Great Wall of China Mutianyu North Unrestored

Peter O.
Description
This is the northern unrestored section of the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu, including the Mutianyu Ox Horn. There are two main tourist areas of the wall. The most popular section is at Badaling, NW of the capital Beijing. The second most popular section is this at Mutianyu, about 79km (49 miles) NE of Bejing. Construction of the Great Wall started in around 700 BC but most of the current wall dates from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). At that time the wall stretched across the country for approximately 6,400km (4,000 miles). Of that wall around 40% has since disappeared, 40% is in poor condition and 20% has been restored. Modelled by Peter Olsen, Brighton-le-Sands, Australia. #beijing #china #great #great_wall_of_china #mutianyu #ox_horn #wall
