Longquanyu Great Wall is a beautiful spot combining mountains, canyons, lakes, rivers, ancient villages and untouched Great Wall. It is located in Yanqing District, about 20 kilometers north of the Ming Tombs. It was built in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and it is one of the most ruined stretch of the Wall around Beijing. This section of wall is about 5 kilometers long and connecting Badaling Great Wall in the west and Xishuiyu Great Wall in the east.
Longquanyu Great Wall is built of large granite which makes it very prominent from a distance. This stretch of wall consists of almost 10 towers. The towers and the wall retain their original appearance since its construction about 600 hundreds years ago. It has been out of repair for many years. Longquanyu Great Wall is an ideal place for adventurous and experienced hikers and photographers. The major section of this Great Wall is built along a mountain ridge with cliffs on each side. In the middle of this section of wall it meets a sheer cliff which is a natural barrier.
