In the morning transfer to visit Great Wall – Badaling Section, not including cable car The Great Wall of China is the longest man-made structure in the world. In fact, the length of all Chinese defense walls built over the last 2000 years is approximately 50,000 kilometres, while the Earth’s circumference is only 40,000 kilometres! Badaling was the first section of the Wall to be open to tourists in 1957. It is the best-preserved section of the Wall, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and has an average altitude of over 1000 meters (3282 feet). Once a military stronghold, its steep slopes and winding nature made it very difficult for enemy armies to cross. Enjoy lunch at a local Chinese restaurant, includes one soft drink or non-alcoholic beverage. Afterwards take a visit of Changling & Sacred Way The Ming Tombs are a collection of imperial mausoleums built by the Chinese Ming dynasty emperors. After the Yongle Emperor finished the Forbidden City in 1420, he began constructing his own mausoleum outside of Beijing. Subsequent emperors placed their tombs in the same valley, resulting in the fascinating sight we can see there today. Visit the highlights of the area, including the Sacred Way, the imperial road leading to the tombs, which is lined with massive stone statues that lend a divine atmosphere to the whole experience.
