially during holidays or peak periods. ...
