Cableway at Badaling Section of the Great Wall

China began to build a cableway at the Badaling Section of the Great Wall in 1988. The project is a cooperation between Beijing Badaling Cable car Ltd. and the Hong Kong Jinhui International Indus-trial Company. The Hong Kong side invested $ 4,950,000 and bore all the costs of the project. The Beijing Badaling Cablear Ltd. Provides the use of the land, about 10,000 square metres, worth $ 500,000.

The main reason for building the cableway is to transport visitors to the Wall. In the last couple of years, the number of visitors to the. Wall was more than 4.5 million each year. In 1988, the visitors to the Wall reached 5 million. At present, there is only a small doorway through which only a bus can pass. Almost 33,000 tourists and 800cars and buses pass through it daily during the peak season.

The cableway project consists of two parts: a 725-metre northern line with an underground station at the top and a semi-underground station at the bottom. The whole cableway is hidden in a valley. A 625-metre southern line was completed above ground and also in a valley. The tourist on the Wall cannot see the cable lines. The equipment is from POMA, a French company. The cableway was completed in 1990, it can transport about one-third of the visitors to the further watchtowers. So elderly people and both Chinese and foreign tourists can also get to the top of the Great Wall to enjoy the wonderful scenery.
