Expect no switchbacks or respite, this stretch of the Great Wall is as challenging as its name suggests. Standing at the boundary between Hebei and Beijing, you will visit the most well-preserved section of the Great Wall and watchtowers built in Ming Dynasty(1368 – 1644). The rugged path might be a little bit heart-thumping but the scene up there will prove the walk worth taking.

Stay away from the more beaten path for an unconventional adventure – this stretch of the Great Wall has never undergone artificial modification. Visitors can take a look on the raw yet magnificent silhouette of ancient Great Wall snaking up and down across hills.

What happened if your only choice is to turn left? The trail will be blanket by apricot blossoms during spring, making the picturesque Badaling a star on the internet. Take a glance on the essence of the Great Wall and set your foot in the scenic spot that has received the most state leaders ever.
