  1. I will be travelling by train from Huangtudian to Badaling. Which station should I get out from? Badaling station or Yanqing?
    I intend to take the cable car up to Great Wall.
    Thank you
    Harry

  2. Hello! We are travelling from Huangtudian to Badaling on the first train. Is it ok to get the tickets on the same day or is it too risky? How much does it cost?

    Thanks in advance!
