BEIJING, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Officials in Beijing unveiled a four-tiered plan to limit the number of visitors to the Great Wall of China.

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Landscape and Forestry released its General Plan for the Great Wall for public opinion Tuesday on its Web site.

The plan limits the number of visitors to the Badaling Section and the Ming Mausoleums Scenic Area to 53,000 per day, Shanghai Daily reported Wednesday.

The four-tiered plan forbids visitors to unrenovated areas at its strictest level, Level 1, and imposes no restrictions at its most lenient, Level 4.

The plan recommends relocating the general entrance to the main visitor sections and moving parking areas as well.
