Simatai Great Wall

Located in Miyun district, 130 kilometers northeast of Beijing and neighboring Gubei Water Town, Simatai Great Wall is considered as the most dangerous part of the Great Wall. 

Covering a distance of 5.4 km, it is the only original section of the Great Wall that dates back to the Ming Dynasty.

For anyone intent on experiencing a section of the Great Wall that retains a more antiquated air, the Great Wall at Simatai remains one of the best options. It is also the only section of the Great Wall that provides a night tour for tourists. It is said that since the Ming Dynasty, there has been a tradition that people holding palace lanterns visit this section.
