Si Ma Tai Great Wall is known for its steepness, ruggedness and outstanding beauty. Si MaTai Great Wall connects with JinShanLing Great Wall to the west.

That's my favorite part of Great Wall located in Beijing. Perfect site for a weekend hiking tour.

Shoukoubao Greatwall ruins, located Shanxi Province.

守口堡  明長城大同鎮關口堡。位於山西省陽高縣境內。據史載,為明嘉靖二十五年(1546)年設,隆慶六年(1572)磚包,城周“一里二百二十步,高三丈五尺。”只城東有一門,明時在此駐守備,分守長城“十三里,邊墩二十三座,火路墩四座”。明隆慶年間俺答汗部由此入犯,曾使大同全鎮告急。今城堡已毀。長城由守口堡至鎮宏堡,人為破壞較少,地勢稍有起伏。
