It is approximately 50 kilometers from the city center. The cavalries went through this section in the 13th century. This section is well-known a circle wall with a total length of 4 kilometers, consisting of two parts: east mountain wall and west mountain wall. Normally, the tourists are encouraged to climb up the west part of wall, because west part is higher, if you can make it to top and you will have a bird view of the mountains.

Editor's Note:   Juyongguan Great Wall is the closest part, about 40 minutes driving from the city.  The Wall at Juyongguan is as good as Badaling, if the traffic to Badaling Great Wall is busy, or the time is limited as you have to return to the cruise ship port before 6pm, we suggest you choose Jugongguan Great Wall rather than Badaling Great Wall.    ----China Travel Shanghai (Please e-mail to tansy@chinatravelshanghai for more info)
