Longquanyu Loop and Great Wall, 2016/12/17
Eleven photos from a walk around the Longquanyu Great Wall.
We went out to Longquanyu on a smoggy city day and were pleased to find much clearer air in the mountains by the Great Wall.
The first part of the hike took us along a repaired stretch of Great Wall that dipped down steeply in places. This was also the highest section of the hike, and we were able to look off into the distance to see all the Great Wall we’d walk later in the day.
After hiking the last stretch of unrepaired wall in the area we hiked down into a narrow valley. With recent sunny weather the wall part of the walk was free of ice, but the last part of the hike took us along a narrow stream which was already mostly frozen over – very pretty.
