A Q iangzilu V-shaped Great Wall
This is China’s only V-shaped section of Great Wall.
It is rare that some of the Great Wall bricks are carved with Chinese inscription, which shows the brickyard that made these wall bricks. Legend has it that Li Zicheng, the leader of a renowned peasant revolt in late Ming Dynasty, had fought a brutal combat here. Hundreds of people died in that battle and in history the battle field was called “corpse ditch”.

B Huangcaoliang Great Wall
Huangcaoliang scenic area is home to Beijing’s many gorgeous mountains including the highest Lingshan Mountain. The geographical features here resemble the Tibetan Plateau with some Tibetan Buddhism traits such as piles of Mani stone. Here lies the most western part of Beijing’s Great Wall which consists of seven hidden guard-towers.

C Huanghuacheng Great Wall
The Great Wall boasts as one of the most prestigious section of the Great Wall in Beijing. Huanghua literall means “yellow flowers”. Huanghuacheng is mostly noted for its perfect blend of water and walls. In summertime the area is all covered by blossoming yellow flowers. The entire section consists of six forts, six passes, twelve beacon-towers, and thirty-two guard towers.

D Shixiaguan Great Wall
