Day tours from Beijing to the Great Wall in Badaling and to Ming tombs
April 18th, 2006
Tour to Great Wall at Badaling, a convenient place to explore the Great Wall, because not too far from Beijing and comfortable enough for just a day trip. The tour continues exploring the Ming Tombs, the Sacred Way, and traditional silk factory near Beijing.
Picture of the Great Wall in Badaling, where the wall is very well preserved, making possible to walk over it for a quite long distance.

After a long hike, I reach the end of the rebuilt part.

The day tour continues with a visit to the Ming tombs. They covers a very huge area.
