I had other plans for the day but somehow ended walking this wall and was very impressed without knowing at the time any of the history of the wall. You get great views to Xuanwuhu Lake and park below, the Purple Mountain district and the city. I walked this wall and continued walking to look at Pipa and Qian Lakes. About two years ago I cycled the Xi'an city wall which has a bigger reputation than Nanjing's wall but to me the views from Nanjing's wall are more impressive. Nanjing's wall does not seem to attract the Chinese visitor numbers like Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum and the Xiaoling Mausoleum of Ming Dynasty. I found myself walking a large part of the wall alone. Tip: Make sure you have good walking shoes as the surface is uneven.
