We will arrange you a visit to the well-preserved Badaling Great Wall this morning. Climbing the wall can be quite energy-consuming as it was built along rolling mountain ranges with a lot of stairs, so it is suggested you have a big breakfast and prepare some snacks to replenish yourself during the journey.

After visiting the Great Wall, our guide will accompany you to see the Sacred Way - a 7-kilometer (4-mile) long path with vivid stone statues of animals and officials on both sides, and the Ming Tomb - the mausoleum of the 13th emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) and his two empresses.
