The Great Wall of Gubeikou, Beijing

4.6
Snaking along ridges and across hills, The Great Wall of Gubeikou preserves the ancient architectural beauty of a part of the Great Wall that has never undergone reconstruction. The structures' rather dilapidated state actually lets you get a close-up view of the way they were made. Enjoy views of huge green hilly expanses while hiking along its shrub-dotted pavements. Stretching for about 40 km (25 mi), the section features over 170 turrets, with the Big Flower Watchtower the best-preserved among them. Initially built in the mid-6th century along the Yan Mountains, the wall has witnessed over 150 battles. With our world travel planner, Beijing attractions like The Great Wall of Gubeikou can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
