The Great Wall at Simatai

I did not climb the wall at Simatai but the bus I was on drove over there to pick up hikers who made the four-hour trek from Jinshanling. Here are some pictures from the bottom of the mountains there.

This section of the wall is away from Simatai and away from Jinshanling towards a section which as not been restored. At some point in this direction the wall is closed because of safety concerns. A few climbers at fallen to their deaths where the wall was in disrepair and it was only a couple of feet wide on a steep cliff.

A zoom shot of the same section

There is a nice area of restaurants and shops at Simatai and I took this shot from the second floor patio.

Another zoom shot.
