I was hoping I'd find the latitude / longitude of Badaling on wikipedia... ANyone knows them ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:30, 24 December 2006


From a quick look in the dictionary it seems like it might mean "eight distinguished ridges". Can anyone confirm? (and add to the article) ☸ Moilleadóir 06:42, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

A guide there gave a rendition that makes sense: "eight reaches" has the sense of "on all sides" so it means surrounded by mountain ridges or secure on all sides. Colin McLarty (talk) 21:40, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
