Suspension Wall

Suspension Great Wall
Eleven kilometers (6.83 miles) to the downtown Jiayuguan City and 6.5 kilometers (4.03 miles) from Jiayuguan Pass, the SuspensioGreat Wall was built on the ridge with the gradient of 45 degrees, hence the name. From a distance, it is said to resemble a dragon to extend its body towards the ground. It is an extension of the walls at the Jiyuguan Pass towards the north, was an integral part of the ancient defense system at the Jiayuguan Pass.

Suspension Great Wall was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Work began on it in 1539, and was completed in the following year. It was built using layer upon layer of stone and yellow earth. In subsequent years, the wall has dwindled from its original length of 1.5 kilometers (0.93 miles) to its current 750 meters (2, 460 feet).
 
It was renovated in 1987 and there are now 3 towers, two at the ends of the wall, and one in the middle. For the convenience of climbing, 400 steps are built on the wall. The scenery viewing from the top is peculiar: the deserts extending to the horizon, with a few oases in it.
