With a history of more than 2000 years, some of the sections are now in ruins or have disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance.

Simatai Greatwall -2

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.

Jiankou Great Wall 箭扣長城

Jiankou is a section of the Great Wall of China. This section is a photographic hotspot due to its unique style, steep mountains and beautiful scenery. 'Jiankou', is translated as 'Arrow Nock' in English, for the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.

Shoukoubao Greatwall ruins, located Shanxi Province.
http://www.lvwo.com/bbs/viewthread.p...e%3D1#pid86851


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。
