Simatai Great Wall, Beijing

4.6
#3 of 61 in Nature in Beijing
See a section of China's most famous structure at Simatai Great Wall. Originally constructed in the 6th century, this section of the World Heritage-listed wall underwent reconstruction during the 14th century; today, it measures 5.4 km (3.3 mi) long, separated into eastern and western sections by a lake and water town. Climb the many beacon towers for extensive views of the vast landscape on either side of the wall. Designed to keep invaders out, this section is much more accessible these days, with a cable car making exploration of the wall particularly easy.

  • The might seem is very good. This is a very fun place to go. The staff were very friendly and trail to help. If you can rent a car, the Great Wall is recommended here.

  • I guess if you are young and fit to be able to say you climbed to the 12 tower of the Great Wall is a really great achievement. It is impressive but there is a lot more to China than the Great Wall.  more »
