Simatai Great Wall
is located in Miyun County which is 120 kilometers from Beijing. It is the only section of the Great Wall that has preserved the original Ming Dynasty architecture. Simatai was first constructed in the 6th century and later rebuilt by General Qi Jiguang of the Ming Dynasty. This section is 5.4 kilometers in length and has 35 beacon towers and the steepness of the wall is the distinctive features of Simatai. In 1987 Simatai Great Wall was enlisted into UNESCO Heritage Sites.
