The SiMaTai Great Wall
The Simatai Great Wall is the only ancient Great Wall in my country that retains the original appearance of the Ming Great Wall. The Great Wall is built along the ridge like a knife and an axe, and it is extremely steep, which also creates a variety of forms of the walls of this section of the Great Wall. There are 16 watchtowers in the east section of the Great Wall and 18 watchtowers in the west section. Currently, only 10 watchtowers in the east section are open in the scenic area (up to East 10 watchtowers).
Authentic Great Wall Attractions
Simatai Great Wall is the latest Great Wall attraction in Beijing. It is located at the junction of Beijing and Hebei. Compared with Badaling and other Great Wall attractions, it is farther away from the urban area. There are not many tourists coming to Simatai Great Wall. , there is no crowding phenomenon like the Badaling Great Wall.
In addition, the Simatai Great Wall was developed later to avoid the problem of over-repair. Compared with the Badaling Great Wall, it looks more authentic. Looking around, it is almost full of broken walls.
Every autumn, the red leaves here also attract many tourists. On the ancient Great Wall, seeing the red leaves all over the mountain is completely different from the feeling of seeing red leaves in Xiangshan.
Tour route reference
The climbing path of the Simatai Great Wall is relatively steep. It takes a certain amount of physical strength to walk up the mountain path for more than 1 kilometer from the foot of the mountain to the watchtower. At the foot of the Great Wall, there is a cableway that can directly reach the vicinity of the “East 8th Floor” and “East 5th Floor”. Tourists with limited physical strength can choose to take the cableway. The cableway costs 90 yuan for a one-way trip and 160 yuan for a round trip.
