The Great Wall of China, which stretches tortuously for 21 thousand kilometers in northern China, is one of the most famous human creations in the world. In 2007 it was chosen as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, along with the Taj Mahal and the Colosseum in Rome.
It was included by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in the World Heritage List in 1987.
When tourists visit Beijing, they flock to the most famous parts of the Great Wall of China, but few of them visit the less famous part of it.
Part of the wall, known as Jiankou, extends for 20 kilometers over sharp green mountain peaks. And if you look at it from the valley, it will look like the garlands that adorn the top of every mountain.
This part of the wall is located 100 kilometers from Beijing, but it is completely different from the adjacent parts of the wall. In the vicinity of Jiankou Wall, there is no sign of a gift shop or cable car, and no one stands to sell tickets. In order to reach this part of the wall, you have to walk for 45 minutes up the mountain.
