The Great Wall of Gubeikou, Beijing

(4.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit The Great Wall of Gubeikou and other Beijing attractions using our handy Beijing holiday planner.
