Simatai Great Wall

The Simatai Great Wall is located on the border of Miyun County, Beijing Municipality and Luanping County, Hebei Province, 130 kilometers from the city. It is a very interesting part of the Great Wall to visit, but climbing to the two summit towers is dangerous and most people aren't even allowed to try it. Only a small part of the wall has been restored here.


The Great Wall is the wonder of the world,
Simatai is the wonder of the Great Wall.

Hotel at Simatai. That's the ridge in the background if you can see through the fog.
