Great Wall Bus Tour to Majestic Badaling and Ming Tomb   



Badaling Great Wall


When you see a photo from the Great Wall of China, chances are it is from the section at Badaling. We'll take you to the unrestored portion of this famous section to show you the true Great Wall. The ruined Badaling Great Wall (now officially named “Ancient Badaling Great Wall”) is 10km southwest of the restored Badaling Great Wall. So, as its name hints, this section of the Great Wall is only partially restored and more adventurous, while not being easy to climb. Its hikers are mainly foreign travelers instead of domestic travelers, who prefer hiking at the more relaxing and easier-to-climb restored Badaling Great Wall.


The Ming Tombs


The Ming Tombs, located at about 31 miles outside the city, are where 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty are buried. Construction of the tombs began over 500 years ago by Changling, the second Ming Dyansty Emperor, and we will visit his tomb, along with the Ming Tombs entrance of the Sacred Way. The site was constructed according to the principles of Feng Shui, so there are three large mountains surrounding the complex, with a river flowing by. The Ming Tombs and the Great Wall at Badaling are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

 Great Wall at Unrestored Badaling & Ming Tombs
1- Day
Bus or Coach Tour

Tour code:

1. Between 7:30-8:00 am our English-speaking guide will come to your hotel to pick you up, and we will make the 2 hour drive to the Ming Tombs.

2. We will arrive at the Ming Tombs in the late morning. There are 13 Ming Dynasty emperors buried here (along with 23 empresses and a number of concubines, princes and princesses), thus it is also called The 13 Mausoleums. These tombs are the best preserved Chinese imperial tombs and have been nominated by UNESCO as world cultural heritage. We will visit the Changling Tomb, where the second emperor of the Ming Dynasty is buried. This emperor moved the capital from Nanjing to Beijing, started construction on the Forbidden City, and started building the Ming Tombs site.

3. For lunch we will have a Chinese cuisine at the Jade Art Restaurant, and it will take us about an hour to have our meal.

4. We’ll then make the short drive to reach the Great Wall at Badaling. Looking to climb an adventurous, peaceful, crowd-free part of the Great Wall?  Today you will discover the un-renovated section of Badaling, also called Shixiaguan by local farmers. It remains a secret to most visitors, making it one of the quietest spots to experience this ancient marvel and its seemingly endless beauty. Wild and rugged Badaling is located southwest of the rebuilt but touristy part of Badaling, one of Beijing's best-known and most visited section of Great Wall. Unrestored Badaling, however, offers a more off-the-beaten-track, non-touristy way to experience part of the monumental feat of engineering.

5. On our drive back to Beijing, we will stop for a little bit at a traditional market, where it is not unusual to get some great bargains, even at less than 50% of the original asking price. If you are unsure how to haggle in Chinese, your guide will be more than happy to help you out!

6. You will be dropped off at your hotel at no later than 6:00pm, ending your day’s sightseeing.
