Guangwu - ruins of the Greatwall -3

廣武城兩側的山上蜿蜒著只剩夯土的長城,長城上的包磚哪兒去了?據當地老鄉介紹,是陸續被當地人拆下來蓋房、壘豬圈了,尤其是上世紀70年代國家大修防空洞,附近各村都有任務。當時有一條公路直達山頂,社員們開著大汽車上山去拉長城的磚修'地下長城'。

Yangbian Greatwall 样边长城 -2

真正的樣邊長城總長約3KM,之所以叫樣邊長城,據說明代修築長城時把這段長城作為樣板,把各地負責修築長城的人請來參觀,所以說這段長城是明​​長城修建時的試點和样板工程。不過其果然名副其實,最後那段3KM的樣榜工程修得非常堅固和漂亮,明顯與其他地方的不同。

National leaders Visit the Great Wall
http://www.beijing-travels.com/great...l_leaders.html

They were the all-powerful leaders or presidents of countries, they were willing to challenge the Chinese old word "He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man". During a trade mission in Beijing China, many leaders visited the Great Wall en masse and gave highly praise and respect, Obama, Cameron, Clinton, Bush, Yeltsin, Nixon, Reagan, Rabin...

Laolongtou ( Old Dragon Head)

Four kilometers south of Shanhaiguan, Laolongtou is the easternmost end of the Great Wall, which stretches 23 meters into the sea like a dragon drinking water, hence its name.

Laolongtou ( Old Dragon Head)

During the Opium War (1840), British and French’s warships were active in the Laolongtou area. The Qing government assembled large forces in Laolongtou for provide defense from attack from the sea, but their efforts proved to be in vain because later in 1900 the Eight-Nation Alliance invaded and destroyed all important defensive buildings and Shenghailou, the most beautiful pavilion of Laolongtou. They drove out the locals and stationed their army in Laolongtou area. It wasn’t until World War Two that they left this area.

Toured the Wall at Mutianyu. When I was much younger, one dream of mine was to see the Great Wall. I wanted to walk... experience it before I punched my ticket. Now that I've been to the Wall, I want to see it again. More importantly, I will go to China again.

For those of you who have not been to Zhongguo, well... you should go. It is an amazing nation. I have never been treated better (I've lived in Europe, traveled to the Middle East). Simply eye opening.

Apologize for high-jacking the thread. Have you ever done something you thought would be great and it turned out to be exponentially better than that? That's China.

It is named after Jiaoshan Mountain, which is the highest peak to the north of Shanhaiguan Pass and also the first mountain the Great Wall climbs up after Shanhaiguan Pass.

盘龙山长城

Panlongshan Great Wall
http://www.greatwallforum.com/forum/...ll-review.html

Panlongshan is a great place to hike the Great Wall. The climbing is challenging in places but the level of danger is reasonable for the Great Wall. The architecture is interesting, the defense security features are unique, and scenery is excellent.









Panlongshan located Gubeikou town in northeastern Beijing.
