Hexi Corridor, Great Wall of Ming Dynasty. The south of Hexi Corridor is Qilian Mountain, the north is Heli Mountain, Longshou Mountain and Inner Mongolia desert. Among these mountains, there is a dozens of kilometers wide, hundreds of kilometers long flat land, like corridors, so called Hexi Corridor, it is the ancient Silk Road must pass. The Great Wall is also built along the Hexi Corridor, mostly for the earth, most have collapsed, the national highway along the way hundreds of kilometers, still visible debris broken wall, stand alone in the Gobi Desert!
Alas, it’s really amazing to be able to see this trace of this history. Thinking about it, it’s the feeling left behind by things like the Ming Great Wall, which makes people have a very historical sense of precipitation. I think this is the most intriguing in China. Something to be proud of.
A sense of vicissitudes arises spontaneously. A free attraction, few people come, not far from the widest road in the center of Datong County, I walked there, although it was a bit tired, after all, it is more than 2,000 above sea level, and it feels like crossing.
It’s worth seeing, the sky is blue and there is no pollution
The title picture should be fake, at least the most classic city wall from Xiaoshishan to Niangniangshan is rammed earth, without stone. There is still a small amount of controversy in academic circles as to whether the Datongming Great Wall is considered a Great Wall, but the current mainstream view is that this is the westernmost section of the Ming Great Wall. I personally insist that this is a section of the Great Wall, because it meets some of the defining conditions of the Great Wall. Very good site landscape, it is recommended to go and see. I have lived there since I was young, and have climbed the Great Wall of China countless times, hoping to protect it.
