The Badaling Great Wall is located in the northwest of Beijing, and it's a pass of Jundu Mountain. It extends in all directions, therefore termed Badaling.

The Badaling Great Wall is located on the ridge of the northern part of the GuanGou. Here, two peaks come face to face, and there is an alley between the two, strategically placed. Due to the importance of the Badaling, it became the place where military fought. The Badaling became the martial strongpoint from the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. The Badaling Great Wall was rebuilt in the Ming Dynasty. The Ming Great Wall is no longer a simple high wall, but a rigorous recovery system. Ningxia, Shanxi, Shangxi, Heibei are all in the Great Wall's path. Many Guan cities and short walls were built in this important place. Since the Qing Dynasty, the Badaling Great Wall has become more deserted. The city towers to the west of Guan city had severely been destroyed. After the State Department decided to repair it, the Great Wall had been rehabilitated several times.

The Badaling Great Wall resounds in the entire world, and it is the first part of the Great Wall that was open to the public. The Badaling Great Wall is the soul of the entire Great Wall, welcoming tourists from all over the world. It is said that whoever gets to the Great Wall will be acclaimed as the peak of perfection!
