Explore the Great Wall


£12.50 
 

The Great Wall of China is the largest construction on earth, yet myths about it are more widely known than facts. The best way to appreciate the Great Wall is to explore it on foot. This richly illustrated book focuses on especially rewarding parts of the Ming Dynasty Wall (1368-1644). The book offers: walking notes on seven sections in detail; clear site plans of Badaling, Mutianyu and Simatai; two map panels showing the entire Wall network, plus one panel around Beijing (larger scale); practical information about transport and travel; introduction to Mandarin Chinese, Pinyin and pictographs; lavishly illustrated, with 70 colour photographs; rucksack-friendly format The sections include Laolongtou, where the Wall runs into the sea, and Panjiakou reservoir, a tranquil hike and boat trip. The glorious stretch from Simatai to Jinshanling runs along high ridges with 30 watch towers, and the Badaling and Mutianyu sections are surprisingly accessible from Beijing.
