Great Wall · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
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.
