Qiangzilu Great Wall
 
Qiangzilu Great Wall stands seventy kilometers east of Miyun. And it is surrounded by a maze of hills and has long been a place of key strategic importance. First built during the reign of Emperor Hongwu (1368-1398) of the Ming Dynasty, it has been the backdrop to many important battles at various times throughout the Ming and Qing dynasties.

This 10-kilometer section of wall is very well preserved, and features two beacon towers and four watch towers. It makes a 90-degree turn here, in one of the most magnificent stretches of the Qiangzilu Great Wall. Another feature of this part of the wall is the actual bricks, many of which are carved with Chinese characters. These carvings are rich in historical information, such as how many troops were stationed there at a particular time and details about those who participated in the construction of the wall.
