This great wall was part of oldest built during Qin, Ming & Han Dynasty. Its called overhanging great wall because when view from top of mountain, it just look like hanging rope among the cliffs.

It’s such a shame that the authorities taper down any genuine parts of the wall and replace it with a concrete Disney like replacement. Show us the original and sensitive reconstructions. The restorations detract from the real history which seems to have been overlooked

This rebuilt section of the wall is a tough vertical climb but well worth the toil. The views from the top are beautiful and gives a real idea of life on the wall for soldiers garrisoned to man the beacons.

A nice climb with a pretty good view. Been to many parts of Great Wall, and found this part to be more vandalised than other parts. There's a gimmicky love lock railings on the way down.
