  • Another pretty good renovated stretch of wall. Available in auto (pod'ezzhat' comfortably)

  • Climbed to the seventh Tower, at the very beginning of a very steep climb, then a little easier, expect strength and bring water, buy it on the wall.

  • Be in China and not visit the wall-just a crime. Therefore, whatever plot you choose, visit her to be. We went with the driver, so no one was able to visit the site. From the wall of the spectacular scenery, it is worth spending effort to climb the wall. But it is certainly a story, and it doesn't matter that the plot was restored: peremeshhaesh'sja here in the past.
