GREAT WALL OF CHINA AT SIMATAI
Great Wall of China at Simatai
Built during the Qi and Ming Dynasties, the Great Wall of China at Simatai has two sections that are divided by a lovely valley. The western section has a gentle slope and 20 well-maintained watchtowers. The eastern section with its 17 watchtowers is steeper because it is built along a rough terrain. It includes high mountain cliffs and is a more picturesque section and a popular hiking spot. You can also ascend the Simatai Wall using cable cars that give you a panoramic view of the Wall, the Mandarin Duck Lake, and the Gubei Water Town in the valley.
