Mutianyu Great Wall, Beijing, China
About 40 miles north of the Beijing city, the wall was first built during North Qi dynasty (550-557 CE) and rebuilt over the centuries. in 1567, General Qi Jiguang reinforced the Great Wall along almost its entirety, included extensive repairs and improvements to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall to suppress the increasingly bothersome Mongol incursions. The Mutianyu is one of the best preserved sections of the Great Wall - dotted with rare watchtowers - snaking through a beautiful wooded scenery that bursts into life with the seasons.
