When mentioning the Great Wall, we are more likely to talk about the Great Wall in the Qin, Han and Ming Dynasties but overlook the Great Wall during the North Qi period. Dating back to 550AD, the North Qi GreatWall has a history of more than 1460 years and stretches mainly from the areasunder the administration of Hebei, Inner Mongolia and Shanxi provinces. The North Qi Great Wall is seldom seen nowadays. Some sections fortunately remainin its original appearance because they have been rebuilt as the basis of some parts of Ming Great Wall. The section we will visit soon today is a good example
We set off from our hotel at 8 this morning, after about two hours and via the beautiful Jinhai Lake and Yangzhuang Reservoir, the Ming Great Wall rebuilt on the basis of the North Qi and piled up by stones, will come into our sight. Because the wall isn’t in good condition and has not been rebuilt yet, we will have to walk on a path along the wall where we can also feel its turbulent history. Long stand the Great wall through fierce battles over the Chinese history. Along the two sides of the Wall are fruit frees,blooming in spring, luxuriant in summer and fruitful in autumn… The views feature themselves quite differently in the four seasons.
After climbing up a mountain path for about 10 minutes, we are beside the original Wall which has been standing for over thousand years. You can touchits skin of wall and feel its soul and spirit. Some three or four hours later,we will reach the highest point of this section of wall – San Jie Bei -literally three boundary tablets. This is very special in such a large country like China. It is here on the wall, and only here, boundaries of three provinces (Beijing, Hebei and Tianjin) meet together. Then after 20 minutes’walking, a small village in the mountains is approaching where we can try some traditional Chinese home-made delicacies. After lunch, we will return to downtown Beijing and say goodbye to our pleasant journey. This section of the Great Wall is specially appreciated by people who want to see the origin wall and avoid touristic sites.
