Although it was a bit crowded, if you venture to the left, although it is steep, there is a hand rail most of the way, and less crowds to deal with.

This is perhaps one of the easiest access to the Great Wall. As expected, full of people, but still very enjoyable. Taking a cable car was a cheat. I bet, each season presents a new face of this heritage site.

A typical paid tour service in a foreign country. Spend very little time at the main event - Great Wall, 1.5 hours, spend 45 minutes at Ming tomb. Spend 3 hours driving, then the rest of the time being shown and pressed to buy something...More

There are no actual signs on the wall, at least I could not find it. The map is there in between and close to Badaling Wall entry point.

Planning to visit great wall with my wife and 2 & half year old son. How can we reach to Badaling great wall and come back from city using public transport? How much time it will take to go and the cost? I think cable car up and down is ok? Can I take toboggan ride with my kid for coming down? Thanks in advance for suggestion.
