Great Crowds

Since Badaling is one of the closest Great Wall sites to Beijing, it is very popular with tourists. On weekends in particular, the number of people can be stifling.

At some narrow points along the wall, bottlenecks occur and you have to literally push your way through the crowd. Since the steps can be irregular and steep, it takes some attention to work the crowds safely.
