Heading west from Yumen Pass (go there first before the crowds arrive on the way back from other sites) the Han Great Wall is the next attraction. Most tours stop in a small area with a tower, wall ruins and some left over wheat bushels. It's a fascinating area. It's highly likely though that there are many other sections of... More

You need to be interested in seeing the wall, and then in seeing it in the original form stuck out in the middle of the desert. Then it is just truly fantastic - to see the old remnants of a wall so long and so great. Originally 3m high and 3 m wide, it is amazing how nature has taken... More

The intrepid traveler, one who isn’t afraid to go somewhere that their friends have not yet gone, and one who is looking for adventure, is willing to make new friends, experience new cultures, and nature in all its magnificence, will find all of this, and more in Gansu province, and in particular Dun Huang, the Silk Road’s western China junction....

Going here is like going back in history. Its a magnificent structure and one can't help but marvel at the architecture. Its amazing how they built this endless structure at a time when they didn't have access to high-end tools like we have today. I went here in October, just at the onset of winter. There were ice-cold winds blowing... More

ruins of parts of the great walls of china. if you have seen those in the other parts of china, you are likely to find this not interesting and not impressive considering the efforts u put in to get here and the entrace fee you have to pay

This site is very small but is awesome because it is not restored. You are standing beside parts of the Great Wall that are about 1800 years old. And that is awesome. It is included in a package minivan trip to Yardan Formations Geopark. Unless you're a big history buff, it's probably not worth paying for a taxi to take... More

Considering the location, thousands of kilometers away from Beijing, this is a place worth visiting for every China enthusiast. And a great contrast to the Great Wall sections near Beijing!

When we went there was no people besides me. The wall was simple with no information provided. On the side there was a little shop selling things. Good for learning history but don't stay long.

Great Wall oh yes, views fabulous and the climb to the top a great experience - the walk down is a little daunting... people everywhere all clambering to get to the top and pushing their way through the crowds. I travelled with my sister inlaw who is blonde so we became a great attraction to - being stopped many times... More

This section of the Great Wall is one of the oldest and the fact it remains testifies to the low rainfall. The immensity of the effort and the logistics involved are incredible. You are really seeing an insight into history.
