Jinshanling Section of the Great Wall

The Jinshanling section of the Great Wall is located in Luanping County, Chengde City, in Hebei bordering Beijing's Miyun County and is an exquisite example of the Great Wall of China. This section of the wall is built and meanders along a chain of mountains and boasts great views of the surrounding area, the elegant scenery at this section is the most beautiful of all the sections of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall. In terms of architectural art, the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall is unique in style, with the towers coming in square, circular, rectangular, and corner forms and the watchtowers coming in three-, four- and five-embrasure design. Jinshanling's "script bricks, barricades, walls for resisting cavalries of the enemy and walls depicted with pictures of Kylin(Chinese dragon)” could be said to be the four highlights of the Great Wall and this section is definitely worth a visit.
