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.

  • 司馬台長城位於北京密雲,距離市區很遠,可以乘坐北京旅遊集散中心的遊覽車前往。攀登長城真的非常累,體力不行的建議上下乘坐纜車。 
  • Beautiful section of the Great Wall. Not as many visitors as it is further from Beijing than Badaling and Mutianyu. Steep climb with high vistas.
  • Buityfull place
  • 北京四大長城(八達嶺, 居庸關, 慕田峪, 司馬台)之中最險要的一條, 但風景亦是最美的一條. 不建議小童和長者前往.
  • Great view
