Great Wall at Simatai

Great Wall at Simatai
Originally uploaded by JoeDuck
Another shot of Simatai, the section of the Great Wall that has had somewhat limited visitation, especially by foreigners, because it is about 100km from Beijing.

The hike up the ridgeline on top of the wall was unbelievable as the wall stretched up and around the cliffs to the East and as far as you could see to the West. This section has had very limited restoration yet much of the huge structural components are largely intact, including the watchtowers where overlapping rocks hold up massive stone cielings.
