The wall of the Simatai Great Wall is built on the precipitous mountain and is known as being “risk and odd”. Located in the north of Simatai Village, Gubeikou Town, Miyun District, Beijing, close to Gubei Water Town, Simatai Great Wall was built in Ming Dynasty.
Luo Zhewen, a famous ancient Chinese architect, once commented that “The Great Wall of China is the best in the world. The Great Wall of Simatai is the best of the Great Wall of China! It retains the old and damaged appearance, and it keeps fresh and complete. Looking around the Simatai Great Wall, you will find that there is no new building, but the vastness of the mountains, and the Simatai Great Wall drags the remnant body, as if walking from the historical clouds, but can give people a true sense of history.
It is a more distinctive ancient Great Wall, although some of the Simatai Great Wall sections have suffered damage, it made people more able to see the vicissitudes of the ancient Great Wall, and the scene of fire and wolf smoke seems to be in front of you. For entering the Simatai Great Wall, it needs enter from the east entrance of Gubei Water Town, and the ticket for the off-season is 40 yuan. You can climb on foot after you have entered, or you can choose to take the cable car. Simatai Great Wall is the only Great Wall to open the night scene. But to see the night scene, you need to buy another night view ticket, and you can’t climb on foot. You can only take the cable car. The night view includes only the scope of two beacons. It is relatively small and is not recommended.
Simatai Great Wall is located in Miyun County, Beijing, and is now connected with the Gubei Water Town Scenic Area. This section of the Great Wall belongs to the Ming Great Wall. It is one of the well-preserved Great Walls in China and is listed as a national key cultural relics protection unit.
The Simatai Great Wall is majestic and precipitous. It is worth mentioning that the when the lights are open at the beginning of the night, and the town and the night lights of the Great Wall are really in perfect harmony.
