Shentangyu Great Wall and Shentangyu Natural Scenic Area
 
Shentangyu Great Wall is situated in Huairou County, 65 kilometers northeast of Beijing. Shentangyu Natural Scenic Area was an important fortress for Beijing during the Ming dynasty, and the section of the Great Wall in this area is relatively well preserved.

There are hills to climb, brooks and streams to wade through, and the ruins of the Great Wall to explore. The geographical features of this area have formed gorgeous scenes and inspired romantic names such as Dragon Pool, Love Birds Lake and Crocodile Pond. The Yanxi River runs through this area with its transparently clean water, in which the renowned Huairou County red trout can be spotted swimming.

Shentangyu is also a good place for photography. The ruins of the Great Wall offer beautiful light and shadows depending on the time of day. Large rocks eroded over time create the illusion of animal forms such as eagles, camels and turtles. Locals will sometimes tell stories and legends of how these rocks came to be.
