  • If anyone has any doubts about whether the Mutianyu or Babaling it I would like to dispel these concerns. Both are restored, clean. But Badaling is undoubtedly more, has wider aisles and handrails that are not in the Mutianyu.

Getting a little longer and more of the wall to the bypass and see.
