The last train departs at 21:18 from Yanqing. I am afraid that one day is too limited. You are advsied to spare at least two days for that.

When are the last trains back? Can I do badaling and the gorge in one day and gey back to Beijing ?

You can take S2 train from Badaling Station to Yanqing Station (about 15 minutes). Then, take bus line Y15 or Y40 to the gorge. :)

i went there may 2013..the place is a must to visit !the s2 train from beijing north which is accessible by subway trains is fast and easy to use.cost 6 rmb by using subway card.the final destination is yanqing county.from there many taxis available taking you directly to lonqing gorge..cost 30 to 50 rmb..try to print out a map or chinese translation of lonqing gorge in chinese so the taxi can understand you..travel time from s2 train and taxi is 2 hrs..i went back at 5 pm from forbidden city..dont worry the s2 train still have a 7 pm departure ..and you're not gonna stay there that long..3 to 4 hrs of adventure there is ok already.when you arrive beijing,if you intend to use the subway ,get a subway card put 60 rmb if you intend to going to longqing gorge..or always using the subway..the subway is easy to use,english translation all th way..dont worry!..hope that helps

to all who want to go to lonqing gorge..i went there may 17,2013..it's awesome!i recommend that you just take the s2 train at beijing north station which is accessible by using the subway train..follow the direction(all have english,very easy to find so no worry)only 6 rmb by using subway card..the final destination is yanqing county..when you arrive you just taxi 30 to 50 rmb right in front of the lonqing gorge..however ,translate the lonqing gorge to chinese so the taxi can understand you..many taxi in front of the train station dont worry.the travel time is 2 hrs from the train and taxi..

Sandy :4/22/2013 8:00:01 PM

yes, it is possible to go there at that time.
from the Forbidden City area, you can walk to Tian'anmen West to take a bus No.5 to Deshengmen, and then take a bus No. 919 to Yanqing County, and connect a bus No. 875 to Longqing gorge.
